Things I Like

Swimming with my kids Thin crust pizza Fresh cut flowers in the house My son’s love of CAT trucks A room with a big bookcase Smell of a hardware store Tree branches swaying in the wind Walking along big boats in a marina A dip in a pool before breakfast Standing on the Inlet jetty Squirrels chasing each other around a tree

Little League baseball games Celebrating my kids’ birthdays People who proudly wear cowboy hats Women telling me how they were once Resorter cover girlsGoing to a concert at Springfest The dad on ‘Modern Family’ Old shorts that don’t look it Making chocolate milk at home Finding no bills in the mailbox Watching a squirrel work a nut Kids chasing after each other
