My dad was a Trash Collector in the Allentown, Pennsylvania area from 1960-1973. This was when trash was separate from garbage (food stuffs, liquids, fats, etc.). I grew up with 'trashed' items as part of my life. When I moved away from home, all my pots and pans, my silverware, most of my dishes, and some of my furniture were from the trash. I still use the pots and pans and a few of the dishes. I only have one small bookcase left of my "trash stash". I never felt that using someone else's trash was degrading to me, it was just a fact of life. I still will pick up things off the curb if I can use it.
I think having a background like that made me able to look at things differently. I can use a piece of a dog leash for a hinge on a pet door. I can use some pieces of broken down fencing to lash new fencing to poles without having to buy new attachments. I have used many storm windows to close in a porch and create a sun room. I can see uses for almost anything.
@edcotton Thank you for these lovely old photo/puzzles. I was absent from Jigidi for awhile, but am back now and am starting on my huge stash of bookmarked puzzles. I am glad I came across this one. It seems you have stopped publishing puzzles. Are you and your family okay? I hope you are weathering this Covid-19 with grace and humor. Thank you again.
