You think you know where I’m going with this, but it’s actually not a complaint. A lot of places have their own smell. I’ve driven through towns in Georgia that smell like peaches. Gary, Indiana smells like what I can only descibe as “burning rubber french fries” – a term I invented as a kid, and I haven’t been able to think of a suitable replacement description that doesn’t involve a 4-letter word. A place in Idaho I visited one time smelled like mint – there was a mint field nearby…
In the town where I live, we have a number of factories. You might think because of this, our noses would meet the same fate every morning as the poor residents of Gary Indiana, but fortunately for us, one of our largest factories manufactures CANDY! So, our town literally smells like candy almost every day. Chocolate some days, unidentified sweetness on the others… it is wonderful and really puts a spring in your step! Ahh, now there’s a post that’s short and sweet! 😉

Gary Indiana Gary Indiana Gary Indiana let me say it once again. Home of the Jackson 5 (for better or for worse).
Gary smells worse than any town I’ve been to!
