Old Spice

My Uncle Paul died 19 years ago in a pickup accident. I will always miss him so much. One of the many things I miss about him was the way he smelled. I remember that he always used Old Spice aftershave. I love that smell. After his accident I would always buy that kind of deodorant for Jay, Old Spice Original Scent. The other day Casey went to the store to get toothpaste and deodorant. When he came home he had two kinds of deodorant, he asked me to smell them and tell him which one I liked the best. No question about it, I like the Old Spice original. He asked me who it reminded me of. I told him Uncle Paul and Dad. He smiled and said, "yep, it reminds me of Dad too." So I went up stairs and took out Jays deodorant, took off the lid and left it on the counter. Who needs and air freshener? I will just use a stick of deodorant with the lid off to always give me a scent of Jay and Uncle Paul. It might just be a little thing, but I will treasure every little thing that reminds me of them.

That's a great idea. It is amazing how much the little things mean.

I agree with the smell of Old Spice. Gold Canyon has a Cozy Cabin candle that smells exactly the same. I have 2 of them!
