7:05 am, he would rev that mofo to about 8000 rpms three times then settle back at about 3/4 throttle.

After that, you were hunting strictly VFR, you dang sure wouldnt be hearing no subtle twig snaps of approaching whitetails after 7:05.



Badass.

The sound of my Dad’s JD 50 working the garden or pulling the wood trailer. He still has it but it doesn’t see much use anymore.

The sounds of his knees cracking going down the hallway past my room about 6 every morning as he got around for work. Now my knees do that!

I miss the sound of the noon lunch time steam whistle my grandad worked at in his old age in the little East Texas sawmill town.
Good days in summer on his farm and the surrounding woods.

Summer nights sleeping with the windows open and a million crickets chirping outside. I still love that sound.

F-89s flying over my home on takeoff, afterburners lit. THUNDER!

B-52 MITO launch at 4:30 AM. ROLLING THUNDER! -hint-

Playing cards clothespined to the frame of a bike rattlin’ in the spokes.

A Model T swamp buggy in the morning.

The ‘plop’ of a Hula Popper on still water.

My .410 ejecting a spent shell.


I am..........disturbed.

Train horn in the background at night. The sounds of old Ford 8n. An old "kerchunk kerchunk kerchunk" square baler running on the farm across the street.

Same for me here and also with the learning Italian bit, us kids didn't and regret it now.
We lived in southern AZ and they also spoke spanish fluently.

The steam engine whistles from trains that used to pass by Dad's greenhouses. The tracks were only about 75 feet away - and those whistles were freakin' LOUD... laugh

You could set your watch by it and never be off more than a couple minutes. Pleasant memories. What were some sounds you always enjoyed hearing? Another was during fall harvest time when the crops were being worked. Tractors, combines, and hay wagon trains all putting in their time, getting the crops out of the field before the snow flew.

Same sound memory for me, whenever we visited my grandparents in Virginia, i.e,. that train horn in the distance, all hours of the day and night. It was actually a comforting sound.

The sound of hog feeder lids always brings me back to lying in bed at my aunt and uncle's. I would lie in the darkness before falling asleep trying to call exactly when the next lid would bang.

A weekly event was the moans and shrieks of the neighbor’s korean wife.
She’d make that sound every Saturday morning as she laid across the hood of a 66 mustang, holding onto the windshield wipers as her husband backed out of the driveway. Minor marital situation. Was good entertainment.

He’d stop and peel her off at the stop sign

Hearing drip gas motors on pumpjacks in oil fields of Osage county during the summers sleeping on my great aunt's screened in porch. Hearing my grandfather swing open with a clang the top of a cast iron King Heater wood stove, the metallic bang when he poke the coals from the previous fire and dropped log rounds into to the old stove, followed by the grating sound when he slid the lid closed every morning . The muted morning conversations of men in deer camp and the sound of Zippo lighters firing up the first cigarette of the day.
