    Being able to walk the dog in the countryside without having to drive first.

    Ditto with running.

    Watching birds at the bird feeder--especially less common ones.

    Hitting the gas after you’ve just filled up.

    A long overdue slash.

    Indeed - we have had 2 woodpeckers in our front garden in the last couple of weeks.

    Winding up telephone scammers claiming to be from BT or "Windows Support". We have variously been a Police Station, a secret Government establishment, and an active murder scene where the investigating officers on site have picked up the phone. ( Our daughter has a variation on this one where she responds as the perpetrator saying "They're all dead, there's so much blood !" ). We have also created an entirely fictitious 3rd son, and we now get scammers asking for him directly, ( but he is always unavailable as he is on active service in the SBS. The caller's often respond to this by saying how proud we must be of him ).

    That's the one I cribbed from.

    I also like the one where the person responding to the call tells the scammer that he has contacted a CIA base, and his location's map coordinates have been marked, and a Reaper drone despatched.

    Winning, at anything. Could be a game of football with a 6 year old. Donít care, enjoy winning.

    A good shot in golf

    Getting off a plane and feeling the heat of a tropical climate

    Opening a jar that someone else struggled and failed to open

    Falling asleep with my dogs

    Starting a fire (safely of course)

    Picking the fastest moving lane in a traffic jam

    Pressure washing something very dirty

    TÓts
