I got hooked on puzzles a few years ago until my wife bought me a 1500 piece puzzle. Its been about 25% completed through the last year of Covid social distancing, and will probably be put in the foot of my casket that way.
I just don’t have a super comfortable spot to do it… ya know? I can do it on the coffee table but I’m either sitting on the floor or awkwardly folding myself in half. I need a poker table or something downstairs where I can do puzzles and things without clogging up my dining room table where I eat my food.
We tried a big puzzle on vacation (1000 pieces?) and got nowhere for an entire week. Then I bought a smaller number of pieces for at home. My husband retired and spent weeks working on it. Now it is framed. I wonder if 300 pieces is ok, or it is still a full time job? I also wonder if the cat is going to walk across the table and make us lose pieces? I found a few around the house with the one my husband did.
Another favorite is Sudoku, but before I can do more from books I’ll need new eyeglasses. I know I can do them online but it’s harder to cheat. You can’t make notes in the margins. Annotation add-ons don’t seem to be an answer.
