It’s been a strange couple of days. Friday morning the transmission on my 2002 Connecticut Shade PT Cruiser went out while my wife was driving it, so Saturday we went out and bought a brand new Toyota Yaris. The PT has been a good car, but after it was involved in it’s second accident and probably got wet, once the weather warmed up it developed a mildew odor that we couldn’t get rid of, I even tried multiple cigars and the smell wouldn’t go away! It stank! The Yaris gets much better gas mileage than the PT, and using less gas is something that’s important to me. I only use the car when the weather is bad as I prefer to ride my Yamaha Majesty to go to work or if I have to go someplace by myself. The PT is being donated to the Purple Heart Car Donation Program, which benefits wounded and disabled veterans.
After we got home from a great Flyers game today, I lit up a CAO Black Bengal (6″ x 50) and took a short walk and finished up on my front porch listening to the latest Stogiefresh podcast. The cigar was pretty nice, however there were a couple of wrapper defects at the head that, while not effecting the performance of the cigar, the splitting wrapper detracted slightly from the experience. It was a smooth cigar, with what I would call a woody flavor. Certainly a decent cigar that burned well and tasted nice, despite the wrapper flaws.
I’ll return to having the cats choose the next winner, but this time we’ll place the cards with the names face down because I think some of the cats can actually read. I want to make every effort to have the selection of the winner as fair and impartial as possible. The winner will be selected from those who leave a comment on this blog post. This months prize is a really cool Drew Estate Hat and a Liga Privada cutter, courtesy of my friends at Drew Estate. So leave some comments and win some stuff!
**Late note: it occurred to me that I forgot to set an end date for for this month’s contest. The cut off is midnight on Saturday, April 17. I’ll put the cats to work the following day and post the winner in my Sunday post.**
That’s all for now, until the next cigar,
