I am the son of an ABC (now the USBC) triple Hall of Fame bowler. I quit bowling when I was 19 at the urging of my dad (he was afraid I would have trouble with my wife-to-be as serious as bowling was to me). 25 years later I started again. After a year I had a massive stroke. The stroke ended my guitar playing days that I enjoyed beyond words that took the place of competitive bowling. i returned to bowling about 9 months after the stroke with a 279/724 night bowling with my good friend Lou, also a Hall of Famer. Now, I bowl with an ex-tour professional Joe Nuzzo, the best amateur bowler in the country (maybe the world), Adam Barta, and 2 more Hall of Famers, Danny Guerrieri, and Rich Skelton. Last year we nearly set a national team record, falling only some 70 pins short. I could have someone post a picture if anyone wants to see what real bowling looks like.

I do still try to write lyrics and play some but my days of intense blues guitar are finished, thanks to the congenital arterial defect that caused the massive stroke.

About a week ago I jotted down some lyrics about a drag car in a blues/rockabilly style for some humorous fun with Adam and Pete Barta, whom I bowl with on Wednesday evenings. This past Wednesday evening I just missed shooting 300 my first game (thanks to a couple of ten pins), while Adam rolled 300, and then I should have shot 276 the second game but a couple of 10 pins foiled my game, while Adam shot another 300 (his 179th), and then I just fell short again with 279. We set the league high team set and game that night.

I like my hobbies to be far removed from my job skills.

Older chainsaw rebuilding and using. Great enjoyment finding them, solving the problems with them and setting them up to cut wood and supply people that can't afford or get their winter wood in any longer.

As a teenager I used to build plastic car models in the winter when it was too cold to work in the garage (Vermont) then work on my '40 Buick in the summer. I found that the change from fine motor skill work in the winter to course motor skill work and vice versa was interesting.

These days an an older person, I still like cars and have two. My primary hobby interest includes things made of metal or wood and involve mechanics. I fly planes (PA-32) spend a lot of time following my daughters volleyball sports team, nurture a good marriage that I'd like to keep, and relaxing with manual labor around the yard.

My first interest is owning and driving Model A's and T's, number 2 is owning and operating steam tractors, and number 3 is "G" scale model railroad. Got lots of other hobbies but these are the main ones.

Besides being a Model A and T collector, I have several other classic cars. I also have been collecting vintage wrist and pocket watches for over 40 years as well as general antiques and collectibles. I also have a room in my house that I call my toy museum, where there are probably 1000 or more model cars and trucks in various scales, as well as a hord of car parts that I thought I really needed to buy at the time I did. some of which are also on display. I must have been reincarnated from an earlier time, to be so in love with old things.

Boy do we have a wealth of talent on this forum!

I enjoy computers, computer graphics, digital photography, and videography. I am fairly competent in Photoshop, Final Cut Pro, and Lightwave.

When I was younger I was very much into model making especial of WWII armor. These skills translated very well when I needed to draw plans and reconstruct the crumbling body of my 1928 original steel skinned Huckster.

I also enjoy woodworking. Now that I move my roadster out of my woodshop, I can get back to doing some. Here are a few pieces I've done:
