Dave's not-a-post VI

Have I told you how much I love sailing?

Still on vacation, still not giving two hoots about the computer.


And I actually do love sailing.

Ok, vacation is a good post for this.

Do you remember the cigar you'd mailed to me, oh, about 8 or 9 years ago? With the leather-wrapped glass tube?

Well, I finally pulled it from the humidor, where it's been aging in perfect condition, lo these many years.

Sparked it up out on the front porch, late afternoon shade, cool breeze on a hot day.

The stogie was a Don Collins, labeled "Puerto Rico". About a 48x6, Double Corona size, just short of a Churchill. Blonde wrapper, but didn't appear to be Connecticut Shade. Something else, but I don't know?

I've got to tell you, that was one fine cigar. Milder than my norm, but with a smooth, tasty, kind of "Bailey's Irish Crème" type of smoke. No bite at all, smooth and easy draw.

All in all, a fine cigar, and I'm sure, all the better for the ageing.

So, once again, years later, THANKS, amigo! I did truly appreciate that smoke.

Now, you and the Raging Mrs. gotta make it down to South Texas again someday. Burn some more gunpowder, eh?

I do remember that cigar. It was grown, aged and rolled all in Puerto Rico; that was their claim to fame. If you ever find yourself in Old San Juan, you have to stop in at their store.

And the Mrs. and I might just end up in Texas, depending on what Uncle Sam says in a few years. Until then, if I'm going to be in the neighborhood I'll let you know.
