Hobbies other than home repair and improvements.
I have many interests;
boating and canoeing
working on a massive old tools collection
new and innovative ways to ruin my kids
a little hunting (ducks)
old books about building and construction standards
and a CD colection of mostly '80s rock and some country, classical and whatever else peaks my interest at any given time.
Hiking when someone else wants to go. I just don't go alone.
What else do you do?
I hit my thumb with a hammer sometimes
mow the lawn
look for things I have lost
I also like to contribute to my childrens future need for therapy.
Jeeps, home brewing beer mainly Weizens, building AK variants, boating, river tubing, camping, fishing, fish and aquariums .... Too many hobbies not enough time.
Grandsons, Golf, Woodworking. Not enough time for any of them because of the day job runs into too many nights.
Kids...scouts...wife jobs...wait those are not hobbies!!!:D
Kayaking, fishing...anywhere...Stock car racing for 12 years, ended last year...now I have you folks...depressing aint it.:p
Snowmobiling, summer camping, winter camping.....woodworking used to be fun, now it's just a job.
Burnt out woodworker :D
I love that name - Square Eye for the Tool Guy. Very cool! I'm a musician myself. Or, at least, I call myself a musician. I'm not sure anyone else would agree.
Well, I've got an entry level Kimball baby grand piano in the corner of my living room. It holds up several pictures and collects tons of dust. I took lessons when I was a kid, now I just pittle with it and look at it. It's not like a bicycle for me, I'm not a player, the lessons are all but lost in the muck that my mind has become. I believe that I could build another piano before I could learn to play one now.
What is your plan with the ol piano?
We just got rid of the one we had for 5 years, boy's were not interested except to play chopsticks for ever!:p
We collected...dust ,toys, model trains, then everything that seamed to make it into the room.I guessed it would do better somewhere else, and be worth more .
I just found my new hobby for the summer. Fill the kiddie pool with water and soak. Man is it a scorcher today.
Off to the pool......:rolleyes:
Maybe someday I'll get so old, I'll have to retire.
Then I'll start getting serious again.
IF arthritis hasn't gotten to my hands.
I can't sit still long enough to listen to myself slaughtering the work of songwriters everywhere.
Square Eye is not kidding about building a piano. A young couple had an old upright they had refinished and were really proud of. When they brought it to their home (60mile trip) it rode fine until they pulled off the freeway and made a left hand turn. Then it rolled over the side of their pickup and burst into a zillion pieces. I allowed them $50 off their bill for the work we were doing and Square Eye put 'er all back together and started picking out some tunes on it!
