Me, I never seem to have an issue with boredom. I could go down to train station, bus station, or airport and people watch for hours without being bored. I imagine people's backgrounds, careers, likes, etc just watching or listening to their conversations. Some of the conversations are great, especially in airport lounges, because people say things they never should in public. I understand you are homebound but you can still play the same game. Just get online and figure out background, careers, likes, etc for people you see online.

I've not had a chance to be bored in a while. Let's see, playing on the computer, reading, watching a little tv, talking on the phone, playing with the animals....

Only time it seems I get bored is when its been raining for weeks on end. But even then it does not happen often.I usually work about 60 to 70 hours a week so just watching some movies or messing around the house keeps me happy.Now when the sun is out working out in the yard doing chores or going crabbing and fishing in the bay is fun.

Well, the lovely Mrs. Jones (Vita) seems to ALWAYS come up with projects to keep me out of the boredom line, and out of the bars. She just decided that she wants to raise a few (only 5 or 6) chickens, so I've got to build a chicken coop. This is not going to be an ordinary chicken cook,,,,this is going to be a Chicken Taj Mahal. (The latest plan I've got is named "Hennebunkport"). I've got plans, and getting a material list together, etc., etc. It's got to match the rest of the buildings on our property,,,(can't look like a chicken coop you know.) For what I'll have in this chicken coop, I could buy the entire neighborhood eggs for years! Oh well,,,,it's this kind of project that keeps me busy.

I have to admit, I'm rarely, if ever, bored.
