I found, over the years, that hobbies are a way to de-stress, relax and have fun all at the same time. Playing Poker may well be a hobby for some people. I know everyone has a hobby of some sort. Some people have more than one hobby. I have several hobbies, which I do to keep myself busy, and yes, poker is one of them. I also ride horses, umpire Little League baseball and softball and I fly, as I am a private pilot. I would love to hear some of your hobbies.
Thank you for sharing @Pilot704!
I enjoy taking photos of my family and places I get to visit. I am not great but I’m good at not giving up 'til I get the image I want. I also collect vinyl records and I like to re-organize and clean them to make sure there’s no dust and static. I find it very therapeutic as I carefully handle each one of them to make sure they’re always in mint condition.
I read, knit, pull weeds, cook, and hang out with friends with similar hobbies. I wish I were capable of a unique, amazing hobby (like being a private pilot, for example–amazing, Pilot704!), but that would just make me (more) vain, right? I stick with the stuff my grandmothers did for drudgery, but for me–it’s mostly hobby stuff.
Hockey, golf, mixed martial arts, target shooting, poker, video games, and wrestling grizzly bears.
(I think that last item was supposed to be posted in “Two truths and a lie” thread.) lol
I work much so after poker i love to be in the nature,fishing,go out with the boat!! Love to play Chess and also lissend to music!
depending on the season. I like to hunt mushrooms, Go prospecting for gold and Platinum and am a rockhound also like fishing. and sometimes I chase skirts.
I enjoy line dancing and the spin off social side which has evolved from that, and experimenting in the kitchen providing I have it all to myself! Walking beside any kind of water and observing nature all around me, taking a book and finding a grassy bank to sit and read it, simple things but to me they are all relaxing and clear the head. Oh yes, I play the occasional game of poker and have recently learned and enjoy playing Canasta!
Oooh–I, too, like Canasta, but I have trouble finding someone to play it with me. I guess you’ll just have to come to California for a weekend of Canasta with me!
My hobbies are reading and I also collect banknotes. Back in the younger days fished and cross country skiing. Replay poker is big also, I play to relax.
Have a place in grant’s pass oregon ,puit you up any time JanCee Also a friend
So cool! I see some fishing in your avatar. Looks very familiar–very Oregon!
I umpired for 15 years until an on-field injury ended that. Miss it terribly.
I love writing, almost anything baseball-related, and listening to old-time radio. I am particularly a fan of shows like “Yours Truly, Johnny Dollar”, “Dragnet”, and “I Was a Communist for the FBI.”
Walking, hiking, birding, reading and of course poker, but poker is really like going to school; you learn self-control, respect, PATIENCE, and all about human nature. I love the thrill of a winning hand, it does not get old.
My hobbies tend to be seasonal and weather dependent. Walking, gardening (growing seeds, mowing) , reading, animated Christmas lighting and doing whatever my wife tells me to do. The occasional poker game.
