Yeah. The ones that sell Michelob Ultra.

Check out the Michelob Ultra website:http://www.michelobultra.com/Default.aspx

It's practically health food.

What a great thread! Hdjohn, Hawk14 - best wishes for your little ones.

Some things from my list:

Walking on fresh morning grass
Walking on the beach
A big gulp of coconut water after a good workout
The smell of an old book
A kick-ass song on the way to work
Finishing homework and house cleaning before noon on a Saturday

Great thread.

Tasting the salt in the hollow of my lady's neck.
Tickling my kids and their giggles.
My dog's welcoming jump for joy as I return home, every time.

Day at the range with my son and grandsons and teaching them how to put it in the black from over 500 yard out.

The gleam in her eyes when she looks at me ,The smile on her face and the sound of the laughter of my child bride of 43yrs life dose not get any better than that.

Lucky for me it is banned in all the bars in our fair state

Just a little factoid; my city was the first to ban smoking in bars

But I welcome you to smoke your American Spirits 50' outside any bar.

Riding through the mountain roads in the Fall when it's cool and the leaves are swirling around you...

The feeling you get when your riding the motorcycle when it's still dark and cold...just as the sun breaks the horizon and warms your face. If it happens while passing a bread factory, turn around and go home. Your day can only get worse.

Getting to the football field after a long day at work and seeing kids give it their all thru conditioning drills and running plays and being called "coach" by the kids. Second favorite title after 'dad' of the titles I've held.

And I will!

My small pleasure will be finding that bar that still allows it.
Off topic but I cannot stand smoke in eating establishments. I agree that is gross.

But so many good dive bars have been ruined by the smoking ban. Previously silly uppity folks wouldn't go in because they didn't want to "smell like smoke" but they wanted to go in because the bars were "cool" So now they can come in, and they have ruined them. They are no longer cool, they're just places where anyone will go.

It totally sucks. Smoking was the one thing keeping douchebags at bay from cool spots.

Not that you're a douchebag. At all. No. I'm being serious. You aren't. Swear!

Similarly standing in formation when freezing fucking cold in basic and feeling the sun come up and start to warm your back.

And watching "What's Eating Gilbert Grape" with my girlfriend this weekend and her remarking on how just 20 years ago the Mother in that movie was ridiculed and house ridden for being fat, and when she went outside the whole town gathered to point and laugh at her and saying "but she looks like most Americans now"

Exactly darling. Exactly. Now put down that sandwich, you're breaking 125.

The "Snake Pit" up in Happy Camp allows smoking. Granted it's a bit off the beaten path and you run the risk of being shanked by a drunken Native American when you're there...but they allow smoking.

Driving my Jeep with the top down on a back country dirt road in the middle of a full moon-lit night with lights off. Where I live, it might as well be daytime outside...

NY style thin crust pizza from a stone brick oven, no toppings other than cheese and grease dripping from it.

The slice MUST be folded and the grease MUST run down your wrist.

Listening to the loons calling on a lake in the north woods on a cool summer evening.

Having a glass of wine, listening to some R&B music and cooking Sunday dinner for the family.

Reading a good book.

My 14yo daughter letting one rip on the couch next to me, and reaching up for a high five from me. All the while my wife looks at us in disgust and disbelief.

both of mine are still high on my list despite being from my military days

- changing into a fresh, clean brown t-shirt at the end of a multi-day patrol while waiting for the extract bird

- Being in some dry place outside wearing one of the old field jacket liners while it's raining and just watching the rain
