We have a small farm, the wife (retired from a "real" job) is the farmer. I'm the builder, fixer, mechanic, painter, etc, besides having a full time job in the city.
My hobby, time permitting, is the study of military history. Especially WWII. I read every evening, and will have 3 or 4 books going at the same time. Right now they are the memoirs of a Russian on the Eastern Front, a US Marine in the Pacfic Islands, a soldier with the 5th Infantry Division (the best dadburn outfit the Army has ever had:mrgreen:) fighting thru France, and a study of the Pacific campaign in the Mariana Islands.
I also belong to a half dozen history forums.
Of course, it goes without saying that as a certified gun nut I have coupled my "collecting" with the history bug.
I mean, why have an AR when the same money can get you a US Rifle, Cal 30, 1903A3, made in 1943?;-)
