    What is your favourite past time or hobby?

    Anything that interest you.

    Aside from reading being my favorite hobby, I make jewelry. Or perhaps I should say that I design and put together jewelry. I specialize in Swarovski crystals and sterling silver, but I've branched out into natural stones and pre-made metals, too.  I haven't had the time to take classes in metal work or other really serious art jewelry. If I ever retire from my job and don't wait until my hands are too arthritic, I would like to take some classes in more serious jewelry making at our arts center. I learned to solder when I was young and working in a factory.
    I've been making jewelry since I was about seven or eight years old. We kids would find the brightly colored telephone wires discarded near poles where wire repairs were made. We made jewelry from the wires, and our parents laughed and tolerated our "fancy" jewelry. Lo, and behold, about 10 years ago, this same wire jewelry became a national fad, and this discarded wire sold for a premium in stores. So I guess my best friend and I got the last laugh.

      Good for you MizBejabbers, at least you are also making money out of your hobby. I like crocheting as well but I don't often crochet now. My spare time has been hijacked by the laptop.

      Linda, good for you, too. My mother used to crochet like a fiend. I value the pieces I inherited from her. I learned to crochet when I was a child, but a serious hand injury keeps me from crochet or knitting. Thanks for the Best Answer selection.

    As my Better Half would text, for John since he has just passed "Go" for the 11th 1/2 decade it is still ice hockey. It plays John like a religion. Yes indeed I did text, it plays John... Thus he passes time and significantly enjoys skating in full-equipment with a stick in his hand, chasing after a hard plastic and black disk usually made in Eastern Europe...

      Good for you John, if you enjoy hockey so be it. That's what life is all about to have fun as well now and again.

      Thank you, Linda; growing up in Canada influenced me in this regard. I began to skate at 3 and was allowed to play hockey at age 4. Now that I am 5 for the 11th time I am beginning to feel lighter on my skates...

      I think it keeps you fit John, I admire people who keep doing what they enjoy and help them health wise. It is a good exercise.

      A matter of fact, it is also good  for brain health. Dr John Medina in his NY Best Seller writes about the optimum condition for cognition for humans. It is simply making quick decisions while engaged in aerobic activity & changing direction...
