Sometimes just one word can cause our mind to venture way back into it’s archives and bring out a memory or a feeling from the past. As you read each of the words in today’s prompt, what comes to mind? For example if I read or hear the word Mustang….you might think of a car, or a horse or a football team……the word association you have is unique to your memories and experience:
Dad used to take me to Joe’s Mustang to buy crickets for fishing. The gas station had a huge rust colored horse that looked as if it were rearing up and out of the sign. I looked forward to the can of Country Time Lemonade Dad would buy me as a special treat. I remember the smell of gasoline and motor oil mixed with the pungent smell of catfish bait.
