Nice thread! I've been enjoying reading people's posts. This is a diverse group.

For most of her life she studied hard though she did enjoy music. The past 10+ years has focused on medicine and she's finally reaching a point where she can remember what it's like to not work 30hr shifts and 70-80hr weeks and perhaps rediscover fun and relaxation. Now that we're getting ready to have our second kid it is for both of us to have things in our lives that aren't either work or taking care of children.

She enjoys knitting and sewing. When a knitting shop at the hospital I worked at in Michigan closed down I bought her a bunch of stuff and she's been enjoying that. Got her a sewing machine for her birthday last year, and she's enjoyed working on a bunch of projects. Now she is buying a nice camera for Christmas and is going to take a photography class. This will be great since the places I love to fish are beautiful places to take pictures.

I have been trying to introduce her to fly fishing, but she feels bad for the fish. I made her a rod for her birthday this year, complete with her college colors and she loved it. Said, "well I guess I'll have to learn!" I know she'll likely not be as into it as I am but I look forward to introducing her to something I really enjoy.

Marty has been doing it now for several years. She's also been active in an organization called "Quilts for Kids"; which supplies bright, happy-colored quilts for children with cancer and rare diseases.

And, she's also my regular fly fishing partner. Here on the Salmon River in Pulaski, NY looking for a steelhead or two.......

Very nice thread. Sally puts up with a lot from me as far as my fishing. But she is an outdoor lady and hikes or snowshoes at last once a week. We have a routine when camped at our favorite fishing spots. We go hiking together in the morning and then I go hit the evening hatch. She joins me when she feels like it, but usually she is gathering rocks for her collection, or bird watching, or animal watching.

I'm fortunate in that my wife loves camping, hiking, fishing, just being outdoors. She's also big into travel. Unfortunately, life (work) has gotten in the way for the past few years, but we're working on changing that.
My wife has really been on me about going on one of my AK wilderness trips. I told her I'd give her a discount if she does the cooking and dishes. Didn't go over very well.
My oldest son's hobby is roping in rodeos. He has several horses. One of the horses has lost a step or two, so my son retired him -- and give him to my wife. I finally get the car paid off, only to replace it with a monthly stable fee.
I told my wife I should get the equivalent dollars' worth of guiding fishing each month as the cost of the stables. Once again, didn't go over very well.

Fortunately for her (and me) she runs a lot. She's easing into 1/2 marathons and will be running 5 or 6 next year. I'll be sure to take the fly rod along since we typically like to stay for a day or two before and after and I'm hoping (urging her) to run in some states with and near fishable water...

Here she is after her first 1/2 marathon.
