These are a Few of My Favorite Things


1. The glimpse of heaven produced when hundreds of well-trained voices sing praises to God.

2. The sound emanating from the pipes on my former Dodge Ram when cranking up.

3. Mashed potatoes.

4. The smell of new tires. (Weird, ain't I?)

5. That sweet NASCAR feeling you get when you stomp the gas and pass a car on Hwy. 281.

6. Apple-cinnamon anything.

7. Good kids. Whether they're mine or someone else's, it's pure joy to be around respectful, mannerly, clean-cut kids.

8. Thanksgiving. (Hasn't this surpassed Christmas due to the very nature of the holiday and the lack of commercialization?)

9. Drums. I dig drums, man. They're the most, man.

10. The way a flannel shirt feels the first time you wear it. But not the second time, because by then it has shrunk one full size.

You like drums???? I also enjoyed walking into the garage to smell the rubber of my new tires this week.

You forgot to mention sleeping late. Who doesn't like to wake up w/o an alarm clock?

Also, what about when Maddie runs to you and hugs your neck? I know that would be my favorite feeling.

Yeah, I put Maddie right up there with the tire smell and apple crisp.

Just kidding. Give me a grandkid any day.
