After seeing so many others do these Meme things I figure it's about time for ME to give you a few facts about ME.
I HATE to be interrupted when working on something. This wasn't always the case, but since I can no longer multi-task due to some brain malfunction, I have a hard time concentrating on what I am doing.
I ADORE my grandchildren and get very frustrated when they have to put up with a GRUMPY GRANDPA.
I LOVE to cook, but hate to clean up the messes I make while doing so. I don't do dishes. (well not that often anyway, may 2-3 times a year, if I have to)
I like to build things. But not the same thing twice. Woodworking is my favorite hobby, I just don't have a shop to do it in or I would do little else. Some of my other hobbies are collecting foreign money, knives, old bottles, and various other "junk"(as my wife calls it). I like to engrave glass, re-build old guns (especially old military rifles), build plastic models, make fishing supplies and reload ammunition.
I go fishing when I can and dream of hunting again.
I enjoy genealogy and have done a lot of work on my family tree and corrupted others into starting their own. Family and it's roots are important to me. I lay claim to my 1/4 Irish-Norman heritage but am just as proud of my 1/2 Hungarian one. I am also 1/4 Welsh-English transplants from France.
I dress comfortably not for looks. If I'm not in my dirty ripped up "grubbies" then I must be dressed up for company. Shoes are worn only if absolutely necessary. And I shave only when I "have" to. If left up to me I would look like I belonged to ZZ Top. Yes I could be a hillbilly, and if not for my wife keeping me in check, probably would be. I've eaten porcupine, raccoon, muskrat, and rattlesnake, but don't know if'fn I could eat 'possum.
I've made homemade wine so I suppose settin' up a still and makin' 'shine wouldn't be out of the question.
If I could get my family to join me I would pack up and move to Arizona or New Mexico, away from cold weather and high humidity.
I've read enough books to fill a library.
My computer is my friend and keeps me in touch with my "family".
