Buying cars at car shows is a middle age thing. LOL

I wear cut-offs and go bare foot. I have been known to walk through mud puddles and wade in the river.

For the last how many years I've been growing my hair long "one last time" and have been having fun learning new styles.

Spend a generous amount of time at the beach reading and swimming.

This is my forty-first year of riding motorcycle and there are a lot of us still out there.

I still like to ride the rides at the fair.

But sometimes it's surprising to find out I can no longer do what I think I can. One day I was sitting on my front porch and two neighborhood girls walked by to show off their hula hoops. "Oh, I can do that" I said.

I thought it would be like riding a bike but every time I tried the hoop just dropped onto the grass. Lesson learned? Hoop while you are young, Kids.

I snow ski, stand up paddle board, listen to current music loudly, take marijuana edibles and take 2 hours hikes by the beach.

I love ziplining. The more extreme the better. A couple of years ago, I went on a series of ziplines in Costa Rica, one of which was 4000 feet long, over a gorge. The day almost killed me, but it was oh so worth it.


I just gave up rollercoasters because the doctor said I'd have to choose between rollercoasters and my retinas and as fond as I am of rollercoasters, I'm even fonder of my retinas.


Inside this somewhat-decrepit 72-year-old body dwells a 12-year-old daredevil who gets me in trouble a lot.

When in a store with a toy section, I always go through it and press all the "try me" buttons. Sometimes see how many I can get going at one time.

If the conditions are right, squeal my shoes on the polished floor.

Non-childish..

Ride my motorcycle around the country still.

I build car audio systems. Not the thump thump type with the booming bass. But high end sound quality systems in cars. I love testing for placement then building, fiber glassing, reupholstering, wiring, cutting.... you name it.

Another creative outlet is pastel drawing. I have always been artistic and love getting my hands all dirty with pastels painting.

I also play a bunch of video games. Mostly first person shooters like Destiny 2 or Apex Legends.

And lastly I'm a metalhead. Love my music loud. Iron Maiden, Motorhead, Dream Theater, Savatage...

I like it and keeps me youngish.

My children say they don't like talking on the phone. Me too. So WhatsApp is how we stay in contact and it's FREE. Love it when travelling.

I listen to some modern music and like it a lot (not all)
I do pub crawls on occasion - lots of new breweries.
Hiking and fly fishing (not young, really)
Road trips (solo) just to see new stuff
Too much time on the internet
I watch the night sky and marvel at the heavens
I take classes and attend lectures
