    A flavor that takes you back in time

    Do you have any flavors that have strong associations for you? I've been eating Reese's Pieces recently, and the flavor brings me back to reminisce about when my Mom took my brother and I to see E.T. in the theater. A happy memory.

    Not so much a flavor as a smell. My favorite smell in the world is orange blossoms. Every time I smell them it takes me back to life as a kid where there were orange groves all around our neighborhood and we could smell the blossoms during the orange season.

    For me that smell would be night blooming jasmine which I abhorr. It reminds me of the time I spent working on my senior project for college... I spent many late summer nights working on my project with the windows open and my parents had the jasmine planted in the backyard.

    To this day, I start to stress out whenever I smell it.

    My grandfather and father moved to NC a year before the rest of us. They wanted to establish jobs and a house for us when we moved. My grandfather held to his promise. My dad got high and lost a lot of weight. Anyway. We were at a laundry mat and my granddad bought us all one of these:



    He said it sort of tastes like Mountain Dew, but better. It was better.

    I miss my granddad. He passed away almost 15 years ago and I think about him a lot still.
    I tell my wife that I really wished she could have met him. And my daughters too. He was the best.

    My grandfather was the coolest guy ever too. He died New Year's Eve 2006/2007. I was spending NYE with the girl I'd only just started seeing about a month before (now my wife) when I got the call from my brother.

    From all the stories she'd heard from me about my grandpa, she sorely wishes she'd got to meet him as well. Somewhere here in Foo is a little memorial thread I did about him where I posted a little memorial plaque type of photoshop I did for my grandma.

    My wife feels the same way. I talk a lot about him and our trips together and all the stuff he did for us.
    He was a gruff, old man. Like steel. His parents were from Russia and when they came to America his mother died early on. He quit school in the 8th grade and worked steady until he died from cancer at 78 years old. I don't remember him taking time off until it was vacation. He worked his butt off.

    When we buried him, he was wearing his carpenter pants and a flannel shirt and steel toed shoes. No one ever saw him in any other attire. Ever.

    edit:
    I do remember this one time he fell off 2 tiers of scaffolding, and broke his hip when he was in his 70s. No sooner had it healed then he was back at it working full time again.

    Sounds very similar to my grandfather.

    He quit school in the 8th grade and started working with his father as a stone mason. He eventually joined the navy where, for a time, he was an assistant in the ship's library. It may not have been huge, but he read every single book in that little library (nearly all the classics). For somebody who quit school in the 7th grade, he was one of the smartest people I ever knew.

    He did various things in his younger days, stone mason, taught electronics to high school kids out of his garage, but most of his life he did construction. He was one of the 'old-school' guys who knew how to do things the right way and some of the companies sought him out pretty hard for important jobs. He worked up until about his late 70s when he finally realized it was time to stop when he nearly fell off a ladder 50 feet in the air. Then he stayed home in pain most of the time. A life of construction work had left him with such a crooked back that he walked hunched over (refused to use the walker or cains he was given). He died at the age of about 80 on the toilet!

    That's my grandpa!!

    In addition to my statement about him nearly falling off the 50 ft ladder in his late 70s. I also remember when I was a teenager (he was probably in his 60s at the time), he was trimming a tree by his house and fell about 35-40 feet (hitting branches) and broke about 15 bones or so.

    That was before he was back at construction climbing the 50 ft ladder and such!

    The guy was like a Clydesdale (horse, not cyclist)....a true sturdy work horse.

    Boston Baked Beans (the candy ones). When I was about 7, and visiting my Grandparents, I'd get to ride down to the corner store. I'd usually get these, or possibly a Mallow Cup.
    The search for inner peace continues...

    Nestle Push-Ups. Man, those were good, and I haven't had one in ages. I'm sure there is nothing good for you in them, but I could go for one right about now.

    Huh. Speaking about that, for me, it would be Tabasco. Backfired, in my case, though.

    Very cool. They aren't built like that much anymore.
    I remember my granddad's hands. Huge, rough, with busted nails, and callouses the size of quarters. When he taught me to ride a bike, he would put one of those meaty claws on my neck and push me.
    Then I remember teaching my daughter the same way. At first not realizing it. Then she asked me to stop and I got all sad thinking about him. But she's dainty.

    Actually, my dad was around, so most of the main stuff was taught by my mom & dad. But G-ma and G-pa were like 2nd parents to us (brother and I) because we were so close.

    OK...enough thread hijacking! We'll return this thread to its regularly scheduled Foonicity!
