    Things That Make You Smile Part 1

    While I enjoy reading the "Things That Drive You Crazy" threads, let's get positive for a change. What are some of the things in life that you love? What makes you tick? I'll start with a few...

    A sunrise.

    Front porch swings.

    A good conversation with a friend.

    Live bluegrass/country music.

    Reds baseball on a Sunday afternoon.

    A big breakfast with the morning paper.

    A bike ride.

    Views from Mt. Adams.

    Being swallowed by a good book on a park bench.

    A sunset.
    "In our sundown perambulations of late, through the outer parts of Brooklyn, we have observed several parties of youngsters playing 'base', a certain game of ball. Let us go forth awhile, and get better air in our lungs. Let us leave our close rooms, the game of ball is glorious"
    -Walt Whitman

    I don't think a requirement of employment should be that you can never offend people. It's high time folks deal with being offended. It's another example of how we're becoming a bunch of wimps. - Person offended by NFL players not standing for national anthem.

    Picturing my Mom out on the end of the dock at camp with a bass on the end of her line and the look of delight and surprise on her face.

    Putting 5.56 ammo through paper at 100 yards...consistantly in small groups.

    My dog always being happy to see me. No matter how miserable of a person I've been that day.

    Warm spring days that lead into cool spring nights where you can sleep with the windows open.

    Any day at the stadium with my Father.

    Working hard around the house all day then stepping back and seeing how nice the house looks at the end of the day.

    a super volcano of ridonkulous suckitude.

    I simply don't have access to a "cares about RBI" place in my psyche. There is a "mildly curious about OBI%" alcove just before the acid filled lake guarded by robot snipers with lasers which leads to the "cares about RBI" antechamber though. - Nate

    Getting home after being on the road for a few days and my wife is happy to see me.

    A win by any of my favorite teams: Reds, Bengals, Ohio State, Xavier, Blues

    A loss by the Steelers, Yankees, Braves, and 49ers

    Animals, especially little ones

    Rural driving. Nothing beats about 600-700 miles of rural interstate on a sunny day, especially in a scenic part of the country.
