Nothing new.
I like to watch sumo.
Play with my kids.
Ultimate Frisbee with my older boys and a bunch of other kids from our homeschool group.
A bit of gardening.
A bit of ‘farming.’ I have a half-empty lot in town. I planted some wheat there, threshed and winnowed it. Haven’t quite finished it to eat, though. I also planted 24 Christmas trees there.
Bird feeders and hummingbird feeders.
And, of course, making more kids. :cool:

Number one hobby is spending time with my 4year old boy and wife.... but besides that

1st biggest hobby, I am SUPER into mechanical maintenance on my truck. Always doing something to it maintenance wise. Recently was Throttle body cleaning, My once a year power steering fluid change and then bleed the breaks ( every other year). Next in line for maintenance is Power washing all the mud off the underside and re-rust roofing ( spring touch up) the entire truck with Fluid Film. After that is spark plugs and a trans pan drop for fluid and filter change. I could keep going with the list


2nd biggest hobby, firewood processing

3rd is vegetable garden.

I thought I was busy just cutting firewood and keeping or trying to keep up my houses. I have a garden every year and have a small green house. I have been trying to figure out how to grow wild huckleberries. I have not raced my dirt bikes in a while will have to race in the 70 year class. My grand daughter is already out of med school and she is quite busy too. Thanks

Just sold the last of my coin collection, so that's one less hobby. Thinking of letting the Lionel trains go. I have a 1948 WS4109 radio controlled set, complete, no boxes. Tobacco tins are gone. The saws and axes are part of my heritage, so they are harder to let go of. Got my eye on a couple more pre war Savage 99's, so that collection is growing.

I got rid of most of my saws. Started collecting cast iron cookware. It is a cheap hobby and your food tastes better. I did recently start stripping and restoring rusty stuff so that is the first step into true addiction LOL

And yes, there is some drama on the cast iron sites just like there are on the saw sites. LOL

Many years ago my father began rebuilding player pianos. He and I worked on one together. Had to replace the fabric on the pneumatics for the keys(88) as well as the vacuum motors. I then set up the action and learned to tune it. You see the motor on the left that drives the rolls. Those two valves have to be perfectly timed 180 deg apart so it turns smoothly. That was 1984 and it still plays nicely today. There are a couple repair dates on the harp - around 1927.
