Some of you know, and many of you don’t know, that Craig has been hospitalized for the last 3 weeks, and had part of his right foot amputated due to complications from diabetes. Craig, this past Thursday, was transported to a rehabilitation center so that he can learn how to walk again with the aid of a prosthetic device on his foot.
If you would like to visit Craig, the name and address of the rehabilitation center is…
Springs of Monarch Landing
2308 N. Route 59
Naperville, IL. 60563
Phone: (630) 300-1350 Room # 144
If you can’t visit, please give Craig a call or send him a card-he would love to here from you!
Nothing is really new at this point, it’s sort of a slack time. Starting next month, I should have a loot of show news for you…
NEW/OLD TOBACCO RELEASE:
One of our members, Pat V., has been working in collaboration with Mr. Dan Johnson (The Standard Tobacco Company of Pennsylvania), and Saturday night brought in samples of the following tobaccos. They are:
John Cotton’s No.1: A light Latakia blend with lots of Orientals and Virginia.
John Cotton’s Nos.1&2: Has more Latakia plus a blend of Orientals and Turkish along with a base of Virginia.
John Cotton’s Smyrna: Which is a medium-full Latakia blend, with a healthy amount of Turkish tobaccos.
Bengal Slices: Which is a rich crumble cake with Latakia, Virginia, bright Orientals and a touch of Black Cavendish with a light top note added.
War Horse Ready Cut: Which is a rich blend of Burley, Red Virginia, a good amount of Dark Fired and some Perique with a mild flavoring added. It’s got a nice “Nick Kick” but is pretty smooth.
Pat informed me that there will be samples of each at the “West Coast Show” (Las Vegas), and that they should be available in tins as of the first of December through www.pipesandcigars.com
Well, that’s it for this time, hope to see many more of our members at our November meeting…
