    - I teach orchestra and music history in a public high school, and it's hard to tell where the job ends and the hobby starts. Since I can't sing or dance but love opera and ballet, I guess those are my musical spectator sports.

    - Playing cello is still a hobby because I keep getting calls for horn gigs (my major instrument in college).

    - Baseball. My wife likes baseball in theory, but isn't too thrilled about it in real life.

    - Long walks with the wife to make up for the baseball.

    - Old-time radio.

    - Write if you get work.

    - Hang by your thumbs.

    I own a nice mineral collection and try to go dig or mine for them whenever I can. We also try to see as many concerts as possible, was once a tour kid that travelled from state to state show to show seeing what would be the remaineds of the Grateful Dead. Big on hiking and camping... but now my biggest hobby is workin on the home before the little one is born.

    Went to a model rocket launch last weekend, and have now joined the High Power Association..yep, got the bug again after 25 years from being away from it. Ordered my first rocket this week and will do my Level 1 Certification flight at the December launch and take the Level 2 written test at the same time. This is what I'm going to do for those not familiar with it.

    -Anything involving horses and outdoors: mountain riding, training horses, cowboy challenge competitions, spending weeks in the backcountry with nothing but what I hauled in on the horses.

    Computer-everything, Gaming, Classic Heavy Metal, Reading, Writing, Swimming, Sunbathing, Movies and TV. I have progressing arthritis from a car crash in '79 including broken back and spine, so I can't do all the cool outdoors things I used to love.

    As requested here are the 'barn restoration' pics. I've just bought the property. The barn is getting re-roofed, but the structure is in great shape. The ground floor will be typical barn: stalls, tack room, utility room, but the top will be a 2 story living area, with the west side having lots of glass. I'm contracting out the roofing, but will do all the interior myself. Included a picture of the view I'll have from the top part of the barn, sitting on my balcony with a good pipe watching the sun go down!

    music - my first love, I like it all and play almost all: classical, jazz, hip hop, singer songwriter/folk, reggae, ska, salsa, metal, etc. etc., I'm a trumpet and bass player (see below)
    composing music - something i hope to do more of once i finish school for the second time
    writing fiction - i wrote a novel for national novel writing month last year and I'm pretty proud of it. it comedic, but I'd like to write a sprawling epic like LOTR/The Dark Tower/His Dark Materials for my next attempt.
    making art miscellaneously - I have lots of artists friends and sometimes I get the bug to do it myself. mostly painting and papier mache
    learning Spanish and German - my wife is fluent/near fluent in the latter
    more video games than I'd like to admit

    it should be noted that all of these are on hold while I work towards a master's ...

    Oh blimey. At the moment I'm more into my baritone which is a forward facing Degg (a discontinued marching instrument) with a mouthpiece that I've had for 25 years. It has no markings but I "borrowed" it from music class when I was at school and never returned it! It's slightly smaller than standard bar/euphonium mouthpieces which makes higher notes easier.

    My personal instrument, finance nearly paid lol is a Bach New York extra large bore cos I'm a noisy bugger! I have a bob reeves cj2 mouthpiece for nice soft jazz ballads and a schilke 6a4z for when I'm dreaming that I can play like Maynard ferguson!

    I really want a new trumpet ... saving up. I play a Bach Stradivarius Model 37, but my mouthpiece is exciting: Asymmetric Lead 342. It has really increased my range w/o significant sacrifice to endurance.

    In addition to the growing interest and use of pipes I also enjoy:

    -Collecting and using fountain pens. They have the same ability as pipes to slow life down just enough and return you to the basics of thought and words
    -Love to travel, mostly to the European continent but expanding the horizons as of late
    -Reading is also a favorite, mostly geopolitics and government such as Churchill, John Quincy Adams, John Lewis Gaddis, Fareed Zakaria, and FDRs ways
    -In music I enjoy the classics, classic rock, and especially jazz and some blues, most specifically of late Melody Gardot, Diana Krall, Patricia Barber
    -Researching World War II and Cold War history, especially that of resistance groups, the OSS and SOE
    -30s and 40s era - movie genre, Clippers, radios, music, etc.

    Best and respect to all,

    Ok, I'll play.

    -My #1 passion in life is my horse and training/riding. I only do trail riding these days and love to take him camping, but back in the day I was an advanced and ever expanding student of the disciplines of Dressage, Jumping, Reining and the flat Pleasure division classes. Now that I'm "older", I have my very first Tennessee Walker, and let me tell you the smooth-as-glass traveling gaits are nothing to shake a stick at.

    -Camping with or without the horse, as mentioned above

    -I've played piano since the age of 9, but life has gotten in the way so that it has been on/off here and there for the last 10 years. I'm in the process of getting my piano moved into my new house so that I can play at will.

