    What else do you do for fun? Pics of the toys you have

    all of them1.jpg

    Here is a picture of our toys. You can see my husband's freestyle ski on the front of the trailer with the two sit down skis behind it. The little bike is my baby. Small enough I can move it around easy but fast enough to beat most anyone!

    I love to ride in our National Forest on the bikes then head out to the river with the skis! FUN times for sure!

    When I'm not busy with my "day job" or TFP, I spend time on my YouTube channel doing cover tunes. These are my current tools:

    Wow! Nice! I have three PRS guitars: Santana, Custom wide/thin 36, and a McCarty model. Signed by Paul Reef Smith and my neighbor, Derek St Holmes (lead singer w/Ted Nugent). I've got a serious case of guitar envy!

    My toys consist of a couple of guitars, Ferraris (Testarossa & 360 Modena and sailboat). Of course, family always trumps toys!

    Thanks for sharing.

    I feel a bromance coming on, Kim.

    I visited Bill Marriott at his home here a few times and he said he didn't "own" any of the many, many Ferraris and historic cars in his three garages. He said he was merely a "caretaker" of the cars for future generations, which is EXACTLY how I feel. Lots of hard work and I always treated myself to a toy as compensation.

    You only get one life. Live it to the max.

    Thanks Kim. I'm a great player in my own mind. Still young at heart. 360 Modena, while I don't know Derek personally, I have seen him with Ted on more than one occasion - most recently about a year ago here in Texas. They still got it. Nice to see him working with Brad Whitford was well - two incredible artists who probable never get enough credit. As for your "toys", I'm speechless as well. Very nice.

    Tex - get a bad URL trying to access your YouTube post.

    Derek stopped by one day and wanted to see my guitars, so he came into my man cave, restrung all three, signed them and then started playing Stranglehold for me (blew me away, sitting on my couch in a private concert) Derek is super nice and very talented. Splits his time between here and Memphis. Also plays in Paul Reed Smiths band when not touring with Ted Nugent.

    My supplies have been packed away for about 10yrs, but I'm getting them out, organizing them and setting up my art room.
    I was an art major in HS. I had planned to pursue a degree in fine arts but life happened. I plan to resume my hobby soon.
    Some of these are unfinished.

    Oils, graphite, and colored pencil. [IMG][/IMG]

    Thank you, that's incredibly kind of you to say.

    I was actually thinking about selling my supplies so I could pay for the pretties on my pool, but I don't think I can bring myself to do it- even if they haven't been used for years.

    Modena and Tex, I had started taking guitar lessons as a young teen. Didn't get far as my dad passed away shortly after I started. I've done a bit of singing in weddings and church solos, Christmas services, etc and still yearn to play the guitar. I have a huge appreciation for those who play. Maybe before I turn 60 in 10 yrs I can pick it up again.

    Kim and Modena, my hubby would be drooling over your beautiful vroom-vrooms!!

    nini, I will have to drive to your house to help you get those supplies back out! Someone with the talent you have should not have it put up and not used!

    My "kids" laugh at me all of the time over my drawings. I tell them at least I tried!

    That's awesome. Here's my link again just in case: https://www.youtube.com/user/papafoxden. I got to meet Ted 3 times in person and have also seen him perform 3 times so far. Always great shows. Of course anyone who has followed Ted knows Derek's voice is just as much a part of that group as Ted's guitar licks. Even Derek's handiwork is prevalent throughout. Nice you get to sit and chat with him. I look forward to the next time he passes through the San Antonio area.

    The woodsy painting is in oils, not finished and about 11"x8". It's been so long since I did it that I forget what else I was going to add....it was some detail on the path, I believe.

    NO supercross here--------woods ONLY! Enduros and hare scrambles as well am MANY miles of just plain trail riding!

    Funny story---------My first love on the bike is just amble along and see the woods. I was taking a break because I knew the trail and wanted to mess with the guys so I popped out to the road and went up to where I knew they would be coming along shortly. I wanted to be waiting on them like I had beat them so...........(yeah I am bad like that!). Well as I am sitting there in the middle of the woods up runs a small dog! He was SO happy to see me he was about to wag himself inside out! He had on a collar with tags BUT we do not carry phones AND I had to get him out somehow. I waited for the guys to catch up so I could tell them I was heading back to the trucks.

    I loosened my flak jacket and stuffed the dog inside it! His little head and front paws were sticking out with his back paws riding on the seat in my lap! I thought the guys were going to bust a gut laughing at us but hey I had to get him out somehow! He seemed to have fun.

    Once I got to the trucks I called the number on the tag. His "parents" had taken him for a walk in the woods the day before and he took off after a deer! They were still out looking for him when I called! They had only gone home for a couple of hours during the night before going back out to find him. I had to show them how he could ride a motorcycle!
