Hello. My name is Richard and I live about 25 miles (40km) north of Atlanta, GA, USA.
I am 73, retired, divorced with a wonderful ex-wife, daughter and grand-daughter. ex- military (14 years) U.S.Navy, VietNam Veteran. Stationed in Rota, Spain for 6 of 12 years on active duty (2 years Reserve Duty). While in Spain I learned that the rest of the world did not have my American mentality/philosophy. My love for Spain (language, customs, food and drink - especially Sherry) taught me to open my eyes and see the other the world as it is. I have been lucky (sometimes) to have traveled the world and loved meeting and talking to people from the many different places, to learn about their country and way of life.
I joined jigidi for relaxation and because I have done the old style jigsaw puzzles from a very young age. This year 2021 I started reading the comments (which I never did before) on jigidi's puzzles plus the messengers bios that were most interesting, After making a few comments of my own I found a world of people who like to share conversation which is all I want so...... Thank-you all.
Pictures I post were taken by and have meaning to me, places I've been, things I have done or the fun I have had since entering this digital camera era. The camera is a Pentax Optio W80 waterproof camera that captured the moment in time I wanted. Hopefully you will find them entertaining.
Smiles, cheers and best wishes,
I joined Jigidi on 22 March 2018 and was last seen on 22 September 2021. I've solved 1299 puzzles (1 daily) and put together 98346 pieces (76.8 daily)
