I have been told that smell is the one sense that can take you back to an earlier time faster than any other. I recall several years ago walking into my elementary school and smelling certain smells associated with grade schools and suddenly I was transported back to being 6 years old again.
I was near a lake recently and smelled gasoline from a passing motor boat. Suddenly I remembered vacations in Canada as a child when we went to Lake Superior. I remember my grandfather's 7 1/2 horse Johnson Seahorse motor.
Another smell that takes me instantly back to my childhood is the smell of a pipe. My grandfather smoked a pipe. I always liked it a lot. In fact another person I liked a lot as a child smoked a pipe, too.
Still .... there are certain sounds that can instantly take me back to an earlier time in my life.
Here's one of them. Speaking of "here" -- here's to summer! The instant you hear the first chords of this song you KNOW what it is. (If you don't, leave this blog as you are not mature enough to be here!)
