    Things that feel good to you

    Nothing like a massage to put me into the twilight zone on my way to falling asleep.

    I also like the fight of a strong fish on the end of my line.

    Flying at blurry speeds down a smooth, flowy trail is up there, too.

    What are some of the things that feel good to you?

    All of what you mentioned plus:
    The touch of a woman.
    A candlelight dinner for two.
    And a good dump.

    Driving down the interstate with my travel trailer, mountain bike and fly rods in tow for an adventure outdoors.

    Coming home, hugs & kisses from the GF and purring kitties in my arms upon arrival.

    A perfect presentation of the fly and watching a nice brown trout take my fly off the surface of a spring creek or a river.

    Filling up the fuel tank on my VW Passat TDI and seeing I got over 800 miles on a tank, and over 55 MPG too on that fillup.

    That I've been blessed with good genes and good health so far in life... though mountain biking has made a lot of parts on me feel achy and closer to being completely worn out. I'd like to be well worn out when I die, so I'm doing a good job of getting there.

    Isn't that stealing from your employer? They are paying you for time to get work done?

    Tongue meet cheek I hope? Can anyone truthfully say they have never daydreamed, or done something other than work while at work? Only this morning I thought about Kylie Minogue while I was on a conference call... does that make me a bad person?

    Yep, you can tell the workers from the slackers. IT is supposed to catch these wack job employees surfing the internet on company time and chop 'em. from the ranks. A little tough love for these softies.

    Brewing and drinking a good cup of coffee in the morning, taking a superb, firm dump, and then finishing off the remaining 2 of the 3 S's in the morning, before 7AM, so I don't waste daylight.

    As opposed to getting coffee grounds in your mouth from your messed up brew batch, having a messy, burning, loose morning dump, cutting yourself while shaving and slipping in the shower and bumping your head?

    Stealing? Not honest? And to hope I lose my job.. Quiet judgmental isn't it, without knowing the back story. Like the saying goes, "Don't Judge a book by it's cover". To keep it short, I don't get to browse the net when ever I want. I had to earn it. Work hard and prove yourself to the management. Then maybe, you might get rewarded with great incentives.

    That rule is horrible.

    I'm with highdelll 100% on this. Your employer is paying you to do a job. Do it and be thankful to have a job.

    Well, you guys have mentioned most of the obvious ones, but one I'd add is having a day, just one, even, with ZERO pain.

    In days gone by, it felt really good to fire five shots with my NRA 'F' Class rifle, and after seeing the first hole in the target, watch it only grow in size by a little more than double. That was kinda cool-feeling.

    That's true. There's damn few jobs to be had in this "rapidly recovering" economy, at least on this side of the Pacific and Indian oceans.

    Walking the dog. He's old, can't run any more and doesn't have too many more walks in him, but about the only activity he still gets to enjoy is sniffing stuff. It gives me great pleasure to provide that solitary pleasure for an old friend who won't be around much longer.

    Man, I can totally relate to that. I had me a big orange tomcat, the smartest cat I or my Vet had ever seen. But when he reached around 17-18 years old, he started showing signs of renal failure. So for the rest of his life, I gave him daily, then twice daily, perfusions of elecrolyte fluids, and injections, and I also did laser treatments on him when his spine started to go. He got better, and the one thing that we both looked forward to was our nightly walk. I'd carry him down a 77-step public stairway, and then he would climb back up. Then I'd carry him up to the top of the hill, and he'd lope back down. The elevation gain /loss each way was around 100'.

    He always stayed close to me, no leash needed. He made that nightly ritual/workout right up to 4 days before he had to go. He was 19. Turned out that aside from renal failure and severe degenerative spine disease, he also had a lung tumor.
