What makes you happiest in life?

I like stress free days in the sun. Sitting by the lake. Eating a sandwich and drinking a grape NEHI.

There are a few other things but this is a "family" forum.

Lullaby Of Foo

Now I lay me down to sleep
Keep my bike safe from the bicycle thief
Keep my tootsies toasty warm
keep my carbon from any harm

Good Night Road Bike
Good Night Moutain Bike
Good night all you Foosters
And good night Moon

In the quiet calm of night, taking Mike for a run, smells of exotic cookery emanating from varied homes. What stories are out there? Each with its path through this world, and how special I am to cross paths with just a few.

Sitting out on the porch during a sunset, nice thick medium rare porterhouse on my plate with some garlic/cheese mashed potatoes...and a glass of bourbon.

Even better if someone else is sharing this sunset with their own plate and glass.

Things that make me happy:
A nice bike ride...can be a hammer fest or a cruise, depends on the mood.
A nice cold soda after a major hammerfest.
Hearing a great song on the radio that I have not heard in a long time.
Communicating with freinds and finding out something nice/pleasant is going on in their world.
The sounds that can only be heard when you are deep in the woods at 3:00 am.
The smell after a spring time rain.

There's more.....but not going to take the time to type all of it....to sum it up..its all the simple things in life.

When it is about 65-70F outside, slight breeze, the air is crisp. Driving my car around at that time, with the windows down, hear nothing but the engine purring, wind whistling by my ears, knowing the fact that everything is in working order. Then having a great bike ride later, hearing nothing but the tires against the pavement, and the wind howling by my ears, as i increase speed.

Ultimate Frisbee.

Waking up next to the ladyfriend.

A solitary bike ride home with a great tail wind, thru a snow storm.

Watching timmyQ being Emo (sorry, couldn't resist)

Knowing that in this complicated world, all has a place and everything works in synch with everything else to form life as we experience it and as which we are. Ultimately there is agape which envelops it as a whole.

Seeing my boys happy makes me happy. Last night seeing the smile on Wades face as he earned his first Cub Scout badge was incredible. I am still smiling about it today.

My beautiful little princess.
From seeing her beautiful face as she was born to watching her on her sports days.
From riding our bikes together by the river, to jumping onto stepping stones across the river.
From saying ohayo in the morning to oyasumi nassai in the evening.
And finally, telling her everynight how much she means to me, kissing her good night, and saying "I love you, sweet dreams my little pricess"

Riding a bike anywhere, and spending time with my friend Brandy.

She doesn't know it yet, but she's getting a new bike real soon.

Ha.

A girl showed me her scars once, I told her she wasn't serious and it was obviously a cry for attention, because they went across the veins not with it.

Don't think she was expecting that as a response.

I'd consider my current mood: Blues

The music is better, and no one seems to make fun of B.B. King when he says that the thrill is gone, oddly though i'm emo for saying. I really want to figure this one out.
