Well after being ill for nearly a month and four trips to the emergency room one of which was by my personal physician I am turning the corner, I hope.

I won't get into the details as they were tough enough while happening so suffice it to say I felt steady enough to have an inaugural smoke in Bo Nordh's personal Apple shaped bowl with horn accent filled with one of the tobaccos he favored, Dunhill 965.
A lovely smoke to pay homage to Bo, keep it smokey!

Welcome back and I'm glad that you're still with us. Just shows you the merits of smoking a pipe!

I always get a bit concerned when I don't see you post for a while Mr. Banjo. But glad that you're back again and seemingly on the mend. Keep it smokey brother!

Cool


Cheers,

RR

Aw man, sorry to hear about your recent health troubles! I had no idea. I was wondering where you've been, actually. Glad you're back and kickin'! sunny

Well I ran into another wall around the corner with another ER trip for four hours last evening,  now I follow up with my physician this morning.

Well my physician has ordered some extensive blood tests and will be calling my oncologist to cancel my scheduled maintenance tomorrow figuring that it would interfere with the testing on Thursday.

He has also decided to speak with an infection specialist feeling this may be either my kidneys or perhaps the port I had surgically implanted a little over 8 years ago, hopefully they will be successful in taming the beast, thanks for all the well wishes, warm regards.

I will dedicate tomorrow's morning smoke to you, Banjo. You have been a steady source of class, jocularity and fervor for the pipe. It is no small thing in this world we live in, and I am grateful for all you give us. So for you, I will keep it smokey and send thoughts, good vibrations and prayers southward with my wisps.

Whole Lotta Love - S13
