OLD SONGS

Question Of The Week 4-3-17

What makes you nostalgic?

The smell of bread baking.

The Old Rugged Cross reminds me of my grandpa. I hear him singing every time. Favorite songs bring back loved faces.


Drinking lemonade on the veranda
Certain songs, and Springtime brandings
The smell of pipe smoke and sawdust

Music. I was picking up a sandwich for lunch one day and the Tijuana Brass came on. I immediately thought of my late dad, who loved their music, so I ordered a CD when I got back to the office
It is almost always smells which make me nostalgic. Cinnamon, baking, the scent of cut grass...

So many things make me nostalgic...a drive through my hometown...many of the things Monica and I see at estate sales...and, oh yes, the smell of cigars. I can never smell a cigar without thinking of my Great Uncle Eddie! (Rob)

Seeing backyard veggie patches and fruit trees, takes me back to being five and planting radishes and carrots with mum in the far backyard section down beyond the lawn.

The smell of a good cigar. Reminds me of my days of a newspaper delivery boy. An older gentleman would drive down my street at the exact same time every day smoking his cigar, so I could always tell when I was running on time or not.


Visiting my mom & dad's house always brings back old memories. I see my aunts, uncles and old family friends in those walls. I feel surrounded, but in a good way.


Babies and toddlers. Reminds me of the most stressful but most beautiful times in my life.


Looking at old photos of my kids when they were babies.

  15. I think possibly the strongest evoker is smell. Too many to list fragrant and noxious. Particular favourites - wet grass and a babies neck.
