Ooh Ooh That Smell! Can’tcha Smell That Smell?


I drove the kids up to PA to visit with their dad’s family this evening.  It’s a four hour round trip, which gave me the opportunity to lament the lack of decent radio stations between Northern VA and Breezewood, PA.  However, since my A/C is on the fritz, it also meant open windows all the way.  So I enjoyed the opportunity to reflect on some of my favorite smells:

  • The air just after a thunderstorm
  • Honeysuckle
  • Skunk
  • Fresh blacktop
  • Farm animals
  • Cow manure
  • Freshly cut grass
  • Wood fire burning

Yep.  I did say “skunk” and “cow manure” and that’s the honest truth.  I also like the smell of sulfur and bacon.  (Hey, who doesn’t like the smell of bacon!?)  I know.  I’m weird.

I also got to visit the GIGANTIC METAL CHICKEN on Rte 15.  But that’s tomorrow’s story.  😉
