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.

Fights Bathtub Ring- Do People Ask to Be Taken Away By It? They Still Sell This Stuff

Wondering what year they packaged in this wrapper? Maybe an updated version is available in the grocery store, I will check. You can buy it online. It was heralded as a stress reliever and solution to a woman feeling overwhelmed by her life. “Calgon, take me away!”Calgon Water Softener

Our custodian, Dan,  found a case of this product and not sure what year the packaging is from.  I meant to look and see if it had a zip code on it as I used to find items in the art room pre 1964 without a zip code.  They still sell this stuff when I went to look it up in a search. I guess I am out of touch.

At first I thought this was just for the washing machine but it says “bathtub ring’ .

Here is one vintage commercial touting a similar product that is sure to offend someone with the retro thinking.

Not sure if anyone is still trying to get taken away with Calgon bath but here is one old TV commercial. There is another that is totally non PC that may come to your min and is on YouTube but I won’t link it.
