A few little things...

The Michigan Murders: The True Stories of the Ypsilanti Ripper's Reign of Terror  
by Edward Keys is my current read.   I was lucky enough to get it on sale for 99 cents.  I don't want a steady diet of true crime books, but I do read a few along.
We had dreary, drizzly day.  Not one bit of sunshine.  And according to the weatherman we won't have any sun for the next few days, plus we will have more snow.  The main roads are now clear, but the side roads still have slick spots.

I record a lot of music shows...one of our favorites is Songs from the Center.  It is only a half hour show, but it will have singer songwrites...most I have not heard of.  Tonight we heard the one below...

On the show it was just Thor Platter and his guitar:  I liked it better but have not found that version.  He wrote this song when he was younger, but he did not say how young he was when he wrote it.

We are watching the first episode of the new season of Victoria....so I best get off here and concentrate!

Forgive me if I have posted this before...I am thinking about making a bunch of these for a sew along I joined.  Funny how I joined it, and thought maybe it would inspire me to get something done but now it is just one more thing to try to do.  But maybe with time I will be more into it.  There is another option that I think I will do...maybe...

We happened to come across a Matchbox 20 concert on TV the other night and I heard this song. It is new to me...but we both really liked it.

A finished puzzle

I finished it at last!  I did better about not devoting every moment to it through the day.  I just would not let myself start that...still,  I spent a lot of hours on it.

That face!  Even though the entire puzzle is very appealing to me because it is sewing related, that face is what forced me to buy the puzzle.  It is a look that could have been taken straight from Bubbie.  There is a certain smugness, while at the same time a contented look.  He is almost always very pleased with life.

And Bubbie definitely likes to be right in the middle of what I am working on, though he did not bother this puzzle--a first in his 11½ years of life.  I have had this puzzle for at least a year, maybe a couple years and have not tried to work it because I did not think it would survive him.

As you can see it has 2000 pieces.  When finished it measured 27½ by 38½ inches.  If you are interesting in seeing the biggest view, Right Click on each photo then click to view in a new tab or new window.  This will give you a slightly bigger view
