Oh, yeah. Nearly everywhere--draft and bottles. And, when I was in Asheville last month--I found it in CANS! Very exciting, because we are always looking for good beer not in bottles for taking on the boat. After picking up busted glass with my feet, I try to keep to the cans aboard. Those Shiner Box o' Blondes (thanks, Texans) are pretty tasty, too.

Doing something to make DW smile.

A long ride through a twisty road with no traffic on a good-running motorcycle.

Hot cheese and pepperoni slices.

If I say smoking a cigarette....would this post be censured and wiped out and me thrown out of this forum on my a*s? That would be for me quasi-happiness this moment

Happiness is...a good night's sleep, a walk anywhere with my dog, a long chat with a friend, a bike ride on a scenic trail, a chunk of warm fresh bread

Listening to your kids ask you really good questions and seeing them dig down and do something hard the right way.

Spending my time on being alive, with the people I love instead of spending my money on stuff that will never love me back.
