Did you know that doing jigsaw puzzles can help prevent Alzhimer’s and other memory loss diseases/conditions? They stimulate both sides of your brain at the same time. They build new pathways throughout your brain.  My mom won’t even let us use the picture on the front.  It turns out that she’s building new pathways in our brians!  Thanks, Mom!

And some of them are incredibly frustrating! Just last night we finished a 1000 piece jigsaw puzzle that took us 4 days to put together. It was of three pheasants, two of them sitting on a piece of broken-down fencing, with lots of snow-covered grass and trees and some lovely pink and purple sky as the background. And the pieces for the fence all looked the same. The tree pieces all looked the same. The sky pieces all looked the same. The snowy-grass pieces all looked the same. The pheasant pieces either looked like each other or like the grass. (darn camouflage!)

I'm Mrs. Kim's daughter, a sophomore in high school right now. I love to read and write. I enjoy working on computers and cars (did you know that an air bubble in your hydraulic brakes can ruin your braking completely? - until a mechanic bleeds it out, anyway). I also love dogs and horses.
