I'm so glad you asked that question, Jespah. I was too embarrased to admit my ignorance.

Kissing the nape of a baby's neck.
The scent of Dys.
Listening to Pink Floyd while driving toward a New Mexico sunset.
Sally and Dante in bed with us.
Assam tea.
Maker's Mark bourbon.
Champagne
Offbeat, intelligent friends.
Smiles or sighs between strangers whle looking at a beautiful scene.
Sharing the beauty of nature with someone you love.
My older son's girlfriend, hoping she will someday be my daughter-in-law.

It's a salami, of hungarian origin, but a company in Australia, Don Smallgoods, makes the ultimate version of it - makes chocolate taste like sand in comparison. Csabai (pronounced chub-eye) hhmmmmmmmmmmmm.

They came to me in this order

1. The human brain
2. The sense of touch
3. A starry night (and the human brain wandering)
4. My children
5. The capacity of laughter (and laughing and laughing)
6. The sound of a fallen leaf being crunched under my shoe.
7. The Olympic Games (and the Football World Cup & MLB)
8. Water, orange juice.
9. The internet
10. My wife's (& even better, my mother-in-law's) cooking.

Thanks Noddy, Osso, and boomer. Didn't mean to turn this into a happy birthday thread for me. I'm greatly looking forward to my birthday wish (I take these things very seriously), and I've been thinking about it for a few days. That's why it popped into my head. If Jespah had posted this thread in February, I would most likely have had a different tenth choice.

Hippity happy boithday, 'Boita!

Didja know that today is also Latvian Independence Day? Fact. Nov. 18, 1918, the Letts told Lenin they weren't gonna be no part of no Soviet Union, having shaken off the shackles of the Tsar. I'm thankful for that, too.

Hiya Andy, Thanks for the birthday wishes. I had no idea that November 18 was Latvian Independence Day. My father's family came from Latvia, but they got here before 1918. Maybe that's why it never came up. My Grandpa came here to get away from the tsar. Thanks for the info. I'm grateful my grandfather got away from the tsar too.
