Cap'n is probably all time best cereal. Peanut Butter Crunch is unreal.
Fruity Pebbles were awesome. Classic Lucky Charms. Reese's Peanut Butter Crunch.
Longshot here, but does anybody remember Wheaties Dunk'a'balls? Fantastic. Maybe best cereal ever. Tiny basketballs that tasted like Peanut Butter Crunch. Man, what a cereal.
Damn, I should buy more cereal.

I'm a huge fan of packaging design and they really nailed it. The place I go to is pretty big, but the Leaf stuck out. I hadn't seen them before so I had to ask if you were supposed to smoke them ragged like that or pull the leaf off. I was relieved/disappointed to learn that you do pull it off. I kinda wanted the extreme funk.
I can't remember which I grabbed. They had four varieties I think. I'll let you know how it goes.

Mike, I got the last Anejo of the year. No more til November. He said he was surprised he even still had one. Picked up this funky looking Leaf while I was there too. I'm a sucker for cool packaging design.





Excellent choices! The Leaf is affordable and decent. I like the Maduro.


Mike.

That Maduro is a great choice.

Re: Things I Love (2)


File under: Don't know what you go til it's gone, but damn, I really miss my old neighborhood. I was only there for a few hours, but saw the whole cast of characters.
That smoke shop is so good. I haven't found one better in Jersey. Their stuff is always fresh and there's always a good crowd in there. It's low key BYOB too, which I'm not sure the legality of, but there's cops in there a lot too, so I think it's "neighborhood good" or whatever. ha
Supposed to be 45 degrees here tomorrow night. That should be good enough for me to get one of those three in.

You have a maduro. I don't remember what I bought but it was probably a Connecticut. Again, good but nothing special, and it wasn't cheap. I'm a sucker for a weird looking wrapper.

I better hurry up and get you those cubans!

This is probably the first one I disagree with, my buddy bought a box and we both had one. The first few puffs was like someone emptied a pepper shaker in my mouth. After I got through the first 1/3 it was good, but I wasn't about to smoke another.

Anyone remember Quisp? Maybe it was spelled Qisp. Little martian for the character logo.

You sure it was a chapter one Black label? I have two left I'm going to smoke one to see what I missed.

Don't have to go that far afield to find that. There's a good ol' boy about 2.5 miles from my house who has a thriving small gas engine repair shop. He's both legally blind AND deaf. Two honkin' big hearing aids make him just sort of able to carry on a conversation.

He can rebuild a carburetor faster than I can figure out what tools I need to do the work.

New mattress ordered. Hope it’s a big improvement over our old one.

Took me almost 2 years to get used to my new mattress. Went from a normal to a pillow top.

Imo, nothing beats the Beauty Rest black line. It's a pillowtop and is the most comfortable bed I've ever owned.
