Besides gambling, do you have any hobbies?

    OK, gambling per se isn't necessarily a "hobby", and I realize it can be an addiction to some. But the gist is "what do you do for fun in your free time?" :):):)


    I collect model airplane kits (and actually build some). Also, I'm trying to learn photography. I'm not very good, but it's fun!

    Golf,fishing,hanging out with friends and Mrs. JG. Working my pt gig ,consider it a hobby of sorts because it's mostly fun,gets me out of the house and allows me to go places see stuff and hang out with a fun crew of guys.I'm not into gardening,home projects, woodworking ,taking care of my finances. I do all that stuff but it's not fun to me .

    I used to play golf but got so tired of the humiliation that I quit about 10 years ago.

    I like to fish but the last time I went, I fell and broke my leg.

    I watch a lot of streaming television.

    I am a Flyers fanatic.

    I watch a lot of football.

    I drink my share of beer.

    I have a bunch of interests outside of gambling and Vegas. I like to travel places that don't have casinos. :eek: I like to knit and crochet. I love anything related to dog training and animal behavior. I'm also a fan of the true crime genre and usually have a couple of books and several TV shows on the subject waiting for me to have some free time.

    I've collected sports memorabilia for about 40 years. Oh yeah, my 90 pound, all muscle high energy German Shepard mix keeps me pretty busy, have to get him out somewhere to run wild every day or he'll start tearing up the house. Literally.....

    Gambling isn't a hobby, it's a some-time diversion. We'll plink at VP for a couple hours, I'll play some low-stakes blackjack, but the only time we gamble is in Nevada and many days we don't gamble at all.

    Family, travel, golf, bicycling, cooking, wine, friends, writing (though that's also my profession). I do need to pick up the camera again.

    No...

    Just kidding.

    I enjoy traveling, golf, working out, kayaking, hiking, good drinks and eats. Like ken, I too need to pick up the camera again soon. Used to do a lot more photography.

    I used to deep sea fish. Loved it. Health issues made me decide to stop. I would love to shoreline fish but Hawaii's beaches (Oahu to be exact) are so saturated with surfers, divers, kayakers, sailboarders, paddleboarders, and men, women, and children of all sizes and shapes pissing and defecating into the pristine waters also made me stop. Yuck. There might be a few places left but Oahu is not the paradise it used to be.

    I digress.

    All I do now is work. And look forward to Vegas trips solo and with my Wife. I gotta find another hobby. I like gardening but sometimes I'm too tired to do it after coming home from work. When I retire I'll probably spend more time on it.

    I'll probably go on paid fishing expeditions to Alaska and deep sea charters after retirement. I still love to fish.

    I like to play golf, but I gamble on that with my buddies. I also like to fish, and we usually find a way to gamble on that too.

    So....no?
