I have been retired from the Information Technology field since 2012 after a total of 46 years. I have been doing puzzles since I was 5 or so and really love these online ones much better that the old way that takes up too much space. When not doing puzzles I do carpentry, plumbing and electrical for family and friends, read every day (horror, sci fi, folktales, the American Short Stories series and a variety of other subjects). I am a long time fan of classical, 50s, 60s and 70s and new age music. I finally have a studio and will get back to painting in oils and learning to use acryilics. No vacations since retirement since family and other projects have kept me busy, but I hope starting this summer (2021) I'll be able to explore more of the beautiful Pacific Northwest where I live. Thanks to all of the puzzlers who have put such interesting and beautiful puzzles , and thanks to the Jigidi folks for all their hard work in maintaining this site.
I joined Jigidi on 11 February 2012 and was last seen on 13 September 2020. I've solved 2654 puzzles (0.8 daily) and put together 228398 pieces (72.8 daily)
