    Pistols/shooting, working in the yard/fixing stuff at the house, hangin out with my girls, bourbon, cigars, rock concerts, playing guitar when I have the time. The simple things.

    Used to be ate up with bass fishing, fished regional tournaments for about 12 years. Now I'm not that mad at them anymore and I mainly just fish to enjoy but I barely go. The boat just sits and that's one of the worst things for it. Kinda want to sell it but the wife wont let me, go figure.

    I work in the car business (Toyota) and there is no extra time....it's work / farm upkeep / horses / sleep....wife gets my son where he needs to be...the welding only happens if I can slip it in on a rainy day

    My kids got involved in several things and my work keeps me covered up. A few years ago I sold my boat and Harley. My neighbor used my boat more than me and the bike was just a garage decoration. Maybe later in life... I'm treasuring my time with the kids. Baby girl graduates this year and will be gone... Part of me is dying and the other part proud.
    I feel your pain, my baby girl is graduating this year as well. Time sure fly's by.

    Well, "spa-Peggy" is kind of like spaghetti. I'm not sure what Peggy does different, if anything. But it's the one dish she's kind of made her own.

    No way to weigh it but the game biologist estimated 900-1000 lbs. due the the length and girth.  The hide squared 9' 8".

    I've got plenty of hobbies/interest, but like others have mentioned, they've been modified since I've grown from college life, to married man, to father of 1.5 working two jobs and in grad school.

    I used to hunt and fish year round and prolly played a round of golf every other day in the summer.

    Now I cook for my family, fly with my father in law, love keeping my yard up, do some hunting/fishing with my dad, and I collect guns and shoot when the money/time is available. Playing with my daughter is top of the list. I'm a busy man, so when there is free time, my wife and daughter trump all of my hobbies, not because I'm told to, but they are what really matter in the long run.

    I do get a good man night at least 2-3 times a month.

    The first "man night" I've had in forever was salado. The first time in 15 years of work travels I've ever stopped for fun. I won't miss another as long as I'm breathing.

    Aside from kid duty, driving / modding my vette and watching sports is what I do to unwind.  I use to be into drag racing, but staying away from the track has been good for the budget.  ;)

    What's your other hobby besides egging? I enjoy gardening, fishing, camping and following motocross.
    I play pool (8 ball, 9 ball, 10 ball, one pocket and straight pool).  Does drinking wine and eating out count as a hobby?  If so, then I have more than 1 other hobby!
