When my wife and son "blow up" my phone with text messages wanting to check on me after I have done something they feel is "dangerous".

My elderly cat still greeting me at the door after 18 years of traveling the world with me.

Waking up with my grandson on the mornings after he sleeps over at my house. He is always in his best mood when he first wakes up...about 20 minutes of nothing but giggles, hugs and "I love you grandpa's". Then...we go get our morning coffee (his is chocolate milk...but don't tell him that!!).

Driving down the road with the windows down and smelling fresh cut hay laying down in the field. Or honeysuckle, I do love honeysuckle.

Walking up to the front door at one of my kids homes, and hearing from behind the door, Saba! Saba! Saba! from any number of grandkids, in barely controllable excitement.

The first LONG pull off of an ice cold Tall Boy Budweiser when I get done mowing on a hot day. I remember retrieving them from the cooler for my old man at Ft. Rucker as a kid. He had the same look on his face that I get on mine....

Saturday afternoon, after yard work is done, sitting on my back deck with a cold beer while grilling whatever I've dreamed up for dinner that night.

ETA: Damn, posted the same time as JoeArmyNCO....looks like we had the same thought.

Already been said.... But there is nothing better in the world than seeing my grandchildren come running up to me squealing "Grandpa!" Music to my ears, so much so, I'm grinning ear to ear just typing this.

Also agree with an ice cold beer after a good lawn mowing and the hip thing and the special look you get from the woman you love.

Hearing my daughters laugh.

From my younger days, I'd have to add head high perfect lefts at an uncrowded break.

Teamwork that raises the individual work ethic, trusts and beliefs of what the Team can accomplish, and it happens.

From my younger days too: being the first to break powder after ski patrol opens up the trails.

And a perfect roll out in racquetball.

Drive home after work, cranky as can be, open the car door and ALL I hear is;
Poppy, Poppy, Poppy!
Somehow, I forget that I'm cranky; good medicine.

Alfalfa.

The sun, the breeze, it doesn't even have to be a particularly warm day.

My girls still believing that I am the source of all things right with the world. They are only 7 so I know I have a limited amount of time to revel in that.

Listening to my self-taught, 14-year-old son lay down a perfect version of Thunderstruck on his Strat.

The pleasure of buying that guitar for his birthday.

Yep. That is my highlight of the day. Getting up very early, the quietness of the morning, brewing and drinking fresh coffee, and listening to the news on the radio while planning the day.
