LMAO...no kidding. Go figure; I am into cars, fish, guns, politics, history, and shopping...I am like 6 people in one body. If I ever start referring to myself in the third person, then I'll be worried. :P

I guess there is a lot to be said about having well-rounded interests.

I have a hobby weirder than most anything- I collect animal skulls and bones, feathers, and tanned hides. I am a nature freak and an avid outdoorsperson, as well as a wildlife artist (I use my stuff for visual reference and studies)

My collection so far...I am always adding to it so let me know if you have something for me

skulls:
one very big wolf skull
four coyote skulls
one red fox skull
one very old domestic dog skull
one mountain lion skull
one very nice bull skull with horns
two whitetail buck skulls (one with antlers, one where the antlers are cut off)
one whitetail doe skull
one sheep skull (on the way from a friend in Utah)

bones:
lots of vertebrae, ribs, and leg bones from various critters including some from a horse and a bison.

a horse'* jaw, a bison jaw, and a mule deer jaw.

LOTS of antlers-whole sets, sheds, and individual sides.

hides:
1 dark brown rabbit fur
2 coyote hides
1 wolf/coyote cross hide
1 very huge white Arctic wolf hide (on the way)
(all of which were not trapped or ranched...stuff I don't believe in)

Here are some pics:

http://www.angelfire.com/art2/northw...tos/window.jpg (pure coyote on left, half wolf half coyote on right...he'* big!)

Yeah I know it grosses some people out (most people who get to know me think it'* pretty cool though) and that'* OK...I understand that taxidermied critters aren't everyone'* cup of tea. Take heart in knowing that I treat all of my things with utmost respect for the animal that gave it'* life so that I could learn from it.

Beat that for a weird hobby!!! (Other than this I am actually pretty normal!!!)

Automobiles period. I work on semis during the week and mess with my car on the weekends, every aspect of them, im slowly learning how to fix this or how to fix that one thing at a time. I can only think of 2 days where i havent worked on a vehicle in the past month, One was because i was sick and couldnt do anything, and the other was thanksgiving. As a matter of fact i gotta go to work and do it right now!!!

i love music, not great at playing it but im working on that, i currently play drums and guitar, but thats probably just the beginning

i also like anything having to do with computers, especially gaming, and i like fixing the buggers too.

i also enjoy outdoor activities, like hunting and fishing and all the other things your typical missouri farmboy would enjoy

and oh yeah cars, although i dont know that much about them, and i dont have extra money to spend on them, i like learning about them, and thinking mine is awesome!

Coins !
There is something about money that has always appealed to me.
Canadian money only. It'* more colourful. :P
I have every Proof set from 1963 to 2004 and a lot of older rare ones.
On Friday I purchased the 2004 $20. silver holographic special edition Iceburg Proof coin. It'* a beauty.

One of my pride and joys is a 1954 $2 Bill that was autographed by Rocky Marcianno after a boxing match in the 60'*.

My auto hobbies are obvious and between that, the internet, work, house and my family there is hardly enough time left for personal grooming.

geez, I thought long and hard about this post. I dont actually have ANYTHING that I would call a hobby. I got the automotive stuff, my daily life is usually just focused on day to day struggles LOL. I never have much time to relax or have fun.

Now, as for pasttimes, I have been a ham radio operator, active in our local police dept as a volunteer until life intruded. I spend what little "me" time I have at BC, home improvemnt websites or books, and planning for the perfect renovation of our home.

Future hobbies will include gardening, experimental solar power, and of course, still the cars/truck
