Born in NYC, spent 7 years working overseas with USGovt., now live in Anchorage, AK. Used to be akema, but now am akema2. Love animals, have 2 maine coon cats and 3 mixed breed dogs. I'm retired, 72 yrs old, and a happy person who loves life. I've loved jigsaw puzzles since childhood, collect stamps, do artwork, and am moved profoundly by music. I've enjoyed Jigidi for a while now and decided I should join the fun. It impresses me as a really fun community of online friends. My name is Elinore BTW.
I joined Jigidi on 29 May 2017 and was last seen on 3 September 2018. I've solved 3278 puzzles (7.1 daily) and put together 310705 pieces (672.3 daily)
