I dunno if woodworking is exactly a hobby anymore, since I augment my retirement income with it. (especially lathe turning).....but I also study and collect wood specimens and belong to the IWCS. Since is is estimated that only about 1/3 of maybe 100,000 plants big enough to supply a 3"x6" specimen have been identified, I guess it is a 'hobby' to chase new varieties. Maybe it is a hobby when you can think of Thespesia populnea easier than ...ummm....oh yeah, Portia Tree.

The other hobby is beer....I have somewhere over 800 beer bottles & cans I have ...ahem....'accumulated' for the past 30 years. The basic rule is, to get spot on the shelf, it has to be emptied by ME.

Barbecuing, brewing, sailing, rendezvous, just started fencing. Let's not forget music, although that's more of an obsession than a hobby. It's a fine line.

I spend a lot of time in cemeteries -- my particular area of interest is New England slate markers from between 1650-ish and 1825-ish (most willows and urns make my eyes glaze over), the men who carved them and ligatures on gravestones. Also the carver John Just Geyer and his father Henry Christian Geyer.

I do rubbings, photographs and transcriptions. I collect books on the extended subject of gravestones, funerary art and customs, epitaphs, etc.

But primarily, I think, I'm fascinated with stone. And the history. With the help and advice of Fud Benson and Doug Coffin, I'm learning how to cut letterforms in slate (if I can steal enough time to actually do it).

I also sort of "chase" folk music (and lore) related markers. Tom and I discovered Professor Child over 10 years ago. We've also located Timothy Myrick who was the fellow bit by the rattlesnake in "Springfield Mountain" (He's actually buried in Wilbraham, MA.)

There are batwinged death's heads in Hallowell, Maine, and I've found full-rigged ships on both slate and marble markers, but so far have not found any representation of squid.

Antiques, Knowledge on all except minimal on furniture. Collect particularly silver...(some Georgian wouldn't ya know). Hiking, working out at the gym, air gunning, carbooting and most of all Folk Clubbing of course.

Crochet has become an addiction, not a hobby! I also am starting to play with beading and, to try and head off the dreaded senility, I've started doing Sudoko puzzles.

I just found the Microsoft Picture It in my Works folder (after having this computer for 2 years!) and have been happily playing with the special effects there.

Still got a great pile of books to read.

Dancing, Scottish country and highland, and associated running around herding cats dancers. Reading. Some tabletop war gaming, and associated modelling. Brewing my own beer. And Rumour-mongering, although you didn't heat that from me...

Yeah, Spaw. What's a yak ball? Oh...never mind. You know I actually took a short trip in a yak skin boat in Tibet. Somewhere I have pictures. I saw lots of yak droppings but never peaked under the yak to examine his balls.

I go on walks with a couple of neighbours - we do these huge walks ending up with coming back via second hand bookshops & coffee. This combines several hobbies, walking, reading, talking, and having coffee!

Having Snorkelled for many years I have recently,& belatedly,tried my hand at SCUBA Diving.Though I have had only one session so far (with another soon)I found it to be one of the most exhilirating experiences of my life.

I like to draw and paint, and write songs, but rarely find the time to do any of them. Hiking, crabbing, kayaking and fishing are also favorites, but also very infrequent, of late. I also like to pretend I can play the fiddle.

From reading to racing, beading to luthiery, sailing to motorcycling, writing to railroading, my passions have generally been all consuming with a bit of the root hog or die approach. Like many around here my tastes and interests have varied widely over the years and is why I never doubt when another 'Catter seems to be into an awful lot of things in their life.........I know the feeling. Outside of the fun, it makes you pretty fair at Trivial Pursuit.......a dubious accomplishment.

But I have decided now to concentrate all of my energies into developing the world's largest collection of mummified Yak balls. Fortunately I have very little energy to devote to it but hopefully there is enough to set myself up in the Guinness Book of World Records. I plan on taking them on tour at some point to all the hospitals and nursing homes along with perhaps a spot on Letterman or Leno.

We used to be in a Volkswagen club and those people were a lot of fun.

Used to do a lot of Civil War and Texas Republic reenacting, too.

Currently, I sew (make my own clothes from vintage patterns), quilt, knit a little, and sometimes paint things. I used to be very active in collecting and showing horse figurines but I'm trying to back off on that--too expensive and time consuming. The model horse thing is a world unto itself, though. It's weird, but there are some interesting people and amazing artists in it.

I read, sing, and doodle Celtic stuff (8 rows of Celtic knotwork... NEVER AGAIN. Oh, the pain). I net surf (a lot of fantasy art-gazing) and play online games like a fiend (more complex games yet runnable-on-ancient-computer games like DragonFable). I play collectable card games, video games and I've roleplayed (yes, Dungeons and Dragons).
And most importantly, I write. In hopes of someday actually finishing my novel. My Muses tend to clam up tighter than Fort Knox.

I job hunt. I am very good at it and get interviews and job offers all the time. Then I work for two weeks and quit.
Does that count?
I also collect stray cats, people, and items that need a home. Anyone want to adopt a Lourdes Grotto circa 1930 in need of wiring?

I make jewelry.
To be more precise, I buy a lot of jewelry stuff and I start projects. Once in a great while, I finish one. I know Jacqui makes things as well. Fire Mountain Gems is a nice place to buy things.

LOTS of things. (Get the free catalog!)

I've been wondering something for a while now, and this might be a good time to ask, what is your hobby?

Jacqui and I bought a 1930 Model "A" Ford. There are countless clubs that are dedicated to the restoration and preservation of old cars. The ones I have seen so far are made up of nice people (like the mudcat), and we go on Sunday rides and rallys.
One of the favorite things to do is to go to retirement homes and give the residents a ride in a car that they used to drive many years ago. They are delighted by this experience.

Do you have a hobby that you would like to tell us about?
