Then I turned legal driving age,
and this is why I forgot the piano;

That was a '72 Dodge Charger with a 440 4bbl, L-60-15s rear, G-70-15s front, new paint and my old flame Shelly.

Shelly, the car, all gone,, not forgotten

Between work and trying to get the old house to decent living standards I don't have much time for hobbies. I used to camp hunt and fish but I forgot what its like. I spend what little free time I have wrenching on my fords and participating in my favorite ford truck forum. I am presently working on putting a 78 e-150 I got for 200 bucks on the road. Its got a 460 and c-6 so due to gas prices it wont be a daily driver. I think it will be great for hauling materials and towing though. I also tend to my animals for relaxation. I got a goat,a rooster, four mallard ducks and five hens about ready to start laying.

I married a movie nut so I spend a lot of time before the big screen. We also have Janie's sister living with us, 7 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. We don't have to look far for something to keep us busy. I love to entertain the children though; I like being a friend to them and watching their faces light up when we "ring their bell".
I wold like to adopt one or two children, Janie being a Registered Nurse and me a Registered Master Plumber, our children would have pedigree papers. Wouldn't that be fun? I raised 2 children who are the apple of my eye and I miss them so much but they are living their lives now and I try not to nose into their activities too much (its a challenge though). Janie raised one girl from a previous marriage and she keeps something stiring all the time; we just shake our heads and say "Go Tammy"!

Default Airstreams, and now bungalow renovations

I spent a few years of my life "redoing" a 1972 Airstream travel trailer... oddly enough, I am now living in it while renovating my bungalow. I seem to have expensive hobbies. My other hobby is my 1992 Miata. Well, no longer expensive now that all things are fixed, and at 32 mpg, who can argue with that!

Check them out if you like!

That's awesome Streamin1972, you're on the path my hubby and I are aiming for I dream of the day an airstream is my hobby, and I dream of living in it while we build our fantasized earth home on our fantasized 50 acres!
Lucky for me, my hobby is my job. Our bungalow is my baby, and there are so many things to learn from it, I can't recall the last time I was bored. We also have 4 dogs, and they keep life fun and interesting. Yes, four dogs, and I swear I've never gone looking for a pet, they all seem to find their way to me In addition to the home repairs and dog chasing, I enjoy my husband's hobby of cooking, I get a real kick out of salvaging what others consider junk and I love exploring alternative building methods and health practices--which often lead me to learning the old-fashioned way of life is far superior to technological developments!

Default Now serving....

Boy it's good to bring up some of the old stuff.

My latest hobby is crossing my oldest into the Boy scouts from webloes.
The other stuff is not hobbies, just wood working.
What are you all doing?

This is perfect for those that don't post much.

tennis, fishing, disk golf, pool. i grew up always tinkering with cars, still have a v8 rx7 project car that will probably never get finished at the rate i'm going. i'm one of those people that could easily have 10 cars and still want more. eventually graduated to sportbikes and threw WAY too much money at roadracing until just recently when i bought my house. now i have a new money pit. one that probably won't kill me.
