The 'Circle of Life' has circled

My dad has always chewed Copenhagen snuff for as long as I can remember and growing up I always wanted to try it. Finally, he let me; told me not to swallow it and...I swallowed it which then resulted in my puking my guts out.

Yesterday Bug tried some of Grandpa's "candy" (Grandpa's terminology) which resulted in his puking as well. It brought back all sorts of fun and "fun" memories from when I was a kid and so that it was kind of nice.

Jellybean & Bug also lost boots in the muck and the melting snow at Pa's which once again brought floods of memories of getting stuck at the farm and needing Grandpa's assistance to get out. The great fun of growing up...ah the circle keeps on circling...

oh my gosh.. up until a few years ago I had an empty snuff box of my dad's; he has been dead for over 20 years now... I would open that can and take a long sniff ( I also had a taste when I was a kid ) ... I love the smell of snuff and I wish I hadn't thrown the box away now.. But just reading about it has brought me back some memories so Thank you for writing about it.
