I'm quite the dust collector...

Come to think of it, I really don't have a real hobby anymore, since I work in the hobby and do it in my free time. I was the same way with golf, I worked in it and eat, slept, and breathed it 24/7/365. Guess that's just the way I am, whatever I do, I do 100%. My dad was that way and so is my brother. We do something all the way or not at all.

My life revolves around my work, and I guess I could consider it a hobby, since I'm always looking at new equipment and spend most of my off time doing something work related. I refinish natural stone. Marble floors, marble counters, granite counters, terrazzo, concrete etc. Just got a new machine today, I haven't been this excited since I bought my new truck 7 years ago.

My main hobby is woodworking, then fishing, followed by listening to good rock and roll. Unfortunately I am finding I can't do the first two too much anymore, thus my re-emergence into modeling. Yrs of beating the hell out of my lungs is taking its' toll. Can't do the things I loved doing.

advice to others: if you don't smoke, don't ever start. If you do smoke, quit now! Don't wait til you can't breathe anymore.
