  • Not So Idle Hands...

    Frankiarmz thread made me think of things that keep your hands and mind from getting to idle.

    This is one of mine. Easy boys, I'm an amateur and considered mediocre for my area and know it. What are your hobbies that keep you from being "idle"?

          I have a 2 year old to enjoy when i'm not at work. The wife and I also play World of Warcraft. "that's how we met" When we finally get caught up on some bills a few of the walls in this house are going to shift around.

          oh, and the bulldog, can't forget that guy, He LOVES him some fetch.
          No, it's not rocket science, it's plumbing and unlike rocket science it requires a license.

            Mediocre for your area? You must be in some great area! That was really enjoyable J.C., post more. Both of my daughters play guitar and it's wonderful to hear them master a tune. My oldest learned "From the Beginning" by Emerson, Lake and Palmer. Good stuff. I hate to say that for a guy with time on his hands, I don't have the patience to play. I also tore up a finger in a bench grinder years ago, so I would be at a disadvantage. Excuses, excuses...

                I went to college for music, but quickly realized I would never have the type of lifestyle I wanted doing that, so I stuck with plumbing. I still play a lot of piano and trombone to keep me entertained though.

                      Here is a link for him. Says he had all his fingers but two were curled and would not open. My pinky fingerhad a damaged extensor tendon, same thing will not open, extend. Like I said, that's my excuse.

                        I thought about the guitar but I have to be honest with myself, I suck at all musical instruments I have ever tried.

                        What I do to keep my hands from being idle is wood working. I incorporate it into everything I do, from plumbing to knife collecting, most of my furniture was made by me.

                        Last weekend I was bored so I ran hot, cold and soft water lines to my garage. Ya, I'm cool like that.

                          I built a table lamp out of a trumpet...does that count for anything? The first plunger from the mouthiece is a pushbutton on-off switch. Nothing was permanently altered. You could strip all the lamp parts off of it and re-install the inside parts and play it. Its a yamaha
