Very Funny Topic Frank! Just had to laugh. I'm sure one of those that have had hobbies that have cost a fortune. Spent a tiny one on a salt water reef setup once, sucked money like you wouldn't believe lol. Don't like to think about it, and the same came be said with photography gear over the yrs. And here I am complaining about the cost of fix and developers LOL Oh well, what can I say, I'm an extravagant splurging at times, but otherwise a cheap at heart lol
Now, let's not add my woodworking equipment and tool shop setup costs, computers that were 'really' not needed over the yrs, as well as the workshops and travel vacations. Whew...that was scary!
