    Reel Lady Dreams DO come true!

    I apologize if this is a repeat of a previous thread :)
    I really am just curious as to what everyone does for a living here on OGF? What are some of your other hobbies/interests? (not fishing or hunting related)
    I'll start by sharing my story....
    Reel Man (Rob) and I own a Woodworking/Solid Surface Machine Repair/Maintenance Company. We have 5 children (1 girl, 4 boys) ages 14-19. :eek:
    Some things that I really enjoy are...Scrabble, Crossword Puzzles, Ping Pong, Darts, My computer, music, dancing, drawing, animals, and darn it.. I just have to say it... FISHING! :D I know, I know, I just broke my own rule.. BUT to describe me and my passions without including fishing... well now, that would be just plain wrong!...lol
    I look forward to everyones responses...and NEW MEMBERS... Don't be shy! Please.. introduce yourself! No better time than now... so come on...start typing :)

    I work for Ford Motor Co. in Brookpark. Cleveland Engine Plant 1, Duratec RFF Assembly. We build the engines for the new 500 and Freestyle as well as the Montego and some other upcoming models as well. I'm 31 years old, (or as my wife says, I recently turned 10 for the third time!) My wife Daniell and I live in Elyria, with 3 boys ages 10 to 4 and another youngin' due in September.

    I don't like to fish but am rather fond of catching!!! :p I enjoy motorsports of all kinds and can be found from time to time sitting in a chair with a blank look on my face doing nothing! (Wait, that's my catching thing again! :rolleyes: ) Looking for a new home by the end of the year as we are outgrowing our current residence. Now, I hope that's enough because I'm gonna find some ice today!!

  3. I'm retired so I fish. do some work around the house, fish somemore, do some work in the yard, fish somemore, fool around with my patio pond and then fish, do a little hunting, fish somemore, Do some fly tying then go fishing, get plenty of rest so I can withstand the rigors of fishing. Guess that covers it.
    Oh! Did I mention that I take some time to maintain my boat so I can Fish.
    :rolleyes: :D :D :)
     
  4. How about as little as possible? :D

  10. IT Development Professional. Years ago they called us computer programmers. Nowadays we spend all of our time in meetings so I guess they had to change the name.

    I'm an avid league & tournament bowler. My book average last year was 209. This year it's in the high 190's due to a chronic back problem that I'm receiving treatment for.

    I love snow skiing and all racquet sports. Especially tennis.

    Happily married for the past 14 yrs. I have one son from a previous marriage and he's an engineering student at Ohio State Univ.

    Married for 3.5 years, no kids, 2 dogs (beagle mix and a lab mix), and live in Firestone Park in Akron.

    My hoobies include (why do I feel like a Playboy Playmate? :confused: ) sports of all types (especially Steelers and Penn State football), working around the house (the whole spectrum from picking out color patterns to destruction of a garage), tasting the finer alcoholic beverages of the world while paying cards, darts, or pool, trivia guru (Jeopardy, NTN, Trivial Pursuit, it doesn't matter), and, ahhhhhhhhh, oh yeah, FISHING :D !

    As far as what I do, I prefer not to say. I am a Super Hero by day, and just me at night. And I'll leave it at that. ;)
