1. Welcome to TalkBass 2014! If you're new here, we just went through a major site upgrade. Please post all concerns and bugs to the Forum Usage Issues forum. We will be monitoring that forum. Thank you for all of your feedback.

    The TalkBass iphone/android app is NOT WORKING currently. We're working on it. Tapatalk IS working, so if you need to use an app, use Tapatalk. Try using your browser though - TalkBass is now 100% responsive to your phone/tablet screen size ;)

    Please read the TalkBass 2014 FAQ for lots of great info on the new software.

What do you look forward to every...

    Daily: "good mornin Dad / Hon, good night Dad / Hon", and everything in between that gives it all substance.

    Weekly: the paycheck that affords me the opportunity to do stuff and acts as a reminder that I am lucky to have a job in these trying times.

    Monthly: lately this suggests at least one gig opportunity and the chance to write and perform amongst musical people I admire.

    Yearly: That one day that suggests a fresh start / reset...otherwise, nothing that I should be waiting a year to immerse in.

    Daily: Volleyball. It's what keeps me hustling through my busy day.
    Weekly: Lately, the Walking Dead on AMC. However, depending on how things are going, the answer could be "my weekly paycheck" or "the weekend."
    Monthly: I'm not quite up to an Amazon order per month, but it's closer to that than annually, so I'll put it here.
    Annually: I'm lame, but probably verifying that something long term is doing what it should be, like paying down my student loans or building up my retirement accounts.

    Day: My kids. There's nothing better than a big hug from your little girl. Nothing. And being done with my homework. I have homework pretty much every day.

    Week: Kicking back with my wife at least one night. She's my favorite person to just hang out with. She's nuts like me so that helps.

    Month: I try to sneak in a long solo hike (at least several miles) once a month. Nothing brings your mind back into focus like a walk in the woods.

    Year: I'm big on goals. So I like to look back and see how many of them I made it through each year. So, for the year, it's more looking back than forward. But I also like to make a list of new ones and adjust the old ones looking forward.

    Great thread!

    Day: My Monday night house gig at Paddy's Pub in Ferney, France.

    Week: The Friday night drive to the farm in Burgundy. Get there and light the fire. Open a bottle of local red. Chill out. Let the dog run free on the property. Saturday morning, walk over to the farmer next door for a coffee before the local boulangerie (bakery) truck shows up at 09:10am to deliver warm bagettes and croissants. Buy a dozen fresh eggs from the neighbor.

    Singing, in the car, with daughter, on the way to school. We sing to Frank & Dean & Sammy. We sing to Elvis, Johnny Cash, The Who, The Stones, George Strait, and many others. We have a lot of fun.

    Daily: Getting home after a long hard day at a job I don't like.

    Weekly: The weekend. Jamming with friends, drinking a few beers, spending time at home with the family.

    Monthly: ? Nothing really jumps to mind.

    Yearly: This kinda changes with the seasons. In June I still sometimes go up north for a long weekend and get drunk in the woods with 300 of my closest friends. In late winter/early spring there may be a trip to the Caribbean, Next fall it looks like another conference in D.C. That means I get to drink beer with you guys again!

    I find the electric poles to be incredibly misplaced. Middle of the sidewalk, seriously?
