I think doob is short for doobie, given the "well shared" in his reference. Also known as herb rolled into a joint.

I always wondered what those cub scouts did around the campfire!

Lots that have already been mentioned, plus oil paints & turpentine; the leaves of tomato plants; night-blooming jasmine through the bedroom window; orange blossoms; marigolds; his perspiration on the collars of my late husband's white shirts; his aftershave.

tomato plants, YES! how could i have forgotten tomato plants! there are probably many others, too. and to think that at one time when was contemplating which sense of smell of the five i would give up if i had to choose, i think i gave up smell on the basis that it was the minor sense compared to the others. there is no "minor" sense. most of our significant memories, and therefore emotions, are tied up with our remembered smells and how we feel about them and the people/places/times they evoke....

oof, tomato plants make my skin crawl, almost literally.

i love to grow them, but whenever i weed in the garden around the tomatoes my skin freaks out. i'm allergic to something on the leaves and stems. for several hours afterwards i look like i was a goalie for the dart team.

and lol, aunt bea. that's one line i've never aproached, let alone cross.
my son has never seen me so much as smoke a cigar, and i would never smoke anything, even camping, around cub scouts. it sets an example that can't be undone.
i've seen scout leaders share "scoutmaster tea" (usually iced tea or bug juice spiked with vodka) around the campfire after the kids were asleep in their tents. i won't even participate in that.

Bug juice. I haven't heard that name for KoolAid in years (decades). Brings back memories of Girl Sprout camp in California and Y camp in New York.
