My moms been teaching my wife and children how to make raspberry jam yesterday and today. My oldest daughter said yesterday ‘it smells like summer in the kitchen’, just as the first batch of jam was starting to boil....smells remembered..
mothballs at Mamaw's house
Didn't see a lot of the Pop's parents (they both died before I was 9)
Smells I recall though..
Grapes, wine barrels, pessgetti sauce and fresh baked bread .
but I couldn't understand a word my Grandmother spoke (she didn't speak english)
..and only about 1/2 of my Grandfather's speak who did
BUTT....he always gave us a dollar and gave me as much wine as I wanted while down in his wine cellar .(away from my mom)
