Default Other interests ...?

What are some of the other interests that people do . I would love to see some other skills anybody has employed in their hobbies or self defensive arsenals . Anything from knife throwing to whatever it is . Show us please , I lov this stuff !

Now , my own interests started in my youth , about the age of nine . I had an abusive father and as a way to protect my mother , I knew I had to do something . By age eleven , I started martial arts at school . I took this further with my paper route money , a real school of offence , a way to even the playing feild . By thirteen , I'd accomplished what needed .

Bruce Lee was the big thing in that era and everybody was into nunchucks . Me being different , I had to find something different , the katana . Many years and martial arts schools later , the sword became part of me . It's lasted all my life . I have interests in all forms of defense so show me what yaul do , I would lov to see it . Don't be shy , show me !

As far as other defensive skills, I enjoy cooking broccoli, cauliflower and Brussels's sprouts. I usually sautè or roast with olive oil and garlic, sometimes I prefer a cheese sauce. I usually serve these dishes as a side with meat and starch, all washed down with a cold Yuengling Lager, often followed by a nice dairy-based dessert, such as Turkey Hill Double Dunker ice cream or a yogurt and fruit concoction.

Then I sit back and relax, secure in the knowledge that my "6" is covered!

I am also into Lionel toy trains, Old and new. I have a large collection and layout. It is a very relaxing hobby. Shooting, trains, and my boat keep me fairly busy.

I've got an old Chevy and Harley in the garage. Turning wrenches and getting my hands dirty is great stress relief. I call it Craftsman therapy.

well I like bowling uh well if I can do it with a 44mag. I've always had a interest in throwing weapons. have some hawks and throwers but my shoulders and back won't tolerate my practice so no more or well maybe once in a while if I get my target set up again. Like bows but never got really set up for them before my body quit. Gona have a new crossbow soon though will get some shooting in with it as time allows and deer hunting if I'm up to it.

Mostly I tinker with stuff and do some woodworking when not shooting. Or watching my grandkids the kiddos take a good chunk of my free mobile time nowadays.

Given my choice of what to do when I dont have things I have to do, woodworking is my fun! My wife and I bought a giant old home 14 years ago to make sure I would never be without fun and it hasnt let me down yet! Winter is a drag cause it kinda puts a damper on my building, the wood shop is a bit cold for playing but Ive filled the season with lots of little crapple jobs to keep me from the couch potato syndrome kicking in.
