I have a few "hats", the latest was a birder that is also a gardener, but before those came along, I have been a cat lover most of my life. Now the most used "hat" is mum of a rambunctious set of whiskers. Before him, three sets of whiskers... I was a secretary for 15 years, then a stay at home mom with a few odd jobs that helped round up my knowledge. I also love to read but lately the brain exercises have become obsessive, with puzzles! And I have met some extraordinary people! There is always work in the garden... but there are also friends to talk to, be updated on nests, or new birds in the garden, making friends smile with pretty puzzles... I cannot stay away from Jigidi! A puzzler said: "to enjoy beauty, dreams and other folks", I could have not said it better.
We live in North Carolina USA... I care and respect all animals, but my passion are cats and birds.
I have two names and it has always been a bit complicated on which to use, by birth or predilection, or according to my "hats"?
QUALITIES: I am self-assured and kind, but do not like my boundaries crossed. I am straightforward and open-minded. I say what I feel and not what I think people wants to hear, honest 100 percent I do not believe in white lies. If someone says something that is not true, I do get upset so first reaction is to clarify... silence is not a good reaction, some might take it wrong. If it is right, no problem admitting!
Kindness, honesty and being humble are a must for being my friend!
I joined in 2014 but only became social in December 2019. It took me 5 years ... I have made good friends but some negative people are bad karma. It aggravates me to have to tell people their behavior is not acceptable... all adults should know that their boundaries end where the other person's boundaries start. Imposing people also aggravate me... sarcasm and deviousness are simply intolerable! Do they think they are wit or clever? I don't like pranks, they are malicious and mostly come from bullies and not from true friends. And there is no place for mocking either.
I READ all my messages and answer any question there is... otherwise my after puzzle NOTE would be my reply! Thank you!!!

P.S. From JIGIDI on COPYRIGHTS:
"It is a really common misconception that just because an image is out there online it's automatically free to use - this is not the case, and this is why we do ask all of our users to obtain permissions to use images they find online.
There are sites that are solely for providing free images, so I suggest searching these out. This way you won't run into issues after you've taken the time to create a puzzle."
P.S. On "FRAMING SIGNATURE": the only reason I add the framing claim to my puzzles is to assume responsibility for altering the photo and I try to do it with the less change possible.
P.S. On ANONYMITY subject Oct 13, 2020:
I am so tired with ANONYMITY!
If JIGIDI is a SAFE place and a place for friends, there is no need to be hiding behind an ALIAS!
Sorry, had to vent!
