Yes, the smells we remember. This was a delight to read.
I could smell the memories with you. I think my gramma wore the same powder. I love some of the unusual details you included to give the story its very special character. Like this one:
Since she was so well endowed, she hated the string around her neck. She would fold the neck string under and use big diaper pins to secure the apron to the front of her dress. TOO funny!
Roller skating in the basement. How cool! Your grandma's were quite the characters.
Yeah...those wonderful smells live with us forever. Good account of the memories we love to cherish.
