    What are your other hobbies other than vaping?

    Mine, I paint and draw. Go for walks everyday. Listen to music and make playlists. Play with my kids. Throw dance parties in the middle of the living room with them.

    What are some of yours?

    I read like a fiend. Thank goodness for Kindle Unlimited, saves me so much money. I just have to look through a lot of skanky books to find good things to read.

    What type of books interest you? My favorite book is a poetry book by rupi kaur called milk and honey.

    Other than that I don’t have time to read because my kids keep me busy!

    Photography, although I haven't picked up my camera in a couple of years due to lack of time. Vaping has become a hobby. From gear to making juice.

    Every now and then I can find a volume of Mary Oliver's poetry in Kindle Unlimited. She is my favorite poet. Other than that I like some types of fantasy, literary fiction, true and not-so-true crime. Some young-adult stuff like the Harry Potter series. Some nonfiction history. I have Shelby Foote's Civil War series here, waiting for me to have a spare decade or two to spend reading it. :) Like some Eastern philosophies, Buddhist writings (Thich Nhat Hanh's poetry, oh my), Eckhart Tolle. A little of everything except books that have pictures of shirtless guys on the covers, or guys that look like Favio. Not that I don't like the fellas, but I've seen enough chests to last me, and I don't like reading trashy romance novels.

    The Way of Sunshine

    Precious gems are everywhere in the cosmos
    and inside of every one of us.

    I want to offer a handful to you, my dear friend.
    Yes, this morning, I want to offer a handful to you,
    a handful of diamonds that glow from morning to evening.
    Each minute of our daily life is a diamond that contains sky and earth,
    sunshine and river.

    We only need to breathe gently for the miracle to be revealed:
    Birds singing, flowers blooming.

    Here is the blue sky, here is the white cloud floating,
    your lovely look, your beautiful smile.
    All these are contained in one jewel.

    You who are the richest person on Earth
    and behave like a destitute son,
    please come back to your heritage.

    Let us offer each other happiness and learn to
    dwell in the present moment.
    Let us cherish life in our two arms
    and let go of our forgetfulness and despair.

    Thich Nhat Hanh

    Hmm, I read a lot, and most genres. Yes, Kindle Unlimited! I do beadwork, play with my kitty, cook with my hubby. I spend a bunch of time on the laptop.

    Exercise, Frisbee and guitar. Between that and my family, it takes all of my time.

    I String beads. My wife sets the design and I streaming to the appropriate length put on the clasps. We use only natural material beads, no plastic or anything. A lot of semi-precious. We do some nice work with freshwater pearls and .925 silver beads.
    I also do some leather work. Nothing serious just pouches and whatnot. When I first started vaping I made some leather mod covers. Which looking back we're kind of gaudy. But I got a bunch of cool tools to do stuff with leather that I don't know how to do it yet. I do want to change the leather insert in my Aegis Legend. I wanted to be black but textured somehow.
    I wish I were more consistent in my frequency of being active and either of these Hobbies.

    I would love to get into leatherwork! It’s so interesting! And I don’t know how it’s done, but I love when leather has designs like stamped into it! I wish I could see some of you and your wife’s work! The jewelry sounds nice!

    I would post some pics but my phone is a five year old POS that takes the worst pics. The beadworks that I like the best is the simple stuff. It looks much more I don't know put together much more elegant. I've had some people have me string together some pretty busy stuff that was rather loud. But everybody has their own taste.

    Mainly drawing. Pen and ink. An artist friend of mine talked me into putting some of my drawings in her show and it was a lot of fun. I’ve done a couple more shows since then but haven’t had a lot of time recently. Now that we’re moved into the new house I’m going to get back into it again.

    Hiking with my little lady, Zuzu. Enjoying the solitude and beauty, spotting various wildlife which is cool until my girl spots them too and chases them. I used to fish lots but not so much lately, I used to golf but my back can’t take that anymore unfortunately. Sleeping, napping, and all forms of slumber. Not to toot my own horn but I’m really good at sleeping. Oh! Don’t look now but here I go....told you I was good, good night y’all, sleep tight.

    My husband is a drummer! I’m not coordinated enough to do all that lol! It’s so confusing with moving your foot (or feet) and hands all at the same time! I can’t do it!

    Are you planning on getting a kit again?

    My wife and I enjoy reading as well. We read more then watch television. We can sit together and read different books at the same time and enjoy our being quiet and together. It's like spending personal time with the person you want to be with the most. That's what we enjoy doing anyways.

    Many things... I do many things outside of vaping.

    I run, I weld, I break shit, I fix the shit I break, I indulge in the alcohol from time to time, I fish, I hunt, I roll around on the floor with my tiny human friend, and I work... A lot.

    That's my life outside of vaping.[​IMG][​IMG]

    I'm always interested in peoples ink. It's kind of like the story of them. I also don't want to seem pervy. Don't get me wrong I will be a dirty old man, but I'm still practicing. Have a lot of work to do.

    I do paracord projects... bracelets, watch bands, belts, a blinged out collar for my mom's little ankle biter, leashes, knives, and so on
    Here are a few of 'em
    [​IMG][​IMG]
    [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]
    Use to work with beads, mainly lighter cases. I impressed the hell outta of the Indian lady at a shop cuz I didn't use liners (whatever liners are) in the cases. I couldn't finish one because of carpal tunnel.

    Thank you :) A little of both. Some utube with the paracord, but I had to find my own way of doing them. On the beads that was self taught.

    Both my job and my hobby is restoring old vehicles. I also like to play xbox and games with my son. Riding motorcycles and working on them is something I enjoy too
