What are your favorite things to do with free or off-work times?

besides sleeping, which most everyone needs more time doing, i love to spend several leisurely hours in a used book store, browsing the shelves, selecting bargain books to take home with me, and spend even more leisurely hours at home, curled up on the sofa, perusing my newly found book store treasures....

Free time? What is it? I do not remember having free time for the last 7 years at least. Ahh.

Shellfishing, bread baking, and generally getting underfoot in the kitchen from mid November through late May / early June. Doing investment research from an air conditioned bedroom and weeding, watering during the dog days of July through August. A little striped bass and bluefish fishing during September through November.

I like to sit in front of the TV and drink beer.

Do I hear an, aw hell yeah!?



I don't have any free time. I try to get away in spurts though. Riding my bike clears my head the quickest of anything, but it's been so darn hot I don't feel like changing out of my shorts into jeans and boots... so I settle for the TV and beer

Pac, I must ask, is one of your faves dressing up your dog? I keep meaning to ask about your profile pic, is it your dog and how did you get him to pose like that?

Love that pic!

Of course, Aw Hell Yeah!

LOL, no... no clothes on my dogs. Not even a jacket in the winter, but I do appreciate the folks who do keep their poochies stylin'.
I scarfed that pic off the internet. It seemed to fit with my username and the forum.

Oh no! Still love the pic!

Beagle got two lovely light-up Christmas sweaters from her "Nana" (my mom) several years ago, and when we put them on her, she looked like a deflated tire. Hates the clothing. I had planned on stenciling TSA on her reversible camo/orange raincoat in order to get her into the airport, but she tries to wipe the coat off and refuses to wear it.

Favorite for Free Time...bike riding, farmer's market, continuing education, reading, cooking, hikes, vegging out and every once in a while I say Hi to Shrek.
