Peace and quiet at home. Not dealing with traffic.
There are numerous things that bring me joy, but I have to agree, happy kids top the list.

Catching bass over 10 lbs, pleasing the wife and daughters, performing good to excellent woodworking.
Outdoors in general… A crisp cool morning or a gentle breeze one afternoon. I enjoy sitting out on the swing under the tree and the tone of the wind chimes. Wading a secluded creek for some smallies, photography, and always my kids having a good time.
LOTS Of "Stuff".

Fishing, But with a "Friend" along for the FUN! Especially Children who have never been Fishing before. ONE Fish …. They're HOOKED!

Not necessarily in this order but … Largemouth Bass, Pike, & Muskie.

Photography as you can see below. Children, People, & Nature.

Classic Car Restoration. A Good Friend has a shop that specializes in doing that. I work for FREE when I go there …LOL..

(Next Post) We did my 1979 Corvette there. Complete "Body Off" Restoration back to Original. With the exception of the Engine/Motor. It's now a 350 Modified Chev that just "Gets Up & GOES!!".

Knowing my children are doing better than I did.
Coconut cream pie. Grand kids. Snorkeling in the Caribbean. Amanda Clark getting her Revenge. German Chocolate Cake. Lots of things.
MY 1979 Corvette Body Off Restoration. 1.5 Years Approx. To Complete. Most of it at My Friends Shop.

One Big Problem was getting all of the Correct Parts. I live in Canada and 90% of the New Parts had to come from the USA. 40% to 50% of the time they were the Wrong Parts. Try Again & Again.

KACHING! KACHING! $$$$$$'s Galore!

Sliding that 350 Chev in there was the Crowning Glory. We had the "Standard" 350 Re-Built at a Motor Shop that Specializes in "Stepping Things Up A Little". As in 500+ HP!

Anyway. It's DONE Now and I OWN IT!! ...LOL..

I'd do it again in a Heartbeat!

The JOY of Doing it and the Joy of now Driving It …..... Beats a Root Canal any day of the week!! ;-}

Widdle, you can choose not to open posts in the off topic forums. (smiles)

Nice Vette Rick. I used to have a 69.

Did you bother to READ the Title? "Outside of your passion for woodworking, what brings you joy?"

This is also "Coffee Lounge Forum" as Cricket has pointed out. It's there for NON Woodworking Topics.

ALL of the other Posts here have nothing to do with "Woodworking" either.

1525 Days and you still haven't figured it out?

Questioning the meaning of life and coming up with a meaningful answer that can not be refuted.