    -I've played the flute since age 11 and still enjoy getting it out here and there.

    -Motorcycles. I ride my own, and love it.

    -Bicycling is another hobby that I really enjoy.

    -Hiking

    -Boating

    That's all that comes to mind, but there are others I'm sure.

    I used to play the piano, trumpet, guitar, bass guitar, and DJ with turntables, but I've lost the passion I had for music. I really enjoy classical though.

    I love fishing, I also am big into fish keeping. I also love animals, I have a dog, cat, 2 fish tanks, a chameleon, a gecko, and a ball python, plus I breed insects for food for my reptiles (crickets and mealworms). I like to cook on occasion, and gaming. But really I'm too busy and tired from working constantly to sit back and enjoy hobbies lately. My pipe hobby is my most active one at the moment. I also am big into the traditional latin Mass and prayer.

    Add arguing with liberal minded folk about religion and politics to that, especially anonymously on the internet. I love to troll white nationalists and neo-nazi types on internet forums. I'm at a level of trolling it's borderline internet terrorism from the results I get from it, alot of them think I'm a paid internet troll that works for the Israeli government, only I just do it for the lolz. I stay good on this board though surprisingly and keep it to pipes.

    ...especially anonymously on the internet.

    LOL A great pastime.

    Hmm....Pipes of course. Now the history of pipes. I am envious of those who have musical talent as the only thing I play is the radio. Writing. Managed to crank out three books and a bunch of shorts.

    ...same ability as pipes to slow life down just enough and return you to the basics of thought and words

    +1 and then some.

    Downhill skiing,
    Hiking with my dog,
    Woodworking, canbinet making and log funiture.

    When my first wife threw me out I decided to start skiing, I eventually became dam good, I've skied many, many double blacks, and even worked 10 years as a ski instructor.

    When my last wife threw me out I decided to take up a hobby, woodworking. Now most of my furniture is hand made and I branched out into log furnitue.

    I've had other things like biking, both pedal and motercyle, scuba, backpaking in the Rockies, etc. but most are memories now.

    Me, too. My wife and I live just outside Washington, D.C. and we're very lucky to have several options in that direction. Our parish has a missa cantata every Sunday - everything from chant to Palestrina to Dutilleux when the schola's feeling froggy...

    Playing guitar
    Writing poetry
    Writing novels
    Sailboating/canoeing
    Fishing when I can
    Been diving into Graphology a bit lately
    Studying theology
    And perhaps one of my favorite hobbies would be
    Studying/learning foreign languages (Spanish, French, German, Russian, Japanese, Chinese, and Italian)
    It's my goal to one day be fluent in all of those, so far the closest I've got is Spanish. But when I move to Mexico for a year I'm sure it will improve.

    I know I've posted somewhere in this thread before, but I'm working on another guitar right now. I've been putting this one off for literally a few years, so it's exciting to be in the home stretch...Picture is of the wet-sanding last weekend.

    Year round I'm a voracious reader, mostly history (post US War of the Rebellion and Irish history)or well chosen biographies. I'm very selective regarding any fiction, it has to light with no underlying messages from the author. I remember reading Moby Dick and and thinking that it was a great sea story. Then a teacher ruined it by trying to dissect it. Fiction for diversion and history for personal edification.

    In summer, spring, and fall, meat and it's reaction to wood smoke is a consuming passion. God bless the pig! And the Steer! Not so much the chicken or the sheep.

    Quiet. Also painting, drawing, sculpture and photography. Used to enjoy fast motorcycles, but nobody will give me a driver's license.

    OK in no particular order:
    Astronomy.
    Photography - primarily wildlife.
    Theology with a focus on Apologetics.
    Desert camping (fits in with the astronomy).
    Hockey ( L A Kings fan) - used to play roller but too old now :-).
    Drinking good beer.
    Cooking with barbeque and grilling my favorite.
    World War II history.
    Birding.
    Hanging out with family and good friends.
    And as of September 17th spending time with my new granddaughter.
    The best part is my wife shares most of these hobbies with me. I am truly blessed.

    Ah, the joy of pulling a hobby out of retirement. I used to make knives, but quit cuz it's hard to do with one hand. Friend asked if I would replace a handle on a knife.

    Normally this is about as hard as polishing a pipe, but noooo. He delivered a beautiful old Western Boulder, Colorado knife circa the 40's. They didn't use a full tang, nor a hidden tang or even a rat-tail. A full H-tang that hasn't seen use in about sixty years. Almost done having replaced it with Indian Water Buffalo horn. Only three weeks worth of work.

    Figured as I was back in the groove I would make up a nice Damascus tanto for myself.
