August 3, 2003 - Sunday
I dabble in a lot of different things. A jack
of all trades, master of none. My interests are eclectic, which leads to
hobby overload with out enough hours in the day to accomplish all my time
passing entertainment chores. Things like having a job, paying bills and
doing the laundry really interfere with my preferred pass times.
Iím currently exploring amateur radio (HAM)
and Iíve been fooling around with erecting an antenna and studying for the
technicianís license. I suspect that HAM radio is a hobby that's on the
decline but what the heck, I'm a late bloomer. With that activity
monopolizing my time, my other interests are taking a back seat. Those other
things being, gardening, website management, motorcycle riding, music,
computer upgrades, exploring Zen Buddhism, journal writing, Town Hall
newsletter management, hiking, photography Ö. In a few weeks Catherine and I
will be backpacking up Bubbís Creek in Sequoia and I really should be
preparing for that but I just canít seem to break away from the other stuff.
Whatís a vacation without waiting till the last minute to stress over
Anyhow, if anyone would like to join two
elderly over weight backpackers and hike up a mountain pass in Sequoia, drop
me a line. Iíll send you the detailed instructions. For an idea of what it
will be like, see my description of last yearís hike
And now I must move on to that pile of
bills waiting to be paid.
