    Gonna combine two posts here.
    I'm gonna be a Gran Dad for the second time!
    My first grandson (from my oldest son) is hitting 20 years old & now my 2nd is due this February.
    My youngest son is 40, he & his wife have been together since high school!
    Never thought they would have children, so it's a big surprise.

    2nd part of the post is: Wondering what other folks do when not riding or working?
    I've always spent a lot of time out doors & have always been interested in how things were done "back then".
    Ever since I was a kid I liked making things & using them.
    For awhile in my life I did demonstrations at native Pow Wows & other events teaching about primitive tools.
    Here are some pics: Fish Traps, Fish gigs & spears, pump drill, fish hooks (gorges) & lures, Atlatal's.

    Congratulations, Trout!

    Cool handiwork on those primitive items.

    Congratulations on the second grandchild.
    I keep bees. I've begged space in a couple of friends' orchards, and have hives on top of the WWll air raid shelter in my garden. Having them up there means I can use the garden without them disturbing me, or me them.
    I understand that there were shelters shared between every four houses in my street, though there are only two left now. Very thick brickwork, concrete roof and a narrow door. It wouldn't have withstood a direct hit, but would protect against a bomb dropping nearby. There was an aircraft factory where the Leeds/Bradford Airport is now, and Leeds was quite a target, though not to the same extent as Hull or Sheffield.
    I've widened the door and put a window in to make it more useable as a garden shed.

    Very nice!
    Bee keeping has always interested me probably because I like honey so much.
    Never thought about putting the hives up high, pretty cool.
