    Default Hobbies? Why, pets, of course!

    Speaking of hobbies, mine is taking care of my little Pomeranian, Ronald. When I'm stressed from work, I come home to this cuddly tyke, barking happily and begging for treats. I raised him since he was a pup and both of us have been tight throughout the years. We usually play catch in our backyard during my days off, though he isn't one to shy away from chilling out in his dog bed as well. Overall, hes a very loving companion. What are your other hobbies, fellas?

    Default Hobbies? Why, pets, of course!

    Greetings PaulCole!

    I can't get enough of open-exhaust, wide-open-throttle competition. I chase after the Outlaw Truck and Tractor Pulling Association events in the mid-west as a spectator.


    I also chase after the Nostalgia Drag Racing League events in the mid-west as a spectator.



    I do not own a pulling tractor, a pulling truck or drag car. I learned years ago from my buddies in racing that to make a small fortune in racing, you have to start with a large fortune. I am content just traveling to many race tracks during racing season to enjoy the sound of open exhaust headers on a brute force motor, the smell of a hot race car, the smell of spent exhaust (high octane gasoline, alcohol or nitromethane fuel), the smell of burnt rubber and the camaraderie of people just like me at the track!

    my only hobby is reading . it would appear that I lead a boring life , but after the stress of utility locating reading is the only thing that helps me come back to my senses . I read all types of different things but my favorite are biblical subjects .

    My new hobby is walking on the beach and counting tattoos on young women. I have avoided growing up and becoming my parents though it appears I have become Wingfoot.

    I do both uber and lyft. I have to work weekends because i go to a college town. But then I just take a day off someplace else. Since I do not have to make time for others it is okay. I no longer have to spend 5 hours on the weekend getting things done because I know I will not have daylight to do them. I piece meal them trough out the week. Depending when I get out I make between $18-26 hr a day. I am waiting for the UW badgers football to start. With the surge rate I am thinking I can make $25-30 easily. Sometimes I have made $35-46/hr in a 6 hr period. This week I put in 40/hrs in 5 days and averaged out to $22.50/hr. That is with most of the students gone right now. My medical and vision is covered by the VA. When i got fired I was making $17.85/hr.
