Thursday Afternoon Cigar

A Rocky Patel Sun Grown and a good book.

We're reading The Frackers by Gregory Zuckerman.  So far a great book about entrepreneurs in the oil business in the 80's and beyond who, through trial and error, found better ways to exploit oil deposits.  While fracking is obviously part of the story, so is horizontal drilling.  It is great to read about the men willing to risk everything and who caught the big oil companies flat-footed.   I'm in Chapter 3 at the moment and am finding it to be one of those rare books where I can't seem to read fast enough. 

A sad note: The black and white rabbit that is usually in these cigar photos passed away this week.  She was over 9 years old, and had been a key partner in the Ushanka experience.  She was a sweet gal who graced over 100 Ushanka posts since 2006.  She will be missed.
