What's Your Hobby?

I have often wondered what people get out of their hobbies. Take fishing for example, all that time sat waiting for a fish to bite, or not to bite, or take my daughter's hobby of cross-stitching, all those hours spent with a needle and thread. A less common hobby is the static engine, the owners of these engines like to display them at car shows or other events like the one at Ingrow Station on Sunday. The owner will generally start the machine up in the morning and then sit behind it all day, reading a book, drinking tea, or just staring into space.

  1. Indeed and there is usually at least a couple of other guys just standing looking at the engines. Still I sometimes spend ages staring at a seemingly empty bush waiting for a rare bird to pop out. Each to their own!
