    The aroma of the Carnegie Deli at 2 a.m. on a cold winter night.

    Old baseball players who tell funny stories that are also accurate.

    Buying books at The Strand book store, and paying a little extra to have them shipped home.

    The ballpark before the gates open.

    Old Steve and Garry radio shows.

    The Dick Van Dyke show.

    Baseball card stores that have a "junk" box of 5/$1 cards that include some from the '60s.

    ESPN SEC football on Saturday evenings - it's even better if you are coming back from another game, flip on the screen and have the replay starting up at 10 p.m. (1 a.m. Eastern) and you don't know the score.

    Diet Coke

    long drives on desolate roads

    finishing one book and starting another.

    Cotton candy

    spring days at Keeneland

    nights on the couch, laughing and watching movies

    slow jams

    Curling up in a ball under an electric blanket

    Reality TV




    Air-popped popcorn

    Inside jokes

    People who have known me long enough to know too much, but love me anyway

    People who haven't known me long, but still have dirt and like me anyway.



    My mom

    Good Mexican food

    A frosty mason jar full of my favorite beer

    Going back to the freezer and getting another mason jar.......

    Watching my son grow up

    The sound of a perfectly struck golf shot on a still day


    The Rocky Mountains
  12. Comic books (more specifically DC's "Wednesday Comics" a 12-week-run of a few stories done on newsprint, oversized along with anything done by Darwyn Cooke)

    Discovering new but old post-punk pop like Cannonball Jane, Rocketship and Talulah Gosh

    Listening to American Forces Radio on 873 AM in Germany and hearing the PSAs and news (reminds of home and my childhood spent as an Army brat)

    Watching SEC football in the fall.

    Hearing my 4-year-old son walk up to me and say: "Hey, my Dad!"

    Hearing my 2-year-old daughter tell me when I get home from work "Hi, Daaadee!"

    Walking around a new city and finding a great used record shop.

    Taking the 06:14 a.m. morning Sprinter between Frankfurt and Berlin. Almost always empty and the free coffee is good.
