varies... tha world!
Besides this forum, which takes an unusual amount of time from our days already, does anyone have any interesting hobbies or activities they participate in? Like I said in an earlier post I'm a surfer, but I've been known to race a car or two on the track as well. What about you?

I'm not sure that is as much a hobby as a complusive obsessive behavior.

Now, the world don't move to the beat of just one drum,
What might be right for you, may not be right for some.
A man is born, he's a man of means.
Then along come two, they got nothing but their jeans.


But they got, Diff'rent Strokes. It takes,
Diff'rent Strokes. It takes,
Diff'rent Strokes to move the world.


Everybody's got a special kind of story
Everybody finds a way to shine,
It don't matter that you got,
not alot,
So what,
They'll have theirs, and you'll have yours, and I'll have mine.
And together we'll be fine....

Because it takes, Diff'rent Strokes to move the world.
Yes it does.
It takes, Diff'rent Strokes to move the world.

I enjoy fire trucks and collecting fire department stuff. Hope to own my own fire truck someday. My wife has already blessed this idea. Just need a place to park it.

A classmate of my daughter's has one. His parents bought it and used the ladder to support swings, etc. and then painted "Tonka" on the sides of it. The horn and everything still work on it too.

Way, way south.
I collect old BMX Bicycles from the early '80's, and I am gearing up to start racing again myself. This should be interesting.....

There is very little interesting about me. Does that make me unique?

I hunt pheasants, ducks, geese, and deer. I play golf -poorly.

I fish when I can get up to Minnesota. (My daughter & I have a 1/2 booked w/ a guide for next Tuesday. My brother-in-law and I have the next full day booked. Detroit Lakes area.)

I really enjoy my watching my kids participate in sports, theater, and music. The whole fammed damly is cast in "The Sound of Music" this fall. (Local community theater.)

I think I mentioned this a while back, but I make chainmaile jewelry and pouches as a hobby. I'm currently working on a suit of chainmaile armor, should take about 4-5 months total to finish. I also help run an annual Renaissance Faire that happens at the college I graduated from.

I hit golf balls in grass fields (I would never dignify my game by calling it "play")

I collect wine (I drink it as a hobby)

I used to monitor a star wars forum. I know far too much about the movie to qualify as an adult.

I do interior design and painting for my friends for free so I have to call it a hobby. I love to paint (wierd huh?)

I have a huge antique canning jar collection. (I don't can anything)

My dream is to race formula 1 cars for fun, but I can't afford one Anyone have one I can borrow?

I collect coffee mugs, hang them on hooks in the kitchen.

Mom collected hippopotamus figurines - after a hippo came up to the fence at the local zoo and gave me a big smile when I was 4 years old. Sounds obscure, but when friends and family discover you collect something like this, they took great pleasure in finding them on their travels and passing them along to mom as gifts.

Let's see...I collect Boyd's Bears (used to be all kinds of bears but have now narrowed that to just Boyd's) and Depression Glass.

I ride horse (on the trail not competition).

I golf...rather poorly but golf none-the-less.

I play softball (better than I play golf).

I'm pretty sure this isn't interesting, but I'm working my way through all 32,000 Free Cell games. I've beaten about 2,500 so far.

Me too. Maybe we can start a club, when they put us in our cells at the loony bin we will have something to talk about.
