  4. Oh this was lovely to read! You've written much of my list for me. Well...maybe with the exception of 1970's disco and the comedy channel!
    I love old fashioned country things, handwork, large extended families and friends who "just drop by".
    I will add stormy days, margaritas, R&B music, Motown and well worn jeans.
