    Flashlights, bass fishing (however, Hurricane Rita and a lack of recent rains has really screwed up my fave spots around here) and online gaming (specifically BHD). I used to be into Spyderco knives big time, but my interest has waned somewhat over time; they are still the only ones I will carry, however. I also enjoy being an officer on my local volunteer FD.

    - Making simple training knives (recently started);

    - Hand-crafting pocket sticks of varying shapes and sizes (since 1997);

    - Acting;

    - Directing;

    - Worrying;

    - Having random bouts of cerebral flatulence, like I'm having right now, that disable me from remembering what all else I like to do in my spare time.
