The theme for Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge this week is Sense of Smelling. The senses of smell and taste often are associated with each other. Let’s nose around in our archives or sniff out new photos that are related to the sense of Smelling. Be creative and have fun.

The slides are all stamped May 1971, and as I mentioned in my earlier post it still fascinates me how much Sacramento’s airport has grown and changed over the past few decades. This must have been one of my first visits to the fairly new Sacramento Metropolitan Airport (as it was […]
