    I LOVE PAINTBALL!! I used to play on a semi pro level team, we all shot Autocockers, Angels and Automags. I haven't played in a while though. It's tough to find time for it anymore.

    I do enjoy wrenching on my old Datsuns though.

    SAILING. That comes first and foremost, even if I do spend all my other time on boats. After that I enjoy playing with potato guns, blowing things up, shooting real guns, drawing boats, and last but certainly least MOVIES. I'm a HUGE cinephile. That hobby works quite well in the wintertime when some of my other hobbies are more difficult.

    As I was a walkin' down London Road I come to Paddy West's house. He gave me a feed of "American hash" and he called it "Liverpool Scouse". He said, "There's a ship who's wantin' hands, and on 'er ye'll quickly sign! The mate is a bastard, the bos'un's worse but she will suit ye' fine!

    I write, not a diary rather short stories. I've been doing it off and on since I first started sailing and only for myself. I have no interest to see any published, doubtful it could. It is intriguing to travel back a half century and read how a 22 year old man saw the world, at least in fiction form, then realize that same young man is now a 72 year old geezer. Oh yes, forgot to mention, 90% of my writing is fiction.

    I enjoy reading a wide variety of books, mostly fiction but also non fictional historical novels. Currently I'm reading Stephen E. Ambrose's "Crazy Horse and Custer," both men shared venomous similarities, both were doomed. In my guts I know Custer knew it, as well as Crazy Horse. The difference being Crazy Horse did it for his people, Custer only for himself.

    My dogs and I go for a long (or short) walks up a mountain trail, weather permitting, I use snow shoes when required.

    Downhill skiing is also fun although it seems I find myself less and less and the slopes these days.

    I check-out several forums, gCaptain is one, there are others, mostly dealing with military and aviation history.

    I repair defective gadgets in my home, washing machines and such comes to mind, I leave the dish washer for someone else to handle, or buy a new one. I'm not a masochist.

    I'm involved politically, never on gCaptain's forum. Best we leave our guns at the door. Yes, I have guns and that's all you need to know.

    It's obvious, isn't it, I'm retired.

    Cheers

    Snow boarding/shoeing, mountain biking, hiking, camping. Used to landscape and garden, but not enough time and a regular schedule for it. That may change very soon. BTW, nice job. Pretty brindle Topsail.
