I have too many hobbies. At least SWMBO says I have more hobbies than a man should be allowed.

So besides my fish tanks, I do a little wood working. That normally works well with my tanks as I build all of my own stands and tops.

I collect and use fountain tip pins.

I turn pens... I have a small wood lathe and use it to make my own pens. Mostly I make them and give them away, but at times I make one that I just can't get rid of.

I build and fly high power rockets.

I am also building a Factory Five 1933 Ford Hot Rod.

Currently the fish tanks and the Hot Rod are my #1 time takers... But I love every minute they take.

I do a little amateur gunsmithing and target shooting. I built my fiancee a .22 pistol for her birthday last year and had it painted to match her Kitchenaid products.


She and I also rescue bulldogs. Our current one is Eleanor who was one of the worst abuse/neglect cases our county had seen. Before photos are graphic, but here's a before and after that isn't too bad:


I also have 8 raised beds to vegetable garden in the summer months, but need a few more weeks before posting a good photo of this year's crops.

For almost 20 years I bred corn and western hognose snake morphs but I sold off my collection a couple of years back. Having so many living things under your care gets to be a burden after a while.

Just a day gecko. Used to be a breeding pair but the female died and I never hatched another female. My favorite thing about that terrarium is that I don't have to buy insects. I fed them dubia and lobster roaches and enough got behind the background and started a colony. So I just throw vegetables in there once a week and mist it daily.

Thanks... The inside of the stand is built with spare 2X4 and 2X12s that I had sitting around in the garage. The outside is skinned with Red Oak that I stained with Walnut stain. I also have a canopy using the Red Oak that holds all the lights and a door on the front so I can easily feed them.

I have 9 chickens, I like to play video games and watch football, and I especially love to go fishing and camping. I also enjoy playing Magic The Gathering.

Wow, chickens and video games are long way apart..

But it's wonderful that chickens and the video games get the same love.,.

lol, they are very different. I don't have to clean video game poop or collect video game eggs, but video games aren't fluffy and quirky, and most video games won't eat out of your hands

Nice gun!! I like the red color. I am in the process of building an AR15. It will look like the original ones from the Vietnam war, carry handle and everything.
