Top 10 Smells

A world without smell would be as sterile as a world without sound. Good smells add to some of life’s best pleasures. Following are my top ten:

10. Freshly cut grass

09. Fresh sheets beneath warm blankets on a cold night

08. Coffee brewing mixed with bacon frying

07. Flowers in the spring, especially honeysuckles

06. Leather—coats, chaps, vests—could come mingled with horse smells

05. Meat cooking over mesquite coals, hamburgers or brisket

04. The Fair Midway—cotton candy and corndogs

03. New lumber, especially cedar

02. Rain on a hot, summer day

01. Pine trees, especially in the mountains, especially after a rain

 So what’s on your list?
