My DIL Erika sent me these photos of granddaughter Maura’s sidewalk chalk artwork in their driveway .

I forgot to ask how long it took to create.

Playing UNO Together 200 Miles Apart

All you need is an UNO deck apiece.

And you FaceTime, making sure your discard pile can be seen.

It took a few reminders for me from Laura as to whose turn it was, especially when we reversed.

Here’s Lauras selfie from their end in Ohio.

 

Jigsaw Puzzle Season

Jigsaw puzzles anyone? Yes or no?

if yes, what’s your method? Borders first? Similar colors? Solitary or communal effort?

Preferred number of pieces? Subject?

Anyone do a puzzle without looking at or knowing what the picture is?

In the mid 70’s I had a circular puzzle of a pizza with toppings.   I glued it together and tacked it on the kitchen door when we lived in Ft. Knox Kentucky.  Wish I had a photo of my colorful interior decoration in government quarters.
I’ve had a couple of puzzles made from my photographs and given them as gifts.

Relaxing activity? Stress reliever? Here’s the HIstory if you’re interested.

But here are my father Roy and his siblings and parents.  To see and older photo of the family you can click this blog post Heritage
