Hobby-Webster's Dictionary. Definition: A favorite pursuit or pastime.

You read in the G.E.M. where there was a good Farm Fest Historical Club, or what have you.

As you read through some of the articles; somewhere along the line someone gets the old dollar sign in their eyes.

When people get into this hobby of finding old gas engines to restore and show and to make sure that old engines do not fade away, it should be a pastime, not a business-for pay!!

It makes my days pay everytime some young one, or his dad come up to my show of engines and pumps, and asks: 'Sir what was this engine used for way back when?'
