Non-golf activities for snowed-in golfers

In the olden days, settlers in blizzard-prone parts of the country spent the winter doing things like making candles and splitting cedar logs into shingles. My golf buddies and I -- on days when we can't figure out how to play somewhere, somehow -- find similar ways to stay busy. Hacker (real name) referees high-school wrestling matches. Tim D. repairs his equipment -- for example, by sewing up rips in his golf bag:

I recently used my favorite photo-project website, Mixbook.com, to create a photo album of my personal golf memories from last year:

And I created a long-term supply of my favorite golf-appropriate nutritional supplement, using a kit my wife gave me:

The kit contained everything I needed:

The only thing not included was a nice big pork belly, which my wife also gave me:

The instructions were easy to follow:

And now I have enough to last at least a couple of weeks.
