There's an ad on TV for some fabric softener, about which they brag... "it makes your clothes smell fresh for WEEKS!"  That seems dubious and kind of creepy.

When my mother had her antique shop/second-hand store there was an older, kind of heavy woman who used to come in about 15 minutes before we closed. In the summer, the sun was setting directly on the front porch and into the shop, making it quite HOT. And this woman would come in wearing her black rayon dress and bolero-style jacket (NEVER saw her EVER wear anything else!)...and she REEKED of lavender perfume. It rose off her in waves, I swear. I believe she is one of the reasons that some of my family members can't stand lavender-scented anything! Her odor was not 'fresh' smelling. I believe the copious lavender was in lieu of a BATH +/or laundering.

This is known as a (insert nearest supposedly inbred town/city) wash. 😂🤣

I really never cared for the scent of lavender. I disliked walking down store aisles if there were stocks of lavender candles, potpourris, wreathes, etc. It usually caused me headaches.

Wonder if that effect is something like that of people who either like cilantro or not. Causes a distinct adverse response. I DO NOT like cilantro.

I can't stand all the cinnamon brooms and all the 'pumpkin spice' crap around this time of year! That makes ME sneeze and gives me a headache. A little goes a LONG way, IMHO.

I also can't stand the odor of burning sage. (Been around some new-age sage- burners, cleansing the rooms, doncha know.)

I wake up freq at nite and I'll change TV channels often. Caught the old soap 'DARK SHADOWS' in black & white. Oh, I so loved that soap from the 1960s. I still have my old Barnabas Collins ring. /// Also saw a marathon of old 1949 Lone Ranger, and Superman shows. I've found 'I Love Lucy' which I love!!!!

I wish they would start replaying things like Dobie Gillis, The Real McCoys, Our Miss Brooks, Mr. Peepers (Wally Cox).....

stars - I know you're only a couple years older than me. I recognize those shows but don't recall watching them too often. You forgot 'My Little Margie'.

Yes, 'Margie' had that show, and (earlier? later?) was The Gail Storm Show. 

Do you remember 'December Bride'? And one of my VERY faves...."Topper", with Leo G. Carroll? And 'The Cisco Kid'?

Leo G Carroll was the Director of the Spy Agency on Man from UNCLE. Old timey from 1960s with David Mc Callum & Robt Vaughn (?).

'Cisco Kid was a friend of mine' is a line from some song. Guy wore a BIG sombrero.

Do you have cable or satellite television access?

Just basic cable - no extra anything. Trouble is I'll find a program but won't remember when or what channel. I'm semi-asleep and I'm not writing things down.
