The piano. I grew up listening to my mother play it, though sadly I never had the talent myself.

It's difficult to pick just one. Perhaps The Great Gatsby by F. Scott Fitzgerald. It works on many different levels.

I've seen few staged musicals. Buddy (about Buddy Holly) was probably the one I enjoyed most.

Florida winters. (usually pleasant and dry but can span from the 30's to the high 70's (F) within a day or two.)

Sea bream for eating.

Parrot fish (at least I think that's what they are called) for looking at.

I'll plump for George Orwell if only because I read all his books and he's the only author I can say that about.

Gotta be the sheepdog. I'm not very fond of dogs generally but sheepdogs are so silky and friendly and nice :smile:

Give me an old fashioned alley cat any day of the week. The specialized breeds often get too inbred and are prone to health problems. As for color, I've had three charming black and white cats, each very special in his/her own way, so I'm partial to that coloring. (Uh-oh. My ginger cat is glaring at me.)
