Without a doubt the smell of fresh sawdust or hot pine trees. HOME.

When I think of Huey Lewis, I think of Power of Love, Back to the Future, and the very short corduroy OP shorts I wore as a kid.

I have quite a few "ratatouille" moments.

Food: Grilled cheese and Campbell's Bean and Bacon soup reminds me of those nights Mom wasn't home to cook so Dad gave it his best effort.

Movie: E.T. not only because I loved it but it scared the heck out of me.

Image: Every time I see a small river cutting through a canyon it brings me back to my childhood.

Reflecting on these have been a fun exercise and bringing them up as conversational piece with friends and family has sparked some fun chats and debates!

The album "Sports" by Huey Lewis and the News, It was what played on a loop during road trips when I was a kid. And it was apparently the only cassette tape my parents owned!
