My other hobbies include my 71el camino which I'm trying to get back on the road, reading (Dean Koontz, Stephen King, and World War 2), Arizona Diamondbacks, NASCAR, and NHRA.  But my favorite hobby is my three year old granddaughter!!

Oh, and I collect rocks too. It's free! I have rocks from all over the world right now. Anytime someone in the office travels to a different country I always have them pick me up a rock. Nothing store bought, just off the beach, road, ground, street, etc. I have rocks from Japan, China, Germany, Australia, many places in the UK, etc.

Thanks knarf. I see your in Michigan. I grew up in the Pontiac/Waterford area before moving to KY 7 years ago.

 

You have me at a loss though. What movie character reference?

 

This local creek is nothing but shell fossils. Look down and the ground your on is one giant slab of fossilized shells. My dog Scotch enjoying a day in the water.

Another fossil from the same creek. Lots of small bones that had collected in one spot.

I also build 1:1 drag cars and race them, build 1:1 showcars, build and operate extremely high horsepower (475+ hp)turbocharged custom mountain snowmobiles, build and shoot guns including 1000 yard competitions, reload ammunition, and collect Snap-On and other high quality tools. This hobby is the least expensive of the bunch and I still end up spending WAY too much on it.

 Thanks Ray, she is. She has what is called "Kabuki Syndrome" and in Australia there is a big network of Kabuki families and one organization that we're a part of. Unfortunately Kabuki Syndrome has a lot of stuff that goes with it.

She's a trooper though, not much keeps her down!!!!!

Have a great day!!!
