“Smoked Up” No.90

Looks like the hot weather in 2014 is a thing of the past. The temps have been dropping into the low 40s at night and peaking at around 70s during the day. I love this type of weather, but don’t like the cool nights. I started work on my “smoke shack” with my heater, tv, […]


“Smoked Up” No.51

I hope everybody had a safe and happy Christmas. Mine was pretty good. My daughter racked up on some toys! I don’t think I have seen so much pink and Barbie items in my life!! I didn’t get to smoke too many cigars during this week, this week was more about family for me. I typically […]


“Smoked Up” No.37

The lesson I learned the past week is: You don’t really know how good you have it sometimes.  Going back a few months, I told you about our good friend “Uncle Bob”, the bad stroke that happened to him and the condition he is in. Well, Bob has moved closer to his daughter in New Orleans […]


“Smoked Up” No.34

“Smoked Up” No.24

Summer is here in the deep south!! Well, not until the 21st, but its hotter than blue blazes here! Most days last week were 90°+ with a heat index in the area of 105°. With that being said, my cigar time has been cut down to late evening if possible. My corneal ulcer cleared up on Saturday. […]


“Smoked Up” No.15

Another week has crept passed us, which means another issue of “Smoked Up”. This week’s issue is late due to some typical “Spring Cleaning” and unexpected truck mechanical issues… Like usual, I had a variety of cigars when I did get time to sit down for a smoke. From light and mild to bold and […]


A. Fuente Between The Lines

Today I’ve reached deep into my humidor to smoke a fairly rare cigar. The Fuente Between The Lines comes from the Hemingway Series and sports a barber pole wrapper. Watch the video to find out what I think of this hard-to-find cigar. Name: Between The Lines Company: A. Fuente Wrapper: Connecticut Shade & Maduro Binder: […]
