Seeing you kid smile or laugh?
A good cup of coffee?

Guilty as charged!  guilty  A 100g bar has often lasted less than 10 minutes after me opening it. Actually, I'm tempted right now.

My golden Retriever Lily.
The first cup of coffee in the morning.
Being first into bed after the sheets and all have been changed and newly laundered.
Seeing an old couple shopping together and seeing that they still love each.
The way the air smells after a Summer rain.
Finding what I want on sale.

Definetly agree there TUN. Nicer then dealing with boneheads in city traffic.

*Driving in Yosemite National Park. The colour of its energy is just amazing!
*People who use their turn signals
*Composing music
*The feeling of acceleration. I get a HUGE grin across my face when driving a very torquey car, or the first part of take off when you get pushed back in your seat.
*The Ocean. It can calm me down in a heartbeat if Im feeling stressed out at all. A nice drive along the beach, or go and sit by the beach.

People who say "hello" at the beginning of a transaction. Simple politeness!

The feeling you get when you finish your last exam for the semester.

Getting into a comfy bed when you're really worn out (often coming about 8 hours after finishing last Exam..)

Going somewhere new, or somewhere you really enjoy, expecially if you've flown to get there.

Takeoff - I only travel by plane every few months so I always look forward to it.

Visiting Wet'n'Wild on the Gold Coast. This usually follows all previous pleasures.

Rain. At the moment It's raining outside for the first time in about three months and I'm loving it.

Cheers,
OzGuy

Sitting in my favourite Havana cafe (Dulceria Dona Teresa) on Calle Obispo and having a nice cold cerveza (beer), smoking a fabulous Cuban cigar, and talking with my friends.

Now that's heaven.
