Here are all the other skills and hobbies I have acquired and enjoy.
Hobbies and activities I enjoy
These are the freetime skills and hobbies I enjoy the most. There's just not enough free time.
My favorite free time is spent sailing on the open water, cooking for family or large groups, and archery or rifle and pistol shooting. My love for theater and magic can be seen in the other pages. All my free time now is devoted to writing and Bible study. The Summer is the only time I get to enjoy these other activities.
Catamaran sailing and racing has been a passion for over 50 years. I grew up on boats and sailing. I love the open water and the quiet power of the wind.
I developed food service skills from being a line cook at a local Italian Restaurant, helping in the camp dining hall, feeding up to 300 Scouts and Leaders three times a day. Plus I help by cooking and preparing the food at the synagogue on their breakfast and campouts.
I enjoy archery with Compound Bows, Recurve Bows, and Cross bows. Ever since I was a young boy with a target in my yard I have greatly enjoyed archery. I still have my first recurve bow I saved up nickles and dimes for.
I also love to participate in firearm target shooting with pistols or rifles. Shooting sports has always been an enjoyable past time. All is done legally and under very strict controls. I take this hobby very seriously.
I have been camping all my life with the Boy Scouts. I do not do it as much now, but I still enjoy the outdoors. Currently, I lead the Beth Zion Synagogue's annual Sukkoth campout. Only an overnight, but keeps the fire burning.
