Little white ball, a stick, a pasture and a sunny day is the only way to go.

I like bike riding when the weather is nice. Really give you a workout.  Never had the time or money or patience to chase a ball hither and yon.  Maybe someday I'll give it a try.  Do you ever lose the ball in the snow or do you use black balls?

Fred, I have a golf ball you can't lose.  If I hit it in the water it floats, if I hit it in the woods it has a radio beacon so I can find it, if I hit it in snow it has a little flag that pops up.  You can never lose it.  Wish I knew where to buy some more because I found it LOL.

Yours was probably developed for NASA for the moon project.  Where did you find it?  On EBAY?

I'm going to say shooting, but first let me clarify my response. I am a professional photographer and I photograph on a daily basis, so in my field we refer to photographing as shooting. Hence my answer to question is Shooting. I know, its probably not what the writer had in mind when he asked the question, but am I to read peoples minds now.....lol    I just shoot......ask questions later...too funny,..... I said that, seems to apply dont you think?

I like to spend time shooting targets, and trap while also teaching fellow wheelchiar users and members of the Paralyzed Veterans of America the fun they can have safely shooting pistols and rifles. I like doing this as part of my community outreach, and assisting other vets into getting back outdoors. So that they can feel part of the community again.
I also like to build military models and donate them to various organizations.

Hi William, Rich Hansell calling. I also collect coins. I do not have as many half dollars as you. I have the Walking Liberty, Ben Franklin & JFK sets. Do you have the first half dollar commemorative issued by the USA? It was for Columbus's 400th discovery of America. They are still available. Check the ads in Coin World. Do you collect the Commemorative's? Most of them have very low mintage. I'm mostly into US Proof /mint sets. I have all from 1955 to present. See you at the reunion. Scouts Out!

Hey Fred,
How about adding auto racing. I was involved with it before going to Nam and had a car waiting for me to jump in upon my return from Nam. Dirt track racing that is. You might know my hometown boy. That would be Jeff Gordon. I was involved with dirt track racing for over 25 years. As with everything else the expense escalated.
