    We often say not nice things about our DH's and though I am also guilty of this I wouldn't trade him for anything here on earth. Here are some pictures of his hobby. He is a bowyer and has just started learning flint napping.

    Feel free to add pictures of your DH's hobbies.

    My hubby had rather fish than eat when he is hungry. He just came back in from this mornings trip on the water.Loves to fish for stripers with top water plugs. Luckily we live on a lake.

    Don't really have pictures of him in action but he plays tennis, darts, poker and golf.

    He is wonderful and I would not trade him for anything. Well, maybe a long arm but what can I say. ;)

    Found one of him serving

    Had to look up the definition of bowyer. I'm impressed.
    My DH does stained glass and other things with his hands.

    I can't call it a hobby, but hubby enjoys helping his parents farm. He took this week off his regular job to spray beans and combine wheat.

    I agree we often complain about our DH's. But in some weird way, it's how DH and I show affection for each other. He is a complete sports nut, as a spectator. I grew up with my dad and brother being into baseball and football big time, and basketball and hockey for the big games. But my DH brings sports to the next level. In addition to the main 4 sports, he follows golf, soccer, tennis, cycling, track & field, horse racing, the Olympics and the list goes on and on, and on. He works so hard during the week, I'm glad to see him just sit around on the couch for a while on the weekend. I did, however, put my foot down about professional boxing when I'm around. It's too barbaric for my taste. I agree with you, Mary. I wouldn't trade him for anything on earth.

    My DH hobby is watching TV......he will watch anything (almost) BUT sporting events. As my mama would say "at least I know where he is"!:):):) This is the norm around here for the last 46 years:)
