    I got asked about what I do with plywood, so I thought I'd share what I did with my spare time last year: Designed (see http://i948.photobucket.com/albums/a...ads23Mar12.jpg ) and built this small car-topable rowing dory. Sundew has carried me on fun days of trout fishing, nature photography and picnics with my beloved; not bad exercise either. What's your hobby?

    Nice work!

    I like a bit of paddling myself.

    I make a game out of staying sane... it keeps me busy.

    Oh well. No rowing boats for me. The only 'hobby' I can claim is knitting rugs to give away for charity. (Our current charity is the District Nursing Service - we found out that the nurses were buying rugs, along with other stuff, for their patients out of their own wages.) But there's one parcelled up in the back of a cupboard that I can't bring myself to give away. I made it into a rainbow, a glaringly bright rainbow, and I just don't want to give it up for the time being.

    One day I'll fetch it out and take a piccie. Then I might feel up to handing it over to have its edging done and warm some poor soul in their last few months.
