What OTHER hobbies is everyone into?

Before the stroke I was into woodworking.I've since sold most of my tools to folks at work and am using the proceeds for my other hobby - Amateur Astronomy.

The biggest surprise I had in college was absolutely loving my Astronomy course. Fascinating stuff
My other hobby is pretty boring- gardening. Last year I put in a succulent garden in back yard that is perfect for the warm climate I live in. Here are a few pictures.

I've moved into binocular based astronomy of late. Last Christmas my wife gave me These.

Nitro RC vehicles, Drones, and Tools (which evolved into a love of DIY).

I may come across as a know-it-all. In reality, I have no idea.

Fishing, grass cutting, loud cars, and of course being a Canadian means I love hockey

Thank you, but no cowboy here.
I have nothing to do with cattle.

Use to have alot of hobbies. Leather working, a little knife making, blacksmithing, tad of wood working, gardening (which I dont consider a hobby), playing with my truck, shooting (although WA state has gotten worse then Cali and is so difficult now its not even fun anymore).

BUT with a wife, 5 and 1.5 yr old daughters, 2 dogs, a 2 hr round trip commute to work, trying to take care of our place and the inlaws place its near impossible to do anything besides a little tank maintenance once in a while. Heck its hard enough to find time just to mow the yard or change the oil in the truck.

Planted aquariums are my passion these days. Besides that, Golf, Hiking, Mountain biking, Racing RC cars, and woodworking.

I'm retired and gotta keep busy. Hobbies that involve lots of tinkering, like aquariums and RC Cars are favorites.
