I get teased about it from time to time but......I have a very vivid memory of past events.

April 30, 2024 01:45PM
My Mom told me years ago that she noticed that even as a very young child, I would simply take the time to just closely look around at the situation I was in. I joke and make light of things on here but I have always been a very quiet and observant person. Even Gator games when me and my Brother might be a bit tipsy, I STILL would find moments of self silence to simply take in where I was. The older I get, with the passing of friends and family, such a vivid memory becomes more n more bitter sweet. Funny this is all brought up because just yesterday, as I made spaghetti, the smell of cool air coming from the AC and the smell of the spaghetti took me back to a very vivid memory I have of setting our table as Mom cooked spaghetti. I remember looking out at my Grandfather, who lived across the street, cutting his grass. I remember at that moment, the smell of Dinner and the cold air coming from our window AC that was in our small Dining Room. It sorta bummed me because then, I'd set the table for 5 people. The four in my family and my Grandfather. They are all gone now. Again, memory can be bitter sweet.

LOL With ALLLLLL that said, I have a CRAP memory for studying material. I had people tell me... HOW are you not a Chief yet??? I have a TOUGH time reading and learning material. I have to bust my butt for average results for Promotion Exams. Right here and now, someone could tell me how to cut n paste something and I'll probably forget it in a day or two.......But watching the orange crane that helped replace the sewer line on my street in 1971 seems like yesterday! LOL

  MUSIC too! Whenever I hear a song from the 70s or 80s, that too will take me back.
