Does any play online jigsaw puzzles? I first found them on yesterdaystractors.com.
Here’s the puzzle for a cool 48 Chevy pickup picture.

Enjoy.

That was cool. I finally figured out how to do it and got it put together in a little under 30 minutes.
I'll have to share it with my daughter who is a puzzle freak. thumbs_up

I too visit YT every day, but don't normally take the time to do the puzzles. They have some pretty cool ones on there.
During the winter months I usually try and get 3 or 4 of the real ones done. Good way to pass the time when things are a little slower.

Every Christmas my wife would buy us real jigsaw. That was what we did over the holiday. I now have 24 completed puzzles hanging on the basement wall.
When my wife died, friends who knew I loved jigsaw puzzles brought me some but they are still unopened. Its not the same any more.

Sedgy, its been some time since the love of your life passed, so I feel comfortable enough to ask you this.
What would SHE say about you giving up the jigsaw puzzles?
My wife and I enjoy working on jigsaw puzzles. I don't think that "enjoy" is the right word. We enjoy the competition of trying to out do one another. She always starts them. I work on them some, but never finish them. I leave that for her. I have to be careful not to get too close to finishing it to avoid being accused of being patronizing.
So now I have to ask myself, "Would I quit doing crossword puzzles if my wife were to pass before I do?"
Probably, because I never start them, and I never finish them, and I would not have her around to gloat over for finding that one piece she had been looking for next to forever.
What would my wife say from the Great Beyond if I gave up jigsaw puzzles in her absence?
She'd say, "Well Stupid, you weren't very good at them anyway, why, you weren't ever able to finish any of them."

Um, Thanks for that! I have forever lost about 2 hours of my time that could have been better utilized on car or house repairs.
