The forum is entertainment and recreation, so I figured I'd give an update on a couple of diversions I allow myself time for when I'm not working, reading, or worshipping. The past few years have been extraordinarily busy for me, but I manage to scrounge around 5-10 hours per week for those things we call recreation. There is fishing in a homemade boat: And around a year and a half ago I ordered a bunch of 4130 chrome moly tubing, some of which came bent. And welded thngs. Late last month I wheeled out a fuselage from my shop: Now I'm working on ribs.... I was thinking about numbering my days and it is important to me to keep a balance. Over the past year I have around 250 hours on the plane project and 130 hours spent fishing. My work hours are much higher, but I've learned to keep them moderated. Then there are about 700+ hours in reading Scripture and Christian works (that's really not much, less than 2 hours per day). The recreation and Scripture time is often spent with my wife, and we seem to derive a lot of pleasure from all of that. So this is all a simple reflection of how blessed I am at being allowed to live a remarkably full and busy life, yet a simple life. Of course, I'm very slack at social media and keeping up with the latest political and social trends, but that's what the PuritanBoard is for!
