    I want to know what other interests everybody has. I know that ya'll like cattin' but what else do really enjoy doing to relieve the stress of daily life and the reoccuring dream of making another dollar?

    I guess since I'm starting the thread I'll break the ice.

    If I'm not on the river, then I'm in the gym training for another event. I compete as a strongman and have the National Championships coming up on Nov. 5, 2005 in Louisville Kentucky. www.kentuckymuscle.com

    When I'm not training, I love being at home and being a huge couch potato, playing with my little girl and spending time with her and my lovely wife.

    I enjoy playing poker, watching all kinds of sports and eating good food. And a little interaction with the opposite sex can be tolerated every now and then.

    ROTFLMAO at the bolded remark above.

    Let's see I listen to lots of music when I'm not in a blue funk and then I listen to nothing, not even myself. I love to find new artists to listen to and research. I go to concerts when I can and am able to get away from work. I enjoy long weekends with my soulmate just exploring a new town or relaxing in a jacuzzi. I work in my flowers alot in the spring, till it gets too hot, then I just water them. Rake leaves and burn them in the fall. Matter of fact, I like to make a pile of anything, just to burn it. Not sure if I'm a little pyro or just learned to love it as a teenager when I was in charge of keeping the fire going while camping. Love to read when I can find the time. Play on the net. Fishing has been too little this year due to other priorities in life.

    Somewhere in all that I try to pay attention to 9 cats and 2 Pomeranians. They are more neglected attention wise than anything else, due to the long hours I work sometimes. They eat well and have a roof over their heads and have other animals for companionship. As you can tell, I feel guilty for not giving them enough attention, but I do the best I can when time allows.

    I love to watch birds, chipmunks, squirrels, etc. I feed them in the winter. I have a chipmunk that lives out front and has gotten brave enough to start looking in my front door. LOL.

    Well now perhaps we should start a post of WHAT WE DON'T like to do?
    :D

    I always like a good fire. I could sit around a camp fire all night. Not junk stinky fires, I like a good wood smelling crackling fire. I got about 50 or so trees in my yard and they don't drop limbs fast enough to keep up with my fire building. Now fall leaves kick my butt around my house. LOL. I can't cut my own wood like I use too, maybe a little here and there. Son cuts some and gets loads off the pipe line. I got a couple trees that died and need cutting. I also buy a core of wood for my back porch wood stove. Aint notning like sitting on the bank with a good fire and wife. Sometimes we fish too. LOL.
    I've had one going everyday this week, siting outside at sunset, watching everything. Couldn't sleep last nigh and was out there till past midnight stoking up the fire. I'm not a pyro, just enjoy a camp fire. :D
    I aint much of a people person. Crowds aint my thing. Football BBQ day is different. LOL>

    That's a relief, I was afraid it might be something "cheesy."
