You and Julie better come and stay with us in Oz then and we'll send you home with some good old Aussie Coke... I wonder if our Coke swirls out of the bottle/can in the opposite direction here???:D

I have spent years collecting old family letters and photos and other genealogy related information. Found some interesting stuff. This should not be confused with my amateur ob-gynecology practice I had several years ago.

Let's see.  Running, hunting, hiking, snowshoeing, camping, canoeing, pop bottles (painted or molded labels only, 432 at current count), cuckoo clocks, home brewing, yard work (evolved into "forestry" when we moved to Maine), reading/learning, shooting, archery, woodwork, electronics, restoring furniture, home repair/remodel (an odd "hobby" perhaps, but it's something I enjoy), antiquing (junkin'), volunteering in the community, and stuff with the B.P.O. Elks.  The ones I've forgotten I tried once and didn't like, so these are not necessarily daily, weekly, or even monthly things I / we enjoy doing, but I've been doing a lot of them since I was a kid, and we've been doing most of them we've been married, 33 years ago.  The missus likes to bake/cook, too.  I can (depending on who you ask), but other than grilling or smoking, I don't like to. 

Busy guy! Do you ever sleep?

Casper 50 - thanks,  I don't do anything full time anymore!

Brent B3B - God's country for sure. And yes, I wet a line from time to time.

I seem to spend only a small amount of my spare time on my old MOPAR trucks these days as my main hobby seems to keep me very busy.

 

My hobby involves collecting and supplying medical and educational supplies to third world countries. We (Mom and I) have a few hospitals who are kind enough to supply us with large amounts of stock which we bundle up in shipping containers and send them around the world. Those stocks pretty much include anything which you would find at a hospital, and then school desks/chairs and school library books on the educational side. We have recently been working on countries like New Guinea, Fiji, Africa and Indonesia. This past week has been quite busy for me... I have been on vacation leave from work and frantically working on readying stock for a 40 foot shipping container which leaves for Cambodia on Monday. I have a full shed and 5 shipping containers in our yard at present! My fellow Officer's laugh when I tell them I only go in to work for a break as I seem to do far more work when I'm off duty... it's quite funny but so true!

Looks great!! I need to build one.. Here's a pic of my latest amp project. Originally a Lowell P.A. amp, solid state rectifier, 2 12AX7 pre-amp tubes and 2 6L6 outputs. If it doesn't work out I'll probably build a Deluxe out of it.

Wow! Amazing work. I wouldn't  know where to start on that. Here's another cigarbox guitar with amp. A much simpler amp than yours. Uses a 9volt battery.image.jpg.df3e358dc996e4afbccf8c59ecbaf648.jpg
