How many 'hats' do you wear ?

I admit that i jostle a lot of 'em but there are a few that i actualy tend to keep on fer a spell at a time.
The few that i find 'wearin' most are woodworkin, gardenin' and guns.
Lately for me it's been that ole gardenin and gun hat.
That's why i hven't been here in a while.
Diggin, plantin', buyin and shootin/smithin' have been fillin my time as of late.( also been tendin' to that litter o' Rottie pups )
I find that once the mood for one o' these 3 'hats' hits me that i seem to concetrate on that subject fer a spell while ignorin the others.
I recently aquired a new fascination with buyin and shootin black powder pistols So has my wife
I know.No pic..i didn't happen.
Here's my latest purchase.
How many 'hats' do you wear ?-copy-p1210349a.jpg
And i'm ponderin this one.
How many 'hats' do you wear ?-1858.jpg
My list o' 'hats' include the 3 meantioned above, motorcycle ridin', metal detectin',gold pannin',guitar playin,snake husbandry,fleach racketin' and doin gun shows.
And, used ot be professional gunsmith but now i jist tinker.

Soo, how many other 'hats' ya got 'sides the one covered with saw dust ?

I'm gonna go see now what i've been missin here.

Oh yeah, is The High Road a sister sight to this one ?

My big 4 are skydiving, hunting, woodwerkin , and guns. So far I've managed to make money at hunting. Now if I could do the same with the other 3, I could throw away the work hat...lol. Thinking of trying a Taxidermist hat on for size to.

Of late the only hat I wear is a wide brimmed straw hat to cut the lawn. But, I've never really been a hat guy. I've had my fill of hats over the years...

Cub Scouts
Boy Scouts
Army "C" cap
Army Saucer cap
Army steel pot
Army "boonie"
Army Green Beret
Motorcycle helmet
Race car helmet
Ball cap (for the pits)

I don't wear a hat at the range. One of my favorites...

Guns, cars and woodworking.

Historically I tend to do something for a while, and move on once I've get bored....I suspect woodworking is gonna stick cuz there are so many different ways you can head. I suspect raising a family has had as much impact on my hobbies as anything....next thing I know, I'm old!

In a former life I was into high end audio pretty heavily. I started a local audio club, then started a business making high end speakers.

I use to water ski 40 or 50 times a summer...which is a lot for a guy who lives in a region where the ponds freeze 4-5 months out the year.

I also used to brew beer...it's been a while, but I'd like to do another batch before I die.

I've always enjoyed setting up my dad's old Lionel train around the Christmas tree. Last year I set up a more permanent layout with 4 tracks....nothing fancy, just a big board with 4 layouts. I'll stop short of calling it a new hobby, but it gives something to putter with during the winter.

Wow, lots of gun lovers here. This is not a crowd to rob.

Well, since I have a 1 year old girl and another on the way, all hats except dad (including wood worker) have pretty much gone out the window. I looking forward to someday having hobbies again, but I suspect it won't be for awhile. (totally worth it, though)

All of them

Measure Twice Cut Once -- It's a lot easier to cut more off then it is to cut MORON.

Their are a few on that list I find interesting. " Fleach racketin' is that legal and what is it.

Snake husbandry, I suppose that would come in handy for the Snake Oil.
