    My husband is driving me nuts!! He needs a hobby! Any suggestions?? Needs to be cheap and will entertain him for more than 1 week. Have already done- R/C airplane and helicopter(too expensive), WWII military memorobilia (expensive), Jewelry making (VERY expensive). No "collecting things" even if they are cheap because I aleady have a house full of "crap" he started as "collections" but then he "crapped out on doing". No cars either (expensive and takes up too much space and it smells bad AND we have a 1973 ford f250 with $3000 of new parts in the garage waiting for it to "warm up outside". We also have parts, but no car for, 1970 Mach1, ford Probe, several other trucks, 4 seta of tires for several other trucks. You get the point. Neither one of us like sports.
    HELP!!!![​IMG]

    He's a bricklayers so nothing outside. After being outside all day, I don't blame him.

    THANKS!

    Ironic, I can't find time for a hobby.
    I am NEVER not busy!!

    Quote:How bout RC boats. Less likely to crash & after the initial cost not much other than gas & batteries. Mine is 3 1/2 feet long & cruises at 40 mph. I go much slower when the chickens are on board of course. They like to waterski tho.
