"Uh oh" ..... which in my experience can only be superseded in by the more dreaded "Ooops!"

Here are the sounds I just 'love' to hear: that little click when you turn the key that means your battery is dead. The sound of sleet/icy rain on the metal roof. Dogs barking in the dark--or the phone ringing after midnight. The whippoorwill directly outside the bedroom window (he needs to add some new tunes to his list).
Aw shucks.........

Sorry I wasn't more clear! Yes, I meant "love" sarcastically. I guess I should add silence. It's one of the scariest sounds for the mother of a toddler. Best case scenario, she's making a huge mess. I know no good ever comes of it!

"Can you do me a favor?" I want to know what the favor is first.

Actually, I liked your answers the best, Uncle Bob. Your answers gave me a flavor of your home. One of my favorite sounds is the sound of crashing waves at the beach.

So do chickadees.

Used to have whole flocks of the adorable little buggers outside in winter.

A sound I "love": cat fight, especially when your cat only weighs five pounds. Or if you only have one cat and he's an indoor cat.

Okay, cat fight noise isn't so great, even when you have several cats.

Snuffle, snuffle, sniff, sniff, snort, snort, ahchoo right before you get your morning (occasionally middle of the night) wake-up "shower" in the face from a pug who has decided it's time for you to wake up because she wants attention. Yes, our babies are spoiled rotten. Fortunately (or maybe unfortunately), we don't hear this as often as we used to since she's getting older and sleeping longer/deeper.

Ohhhh, I didn't know you were being sarcastic either...

In that case it's, "Put your hands in the air and turn around slowly."

oops. I got it wrong, also. I "love" to hear my dog barking to come back in the house two minutes after I just let him out. He drives me crazy some days. He will bug us to go out, then want back in. No sooner, he wants back out again. Makes me go "grrrrr".

I just love the screech of a kid wanting her way and the crying that insues when her brother smacks her.I also love the dog who barks constantly while trying to catch bees and wasps
