    Have you started any new hobbies due to being on pandemic lockdown? Something that you never thought you would get into doing--?
    For me it is adult paint by numbers...

    If you would have told me that I would take this up before the plague I would have made the big laugh..
    But I find this new (to me) hobby to be very restful--it allows my mind to relax and be still.....
    It's also relatively inexpensive and my only hobby that the wife actually enjoys the results of--???
    So if you have started something new--on lockdown--- that helps you cope and you now enjoy post it up for the rest of us to see---?

    Working out more outside, versus going to a crowded gym.

    Part of the hobby is corrupting others into it! Consider this the great temptation.

    I’ve been very tempted by this as a few guys in the Minnesota rotary owners club are into them. As if I need another money hemorrhaging hobby...

    I have expanded my small engine habits. Anything involving scoping out deals on Craigslist and Facebook marketplace as well as fixing things up, I’m pretty into it. Did a few leaf blowers, weed whips, mowers, snowblowers, etc. My favorite has been getting into antique outboards! I’ve even been able to break even selling them when finished!

    Not really a new hobby, but finally got back to it after a year of not touching a brush. Still a work in progress but it felt good to get rid of the feeling of not being able to do anything.

    As a yacht delivery captain, I’ve made a couple of nautical bracelets. I use a small block as well as a D shackle for more added bling factor. [​IMG]

    Re-acquainting myself with the (shrinking?) world of radio. SW/MW/Airband/FM....also an attempt to distance myself from more & more “technology”. Dare I say I’m becoming my parents and listening, nee...enjoying, talk radio even.
