With my wife, I love to travel; whenever possible.  The demands of having an autistic 14 year old son make it harder to get away just for the two of us, but on some trips, he can come with us.  
 
On my own, I enjoy fishing, bird hunting and clay target shooting.  One of my dreams someday is to go to South Dakota for a real wild pheasant hunt; around here; all we have are shooting preserves. 
 
Less exotic hobbies include going with my wife to the movies; we especially enjoy independent films.   Blockbusters at the local metroplex are fine; but its nice to have other options.

Doctor visits, but I seem to be past that.

And that's never a bad thing.  Glad you're back in the saddle.

I love to read about food, particularly about how it was woven in and out of life during the early 20th century. "Square Meals" is one of my favorite books!
 
Also enjoy photography, cars and antiques. 
 
I deal in current events at work so it's nice to take a break from that on weekends.

I collect dust.

That's funny, I'm so old I fart dust. Can I send you some?

Star gazing , the ones in the sky. Telescopes and other optics. Showing off my sheet metal and welding skills. I just started a new job and a couple ole timers already have an attitude with me. Truth hurts.

My older daughter's husband and younger daughter's boyfriend can each weld circles around you.  But if you think you're better, build me a Santa Maria grill to prove it.

That disgusting looking mixture in the jar is my first attempt to make gin.
 
My hobby is to drink it.

I could cut and form the steel at lunch out of scrap and weld it after work. I have done a LOT bigger and better than the pictures on that page , pretty much free. Stainless or black iron, I have built many. I have access to a laser cutter and plasma table. When are you coming back? I can weld the crack of dawn. Journeyman skills.

Gardening, floating on the ocean fishing for salmon, crabs, gathering clams, picking huckleberries, mushrooms, fine art printing, reading, road trips in the Miata, and enjoying family.

Mr Weber is now making a premium quality charcoal at about a buck a pound, so maybe you can cut out Mr Kingsford. I switched to propane, myself, years ago. I have not told my wife, though, how much I would like one of those high end, hand made, heavy steel, Argentine grill setups. She would buy it for my birthday, and spend way too much..........

These grills are pretty sweet...  just by looking at them they look to be very well made. I made one after I watched a show on TV. It didn't have a wheel to adjust it , I added or subtracted small patio bricks under the legs. I literally cut up scrap angle and tacked it together and brought it camping at Patoka Lake and used it and left it there for the next happy camper, the grease followed the angle iron away from the fire and reduced flare ups. I dont cook out enough to build on for me , but if the SCREAMING CHICKEN challenges me again I might make one just to rub it in his beak. I just changed jobs 3 wks ago and have to wait before I start doing Gov't work again. It would cost less than $100.00 to make a very nice one. I'm happy with my Weber Kettle grill.

I wouldn't call it a hobby, anyways I like trying different types of coffee in different places, each of them r giving me a discount coupons, but I've never come back to the same place so far. The number of coffee shops is limited though, so very soon I'll definitely one one

We have a BBQ vending trailer that was a hobby, it does keep us busy though. We also go off road with our Jeep and our side X side. We watch any form of racing with a engine and go to a bunch of the races.

We never watch the normal sports most people watch though.
