I love to golf, even if it is a funny sight.... :thumbsup:

I use to fish, but we moved away from the mountains and I'm just not interested anymore.

It is no accident that I live one mile from one river and five miles from another and have a lake one mile away as well, yep...I like spaghetti. :thumbsup: Sorry I couldn't help myself. :flowers: Yes I enjoy fishing, trolling on the lake and fly fishing on the rivers.

I also like watching movies, the reception where I live makes watching TV an iffy proposition.

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

why won't my laptop work?

Having grandkids is God's way of giving you a 2nd chance because you were too busy working your butt off the 1st time around

I will concede that people can get carried away. A lot of the stuff bought for our kids stay at grandma's and grandpa's house, so if it gets too crowded we've only ourselves to blame

I used to hold frequent garage sales or yard sales when I was the parent -- then the grandparents slowed down.

I'm a GF also and spoil my Daughter and my GD as well.

Back to the original Topic.

I often take a pistol to a range and attempt to punch holes in paper within a 4 inch circle at 25 meters. (Yes - meters)

Before that I used to help blow up things, people, places, and countries. (Did I say that out loud?)

I love to go fishing - don't have all the opportunities I used to have though.

I love to spook people too!

I used to work a big garden just for the fun and exercise. Gave away most of the product.

Too many other items come to mind as hobbies also... I won't bore you all any longer.
The only easy day was yesterday.
