I was just going through some of my scans, and I came across a couple that I had totally forgotten about.
As it turns out, Leonard Nimoy enjoys taking his kids (Adam and Julie) to the beach to play Volleyball. I mean, can this guy get any more "down to earth"? He is my absolute hero - he has worked hard, deserves what he has, and tries to be family-oriented - he tries to follow his dreams and passions without leaving his loved ones behind.
It's small things like this that make us realize that he is not a god - just an ordinary man with great talent, and good fortune.
In the second scan we see Leonard and his first wife Sandi playing a game of skittles at their home. I didn't even know skittles was a game - apparently it's actually a sport! It seems to be (kind of) like bowling. I guess we just don't have it in Canada, or else I am blind.. Just look at the cute miniature version (table skittles) they are playing in the picture! (Thanks, google!)

Sandi looks shocked! It must be his mad skill.
A permitted glimpse into any "idol"s personal life is always amazing, because sometimes as fans we begin to think of them as above us - gods - and we forget that they are human. I mean, Leonard as gone through periods of extreme poverty, divorce, and alcoholism - it is through faith and hard work he has made it to the very top.
