Guitar. Long ago, when the stones were soft, I used to make extra cash playing guitar and singing folk songs for lounge lizards. But, listening to the Gypsy Kings or Los Lobos forces me realize what an amateur I was.

Pool. Also used to play a fairly mean game of pool--nine-ball, straight pool, snooker, etc. Now I'm playing again, and the word is that I'm the "best player in my immediate family."

Movies. This is my life-long passion--flicks, motion pictures, the Big Screen! I'll be watching films as long as my eyes can see and they have popcorn at the theaters. More and more, however, I view old films on the small screen: TCM and AMC are my favorite movie channels.

Fishing. Definitely! There are few things I enjoy more than fishing on a lake or pond and contemplating the meaning of life (even figured it out once, but forgot).

Motorcycles. "If I have to explain it, you wouldn't understand."
