We live in southwest Oregon. I taught in various venues for about thirty years; will be 72, or 18 (take your pick) on Feb. 29, 2020. My dearly loved husband is an astrophysicist whose research continues... Five children, eleven (last count) grandchildren, five goats, a small blind mini horse and another mini gelding, two dogs, a bunch of chickens, two llamas....we grow much of our own food and I love gardening. I still do some free lance editing of science material currently homeschool three children of friends. Its a good balance -- lots of outdoor physical work and then the mental work with my husband and the teaching and such. I really enjoy the short puzzles here during breaks in my day. Rarely have the time or desire (or eyesight any more!) to do more than about 150 pieces, but love many of the photographs folk post.
I joined Jigidi on 23 February 2015 and was last seen on 25 October 2020. I've solved 9371 puzzles (4.5 daily) and put together 927457 pieces (447.7 daily)
