Music to my ears

Baseball spikes on concrete.

"Good morning, daddy."

Walking around the house when everyone in my family is asleep, and hearing them breathe.

"Mr. Burks, you've been upgraded."

The two short whistle bursts followed by the third to signal the end of a soccer game. Or a season.

"Pops, I just got a new job."

"Your bill has been taken care of by the manager."

Noble muttering the f word when he's two down.

The NDCBF choir.

"I accept your apology, and I'm sorry, too."

The roars at Augusta.

The first sizzle of bone-in ribeyes.

Suite Judy Blue Eyes.

"Herschel's cutting left, he's gonna go."

That Coke pop-top in the morning.

The ATM spitting out money.

"I love you."

"Ladies and gentlemen, we have begun our descent."


A green pinecone hitting the ground with a solid thud.

"Goodnight, Dick."
