Re: What are your other passions?

Things we do: Travel, gardening, stained glass (me), hunting (dh), and now, our most important "thing"....our 4 month old grandson!

Oh, and learning to sail and hanging out on our "new" to us, sailboat.

Re: What are your other passions?

I only have one obsession at a time and this year it will be sailing.

I have hung up for this new obsession:
Music (only gig every 2 months for the Summer this year)
Hot Rods (Last toy I built I lost my shirt...LOL)
Bikes (Motorcycles - Wasn't riding much anymore)
Fishing (I will sell the center console this year)

I think that is about it...I have a short attention span so we will see how the sailing thing goes.

Been there for a couple years, and have been taking lessons from Rosewood Guitar here in Seattle.

On the bright side, I gave my wife a ukulele for Christmas, so we're slowly working on chords and possible duets together.

Your last name wouldn't happen to begin with a "C", would it?

Re: What are your other passions?

MedSailor,
I see you enjoy archery. Have you ever heard of Copper John Corporation? They make The Dead Nuts series hunting sights and they also own Stanislawski Archery Products which makes release aids.

Familiar with them?

2. Backpacking and bushcraft
3. International travel
4. Hurting myself with power tools (old boat and an older house)
5. Homebrewing, including homebrewing on the boat. (Drinking a homebrew now)
6. Macro-Economics. (nerdy I know, but it gets a lot less nerdy when your stock portfolio goes up and up and up... )

Hobbies I used to do more of and would do more of if I had more time:
1. Archery
2. Shooting and reloading
3. Rock Climbing
4. SCUBA diving.

I still play lots of music and sing to the ladies, but that's what I do for a living. Yeah, I know, but it's a fun job.



Cheers,

Gary... great looking picture... oh and the piano looks good too!

I need to start playing some other music besides classical so I can have the ladies lining up as you have!

Is this the line of business you're in or a hobby? Nice to see someone with musical skills making some $$$ and making the ladies smile!
