We all have things that we are interested in as I have noticed by the thousands of post I have read over the years. I am interested in the diversity of interest or hobbies that you have. I will list mine.
I want to say that this is my 10,000 post and I wanted it to appeal to many of you. I obviously have an appreciation of this forum as I have devoted several years to it. It has been very entertaining to me and has allowed me to meet many of you over the years. At this time, it is at the top of my interest. I will list them as they appeal to me.
Thanks Roadfood for all you have given me.
2: Clean cars. I cannot stand a dirty car. I never take my car out dirty.
3: Racing, as a owner of NHRA and a Nascar fan
4: Landscaping my property
5: Traveling. My work and interest has allowed me to travel extensively to all 50 states, all of Canada, All of Central America, All of Europe and most of South America.
6: Neatness: I am obsessive compulsive about total cleanliness and neatness
7: Birdwatching. I have 750 birds on my list which have been accumulated due to my travels. Great hobby as you can do it every day of your life.
8: Food: I do not eat a lot but I certainly enjoy unique food which I have discovered on this site due to the influence of Roadfood posters and members. They have allowed me to discover places that I would never have found.
9: Friends. The folks that I have met due to this forum has been wonderful. I cannot list them all but certainly the Mayor, Poverty Pete, Bushie, Traveling Man, Buffet Buster, Lleechef, Iwannago and many others have enriched my life.
10: Life. I have learned to appreciate it much more since I lost my wife a year ago.
Again, My thanks to Roadfood for all it has given me.
Sincerely and respectfully,
Paul E. Smith
