I disagree- that's an epic rush- especially if it's a game winner...

Seeing the faces of my friends and family when I try out a new recipe that hit the 10 ring.

My son dropping everything and running to me saying "Daddy" when I pick him up from school.

The wife reaching over in the middle of the night to start round two.

The feel under your thumb of a perfectly medium rare steak.

This won't happen for a few weeks, but the smell of churned up dirt from football cleats. That always puts a smile on my face.

That time IS limited........my girls are 9 and 11. As of about three months ago I'm no longer awesome. Now, apparently, I'm just embarrassing and "sooooo 1990's", as they look at me with pity and a touch of exasperation.

That moment when you realize that everything is quiet around you, you have nothing that has to get done right freaking now, no one has said or done anything stupid in the last few minutes and a calm, peaceful feeling comes over you even if for only a few minutes.

But it never last long so enjoy it when it does happen.

Seeing my 8 year old special needs granddaughter, after 158 transfusions and 25 operations, swim on her own in our new pool.

Remembering the sound of my Dad's laughter after a ripper of a joke.

Another wish for continued success.

Receiving love from your kids is one life's greatest pleasures.

Along these lines; taking a ride with my oldest son on some of the same trails I rode with my dad 30+ years ago.

My kids and I are coming back to the states next week to visit my dad in Sun Valley, Idaho, and sitting in his backyard having coffee as the sun comes up is one of the things I'm most looking forward to.

Sounds of my wife and kids laughing,
Smell of coffee and bacon
smell of gun powder
Shooting IDPA, being only 20 points down for 5 stages and 0(NT), 0(PE) and 0(FN)



Ice cold beer :)

Riding my bike, surfing, trail running, or working out at anytime during an awesome day when everyone else is working

And having coffee with a Ranger buddy at 0800 with nothing else to do that day except the above.

Competent people who can stay on topic during a meeting and not go off on tangent.
