    The doll's house is ace! I have a smaller one at home a friend updated for me. However the grandchildren think it's creepy so I have to cover it up when they come round. Perhaps when Evie gets a little older she will love it

    I've responded to this topic way back in the past, before I was married. I'll respond, again...lots of hiking, training our female Husky/wolf & searching for a mate for her, keeping up/repairing items in & outside the house/on this farmette, lots of church activities. Hobbies, who has time! LOL!  ATTN: We are Brethren-Head coverings on women during services are required.

    I never concidered motorcycle a hobbie, But then I would guess thats what I do in life, Im eather riding building buying selling or talking motercycles. before I retired I did work but only enough to keep the bikes running. Now that Im retired I stop by the clubhouse several times a week. keeping it up.  tend bar on the weekends, and build fast high necked motercycles,   Life is as it should be

    ND,The hat rack looks great, as do the other pieces you created.

    TanzaniteD that is a really sweet picture, and the veil over the head is still practiced in a lot of places around the country.

    I am still looking for that perfect picture/scene to take and still practicing my music.One of these days I'll learn how to pick these strings right!

    Bass fishing - Number 1 after riding

    Trout fishing - Love to tie my own flies, take the fly rod to the river and hook into some nice Rainbow or German Browns

    Does trying to Sell Everything I own before I die count as a Hobby?

    Anyone Want to do some fishing in 2017?

    I have a boat, am a Disabled Veteran and need help with it. I am Not Physically able to do the work on the boat due to incurable medical issues. My health is failing, Non curable medical problem Chemo Therapy drugs and other nasty drugs that I will be on the rest of my life, however long that may be, that are keeping me alive but, I won’t ever be able to work again. I just am not able to do much anymore. Physically & financial Help is needed. check my facebook picture albums to see the boat. Looking for Sponsors to help provide Veterans with Fishing trips and Free Ash Scatterings at Sea. Pass the word. Products, Services, Gift Cards or Cash Donations would be Great! I just set up a PayPal Account if anyone wants to Make a Gift Donation of any amount give it a try. The account email is to accept payment. Could use some real hands on help with all of the work and expense that a boat entails. Any of you want to get involved?

    Keeping the Boat at the Marina would be best if I can get donations to cover expenses. Need help getting it on & off the trailer as I cant do it myself. Some days I can barley lift a coffee cup, other days are better. As the boat sits right now the engine is still pickled with antifreeze, winterized and the diesel fuel tanks are empty & stabilized, the batteries are in the basement,trickle charge them every month to keep them ready.

    I have Medical issues of an "Incurable nature, according to the Doctors" On Chemo Drugs and not able to physically launch, recover the boat on the trailer. Any of you guys want to get involved? Possibly Partners financial and/or Working. Could use some real hands on help with this if your local. Hate to sell the boat but will consider offers. Maine is really Cold in winter Stay Tuned! Lets make this happen for Spring 2017.

     Hey Dude, we think alike, kinda...out here in West Texas we have Mesquite bushes that defiy any weed whacker made. They are the toughest little $#@&$#(*&$(@*#&$ you can try and cut...Until I got creative...Definitely not OSHA approved though

    I'm thinking this same think would work well for the larger branches on the trees.  May have to give it a try.

    WARNING. Yes it works but it will grab and yank it away from you at times. BE VERY CAREFUL, I speak from experience (no blood, just a cut water tank)


    Use a finer toothed blade (plywood blade) or run the blade in reverse.  That'll fix the yankinbut will also cut slower.

    Working on some of the old tools from the Fire Station and cleaning them up here is the start of one.

    Getting it sanded down and cleaned up.

    Linseed Oil on the handle once it was sanded and smoothed out with a third sanding.

    Started the Second tool (Pike Pole)

    The end of the pike pole in Fire Engine Red.  And a High gloss over the pole and pike (Tip) to finish them.

    Halagan Bar (I forgot to get a picture of it in rust) now in primer.

    The Fire Axe looked like this three days ago.

    Sanded it down and smoothed out most of the handle.  

    Second layer of primer.

    First layer of Fire Engine Red waiting for it to dry while posting this so I can put on a second layer on.
