Just wondering what other things people do outside making music and playing arrangers?

Personally i am a huge cycling fan and try to make at least a 2 hour drive several times a week, currently every day because i am preparing to climb some of the famous mountains in the French and Italian Alps this summer.

Its also a necessity for my other hobby, thats cooking (and eating)

So what are your hobbies outside music?

Bachus, well I will jump in , as I have my garage set up with leather work and a laser engraver. I use the laser to cut and engrave the leather from the large hides to make multiple items. A lot faster now than when I used to do them all by hand. Plus I have two industrial sewing machines to do the sewing of some things like back packs and ground sheets etc. but do hand sewing for wallets and knife sheaves.
Also, I do acrylic and ply as well, but I love doing the leather.

That sounds like fun and potentially profitable at the same time.

Proffitable? Maybe.

For people that like to create things with their hands, definately a fun thing..

Fun is always in the doing, and and watching others do also. Like watching real musicians play real keyboards and guitars etc. Usually because the music and the musician draws you into the whole experience.
I also get to have lots of fun playing with the laser and leather, as leather is very tactile; just like playing music with an instrument - it is rewarding on many levels.

Most of my current leisure time is spent sailing my Morgan 33 Out Island sailboat in Chesapeake Bay and along the Atlantic Coast from Maryland to the Dry Tortugas. I also spend a fair amount of working in my gardens. Sometimes, I just sit in a comfortable chair on my deck at home and watch the birds and animals, which is the benefit of building a home on the edge of the forest. We regularly see wild turkey, deer, raccoons, possum, an occasional black bear, and dozens of different bird species on our feeder.

Good topic,

Gary

Music, arrangers, and painting - as in ART ...
We consider our daughter to be the artist in the family - she started doing really nice work at the age of 11 years and now as an adult has been commissioned to do paintings and wall and ceiling murals in peoples and a hospital.
My wife took up painting quite a few years ago and is also very good.
When I retired from the day job, I started taking art lessons with her and found it to be as relaxing and as much of an 'escape' from daily life as music is.
I think I've done some pretty decent work, some of which I have shared below.
Also, while I do not have quite the 'forest' Gary has, I do live in an area where the minimum lot size for a home is 2 acres, so we have a good amount of trees. I have seen up to 28 deer at one time going through my backyard, as well as wild turkeys (not the kind in a bottle wink ) , fox, hawks, but no black bears - yet ... although there have been reports of one wandering around the town next to ours ... Once we even had 16 dairy cows grazing in our backyard, as a result of a hole in the fence of a dairy farm not far from our house ...
