Jigsaw puzzles

puzzle piecesJigsaw Puzzles.

Here, where I live, there is a jigsaw puzzle being worked on every day. As soon as one is finished, they start another one. Occasionally I join them for an hour or so, but not that often. I am their official photographer and we have a record of every puzzle they have done!Image 

My blogging effort has been at a stand still, mainly because I didn’t have photos to include in whatever I thought I could write about.

Yesterday I had my camera with me to photograph the last puzzle that they had finished. They had already started the next one… fifteen hundred pieces… of fish! Heh, why not take pictures of the beginning of a new effort? So that’s what I did!

There are two or three people that work on the puzzles every day.  A few come and join them once in a while.(Like me) They are fun to work on, and very relaxing… and addictive!


We had pizza for supper tonight, and it brought back some memories.

We really didn’t know very much about pizza. That was some new-fangled thing. So was lasagna.

My husband’s uncle Jack used to come and visit now and again. This night he was going to take us out for dinner…for pizza. We had never tasted pizza before, so we were looking forward to something new.

They brought the menu and Uncle Jack said to order anything we wanted. So… we each ordered a pizza! I told you, we had never had it before. Can you imagine how much we had to take home!!!
