Ok.  Gauntlet accepted.

The smell of a baby's head, and biting their toes off and listening to the giggles.

France.  Paris.  Bordeaux and Burgundian wines.  Champagne.

WW I history.  The battle of Jutland. 

Wondering how soldiers did it, and why, the courage.

Poodles and Ole English Sheepdogs

Folk Music, hard rock guitar gods.

NYC, Hawaii, Alaska, WYO,  CO

Catching a trout on a gin clear small stream, fish on...

Blue skies that hurt your eyes and golden/red aspens.

First snow

Scotch and gin and great beer

Cool evenings after a hot summer

Clear and dry skies after a long rainy/overcast spell

Friends that are real

Meditation and connection with God

Helping friends out

Chocolate

Jazz

OK, not mentioning anything relating to motorcycles. 

The never-ending love of a misfit Chewennie rescue dog.

Coffee in the morning.  Ice cold beer later in the day. 

Waking up before sunrise in the summer, to watch the fog burn off a lake in Alabama.

Good salsa.   

The smell of fresh cut grass.  The smell of bacon and eggs. 

Feel of an old S&W .38 revolver, the trip of the glass smooth trigger, and seeing a 10 in the spotting scope.

Sharp cheese

Old friends.   From 1st grade, that you still know.

Huge trees--that have been there for hundreds of years.

Home-made ice cream.   

Happy ducks.   A parrot that talks to you.   The fact that there are elephants in the world.

I used to work for the circus circumcising the baby elephants. The pay wasn't that great but the  tips were huge.  :grin:

Why do I suddenly hear Julie Andrews singing every time I read the subject line?

Dunno Charlie, you didn't eat the brown acid at Woodstock did ya?
Come to think of it I hear the same thing,  oh well, so much for wayward youth.

I don't know that I have favorites.

But I did like flying my RF5B for 6 years or so (www.rf5b.com). I liked its lines & simplicity--yet, thoughtful design. Being able to shut off the engine, feather the prop and fly indefinitely, or fly just above the trees along the ridges of the Cascades. Even on days with very little lift, I enjoyed running the engine at a low rpm just enough to sustain altitude, then work my way up the face of a cliff or mountain using the scant lift that was there.

My (long gone) '69 European version, 911S Porsche.  (Was a massive purchase in the early 70's of $4200.)

Vintage roadsters.

Vintage engines where you can see many of the moving parts....and ones that are as much art as functional.

Long, sleek, stately wooden yachts.

People who know their craft so well, it's hard to decide if it's a craft or art.

Language that uplifts or teaches you something new.

Morning or late afternoon light.

Moments of unplanned, non-ego-driven kindness.

Tolerance.

Can't say i love elephants. I haven't had enough to do with them. I admire them though. My father had a thing about elephants. When I asked him why he told me of their virtues. Much to admire there.

My favourite things? A number of things popped into my mind.

Sitting round a fire, esp an outside one, with friends and a good port.

Camping and camping gear, especially tents.

Labradors and other good natured dogs.

Lakes rivers mountains and the sea.

A good road trip without time limits on a bike.

Things like this, 


Right down to this


preferably wooden and classic.
