Was wondering what you all do in your spare time.

May be of help to each other.

Me, shooting, poker, diving (open water that is, before any comments) and flying my model helicopter.

powerkiting, had a go at that a couple of years ago, have never been so battered,bruised and scared in my life and this is coming from someone who used to do HALO parachuting in the army, has been shot twice and worked in war zones.

Monty,

so what is this 'dog showing':rolleyes:

is it like "ere, look at me dog":p

or is it the full, 'groomin, tail spruced up, manicured nails Crufts type dog showing'?

jeez, that must take some dedication:)

I tried dog showing once but the ex wife objected to the pictures being made public!!!

Seriously, tend to just chill and have the occasional drink. Do quite a lot of reading but have just bought a caravan cheap and so spending time getting that up together before I hit the vast expanse of country lanes and cause havoc!!!!:eek:
