That inner, light and free feeling of enthusiasm & eagerness when you know you are going to be there soon to renew old memories, ie. "Tony's Spaghetti House", Acme Oyster House, walking along the Waterfront, smells, ie. perfume, "Blue Blossom" and umm, begnets, oyster shells on the curb (phew); noises, the bells at St. Louis Cathedral, and the clip clop of horse's hooves pulling buggies ,sirens, or "I bet I can tell you where you got yo shoes!", sights (you name it) .
I got the New Orleans tickle, cause I'm heading down there tomorrow for French fun, fantasy, frolic, n'food!
