"The only difference
between men and boys," they say, "is the price of their toys."
I don't know about you, but I resemble that remark!
My first "adult"
hobby was photography. I learned how to take pictures and develop them
during a college course. I took the course with a borrowed camera and the
school's darkroom equipment, but later, I decided I needed my own stuff.
Now I have several cameras, all kinds of lenses, and two tripods. Until
our last garage sale, I also had a full darkroom set-up. I can't remember

(at least two different sizes), spinning reels, (at least three different
sizes), and now that I live in New Mexico--fly rods and all the accompanying
I guess my real hobby is
collecting stuff for hobbies. It is easy for "stuff" to take
over our lives and deplete our bank account. I think Paul had it right
when he said: "Not that I speak from want; for I have learned to be
content in whatever circumstances I am." Philippians 4:11
