*eat a raspberry I'm transported back to summer, even if it's 40 below. And not just any summer, a mythical perfect summer.

*am around a body of water, I become more creative.

*smell Jack Daniels, I am instantly queasy. This is due to an incident before I was of legal drinking age, so it serves me right.

*hear the song Should Have Been a Cowboy I think of when my heartdog Riley was just a puppy and had not quite 13 more years with me. We were waiting in the car for my husband to come out of the credit union, the song came on, and I changed it to Should Have Been a Sheepdog.

*see Urban Cowboy, My Cousin Vinny, a Yorkie, or laugh in a certain familiar way, I think of my mom.

*see certain actors or actresses, I think of the soaps they were on a trillion years ago. I'm thinking of you, Demi!

*see other actors or actresses, I think of Buffy or another Whedon show. I'm thinking of you, Nathan Fillion. (Although he was also on One Life To Live...)

*see, read, or hear about a frog, I think of my friend Ronda.

*see a quilt, I think about my friend Jeanna.

*smell the scent that comes with spring, I become optimistic.

You?  :)

Whenever I:

hear a train whistle I'm transported back to my childhood bedroom, listening to the trains at night.  I've always lived where I could hear train whistles.  Not as easy here, overcast days are best.

* let my toast get cold and dry, I think of my mother. {This was the way she liked hers}
* hear a voice in the crowd call "mom!", my head whips around even though one of my kids is in his thirties and the other in his fifties
*I think about the years I lived in the South, I remember that the question I got asked the most was "You're not from round here, are you..." {I have an English accent.}
* I eat ice cream, I remember Italian gelato.

Whenever I look at my 3 cats, I remember waking up at 3 am to bottle feed each of them :)
We have three little ones that we hand raised after their mamma kitty was ran over. Lucky that farm3000 knew where the mamma kitty had hid them in the barn. They were just a few days old and now they are all grown up and hanging from my curtains................................ They really have a plush life going from barn cats to housecats.
