"Fear not my dear Elspeth, friend and fellow tobacophile...to me, one of the true joys of social tobaco use is the journey of discovering just how many "flavors" there are out there. I was thinking, as I was enjoying your post above, that…"
"How wonderful that you didn't forget and indeed chose to address the other portion of this discussion, that of the partaking of tobacco products. I do so enjoy a fine cigar, but find my tastes a little on the "girly" side of things,…"
"Coming from an old tobaco farming family, I consider it an honor to post the first of what I hope are many opinions about this lovely and historical plant. As we are forced further and further from popular society, we enjoyers of tobaco must stick…"
"Ms. Abernathy, Mr. Killick is quite correct in his modification. I have also tried the butterscotch schnapps version. Either one will do the trick on a cold night.
Perhaps it is my imagination, but it has always seemed to me that the peppermint has…"
"I thank you, my dear,,,when associating with quality ladies such as yourself, one must always look one's best. As far as the horseless carriage goes, one must keep the coals hotly stoked to maintain a functioning steam box. My driving coat is…"
"My dear Mr. Killick, do not EVER give up on gin...'tis quite a forgiving tonic and as it has apparently been many years since your most unfortunate experience, you may find that all unpleasantness has disappeared from said intoxicant. It was…"
"Ahhh, now that's more like it!! Now, I have to find a nice fire to sit beside. The good prof. and I usually find ourselves at this time of year with an outside blaze in the chiminea with some imbibement or other...a most splendid idea for this…"
Greetings all! Permit me to introduce myself. I go by the name of Elspeth Abernathy...yes, a bit of a mouthful, so you can call me "Ellie" or "Beth" if you're of a casual state of mind, (although I'm never quite altogether casual), just never Elsie as it reminds me of my late grandmother's cow. I am a woman who finds herself lodged in both the world of the the artistic and the practical...a writer...a tinkerer of small engines, gadgets, gizmos, and the like. I am non-maternal, low maintenance, fair minded, and enjoy relaxing with any number of fine elixirs and a good cigar. My passion is music (listening to, not creating, alas) and my beloved, Professor Evans DeMurgatroyd...a most fascinating fellow!

I thank you, my dear,,,when associating with quality ladies such as yourself, one must always look one's best. As far as the horseless carriage goes, one must keep the coals hotly stoked to maintain a functioning steam box. My driving coat is constantly in the charge of my batman for a good "de-sooting". He's a good man!
Yes, the kerosene-powered device employed by good Phineas works wonders...I was there on Sunday, but returned to my abode early in the afternoon, being somewhat chilled and ready for warm libations and American Football. And, speaking of it, I did indeed visit that marvelous apothecary, Mr. Tracey, myself on both days, for doses of his marvelous coldness elixirs! Cheers!
And a pleasant good morning to you, my dear. Yes, I fear that the weather will be quite nasty this weekend, but our friendships and fellowship will warm our hearts, if not our bottoms. The most excellent elixir provended by good Tracy at the 'Lair will be just the thing...the cherry wheat/cream stout mix, I think, yes...and the cigars, well...:-)
Yes, How I remember that nasty business at Rork's Drift...Darned Zulus turned out to be very fine infantry! Actually, I always thought Michael Caine would play me in the movie one day...this pic will do till I have something more suitable.
