The boat is our other hobby. Occasionally for fishing, regularly for diving, most frequently for sundowners !
This has taught me more about mechanics, plumbing, AC and fibreglass than I had planned to learn, but still one of the most relaxing places to be..



Rottnest Island - our usual haunt



Handy parking for dinner on the Swan River



Last Easter at Jurien Bay

Normally my hobby is making broken things good again, im lucky enough to even do it for a living. Always had a spare car or something to work on. Be it the jag, or the boat the wife finally let me buy ( then ahe bought me a truck to tow it ) .
But lately, it seems my hobby is replacing my kitchen. I only finished it last jul, but a month ago i found that ice maker line to fridge had been leaking! Not fun at all, basically started over as the cabinets were discontinued, backsplash was destroyed whilst removing counters. Counters were also destroyed as it was butcher block, and was epoxied to cabinets... just a few pics for ya, plus a couple of my boat.. ( sure hope i like boating when i get it finished.. lol) Kitchen before the leak..
Other side
The culprit
The aftermath
Getting rid of mold the only real way!
Reassembly



Wife wanted coubter depth fridge this time.and new ovens to.match...
And finally... the boat..

I didn’t think of that as one of my hobbies, but we currently have 4 dogs that nobody wanted to adopt so they stayed with us (not bad considering over 50 dogs we found did get adopted). We’ve slowed down on the rescue work for now other than helping with fundraising until there’s more room in the house.

I keep and breed snakes and spiders. Here's a couple of them. A Russian ratsnake and a Goliath tarantula.

Thanks, it is VERY hard on the heart, since my biggest fault is caring too much for those I love.

I totally understand - it is probably a good thing my place is not bigger! THANK YOU SO MUCH for being an advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves

It varies; I used to be a makeup artist for Estee Lauder, I have a lot of firearms and like to target shoot, I work on my cars and motorcycles, I work as a software engineer and have computer interests, and I watch a lot of anime. I'm a huge fan of vintage anime, like Rose of Versailles and Galaxy Express 999; it eats up a decent amount of time.

Rescue dogs. We have had six of them since 1994. Just picked up a 16-month-old, 125-pound female Irish Wolfhound puppy this past Sunday. Her original owners in Florida started a new business, had no time for her, so she was spending 8 hours locked in a crate every day. We found out about her and volunteered to take her. We are retired so she is with us 24/7 now (along with our nearly 12-year-old male English Cocker Spaniel). She is already loving being here with us and we are so fortunate to have her....
