Have you ever been in the middle of a busy day and all of a sudden you run across a certain baked good, candy, flower or an object catches your attention and you are sent right back to your childhood?
This week capture what takes you back to moments past and reminisce a little.
I thought I would reminisce a little about my time in the Army, 1991-2001. Sally was talking about a certain smell, a certain sound, a certain thought that brings back memories and I have those all the time about my time in the Army. I know that these are supposed to be pics from this week and not from over 12-16 years ago, but I thought I would share a little of my time in the Army.

I think overall I miss the smells of the military. There is a distinct smell, especially of the guys - sorry civilian guys I do miss the smell of Army guys :) The smell of starch uniforms in the sun, the smell of kiwi on the boots and just the smell of a guy with the combination of kiwi and starched uniform - YUM!
Though I have to say the one thing I don't miss - not taking a shower for two weeks! I seriously can't do that now - I need me my shower at least once a day!
Thanks for letting me reminisce a little of my time in the Army. Please head over to The Studio Sublime and see what everyone else reminisced about this week.
