Born and raised in a very small town in Iowa, I've lived the past 40 years in the NYC metro area. I live with 3 dogs and 6 cats, which makes a very active household. Everyone is a rescue, including a German Shepherd Dog mix (Kelly), a special needs Lhasa Apso (Hoover), and a cranky, but devoted, chihuahua (Champ). The cats are Dirty Harry, Llewellyn, Beckett, Mr. Red, Hampton, MamaKitty. Of course Cranky Champ the Chihuahua rules the house.
I joined Jigidi on 19 March 2013 and was last seen on 30 August 2015. I've solved 783 puzzles (0.9 daily) and put together 178977 pieces (200.3 daily)
