I've gone green


Got in some straight Perique for blending experiments today. I'm currently smoking a hybrid mixture that's roughly 60% Bayou Night and 40% Perique. I call it "Marie Laveau."

The Anspessade

click to enlarge

I don't remember exactly the book I scanned this from; I think it was a book on French history titled something like The World of Louis XIV. This graphic, listed as "ranks and uniforms of Louis XIV's army," is notable to us because of the picture on the third row center. The anspessade apparently has a pipe as part of his uniform.

I have added a new Blogger gadget at the bottom of the sidebar that shows the top 10 most popular posts, going back to when Blogger instituted its own statistics function.
