Scent-A-Mental Memories

Aluminum Percolator

My childhood alarm clock was varied, often twas

Waking to the sound and smell of coffee perking.

Blurp, blurp, goes the old aluminum percolator,

A signal it was five am and mom was awake,

Bustling about the kitchen, making toast with jam.

I snuggle under the fresh smelling sheets and blankets

Knowing I have another hour before I hear

Dad’s voice calling,“ Leona! Time to get up!”

Those sounds, smells,and sights are now memories

Of carefree days in my Illinois country home.

Cruising McMinnville

Grand-daughter’s 1985 RX-7 Mazda cruising downtown McMinnville
Grand-daughter’s 1985 RX-7 Mazda cruising

Ah

Tonight

In my mind

And in my heart

I was young again

I visited the past

Rode down memory lane

Remembered the days of old

While standing on the streets of now

Reverse Nonet

Tonight our hometown had a classic car show and cruise, and I had the pleasure of not only watching all those beautiful cars that I remember from my past drive around,

but also had the opportunity to ride in one!

I began driving in 1960 and I was blessed to have owned many of those cars that are now called “classic”. (And I wish I still had some of them now!😊)

But it was such fun to not only see them all cruising around but to also be able to do so with my 18 year old grand-daughter who owns a 1985 RX-7.

Fun night! Great old and new memories!

YESTERDAYS

Pieces of Yesterday, puzzle pieces,

Years, Tears, and Fears

Evaporated and gone.

Seasons and Reasons in

Time have passed on.

Each moment now spent

Reliving them is pointless.

Days of old are done,

All just memories of the Past.

Yearning won’t bring them back.

Seek today and live!
