I love working on jigsaw puzzles.

I also do crossword puzzles too.

I read books and newspapers.

I enjoy exercising the “little gray cells” as Agatha Christie’s famous fictional detective Hercule Poirot was so fond of saying.

I have a family member with advanced Alzheimers. She belts out the answers to Wheel of Fortune and spoils the show for the rest of us.

My grandmother was a jigsaw addict. This was in the 1950’s. She had thousands of them, all neatly stacked in an unused bedroom. She could do one in no time at all.

I could use some help here, though. There was a specific brand of jigsaw that she insisted on having. She would not buy any other brand, period. No real reason for trying to remember the brand, just a bit of persona trivia for the family.

She was also a daytime soap opera addict and had every issue of TV Guide ever published.

A relative of mine was forced as a child to do jigsaw puzzles upside down in order to build brain power. It worked.

I love putting jigsaw puzzles together! Last night I finished my latest and it only took me four months-—which seems pretty good since the box said “2 to 4 years”.
