This Transports Me Back To Childhood

Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood.

The slap of the screen door takes me back. We didn't have air conditioning until I was in junior high school. So we used fans, attic fan, open windows and the old screen door. That makes me think of summer.

The smell of honeysuckle, roses, gardenias and plum trees. I had a plum tree outside my bedroom window and would have the window open for cooling and it smelled so sweet. Again, makes me think of summer time. I could be lazy and lay in the floor of my bedroom with a bowl of popcorn, an iced tea and a stack of mystery books and read and read and read!

The taste of watermelon, a good ripe cantalope, ripe tomatoes, iced tea all make me think of summer times in my childhood.
