A taste of Cuba

One of my wife's friends has been visiting from out-of-town yesterday and today. The two of them headed off to a Pampered Chef party last night and I took the opportunity to spend some quality time on the back porch with a fine Cuban cigar that an old friend recently gave me.

It's been a few months since I've had a cigar and the last time I had a Cuban was on our honeymoon cruise almost a year ago. It was absolutely perfect. Last night was chilly enough to let me know that fall was upon me, but not so cold that I needed anything more than my long sleeved shirt. And that cigar. Even though it had obviously seen better days (probably due to the fact that it had travelled from Cuba to Europe to the West Coast before making it to North Carolina), it was still quite tasty. And so very relaxing. I had forgotten how well a good Romeo y Julieta finishes. And, combined with the still air last night, the draw of this puro was perfect for blowing exquisite smoke rings.

With the recent stresses of work and life all around me, a little taste of Cuba last night was just what the doctor ordered.
