  1. Thanks Keramikos! And you are totally right...nothing worse than spending time searching pile of loose pieces for ones which are not there at all. :oD
  2. Hey Brunswick, that's what my sister says every time she sees the completed puzzle, that she wants to frame it. I didn't think it was feasible, but now I know I was wrong. Thanks for sharing.
  3. Thanks for the kind words, Mrstyndall.
  4. Brunswick, I saw Steve Miller play this song live in Tucson as he was still working it out, prior to the Fly Like and Eagle album. Was awesome. Cool to see as a 45.
  5. Love this tune...especially in the Blues Brother's movie. Thanks for sharing.
  6. Twixt was one of my favorite games...for some reason, I nearly always won...just came naturally to see multiple plays ahead and was always able to block my opponent while skirting around their 'wall'....
  7. Thanks jscotto! Did exactly what you suggested and indeed, the images are now correctly aligned. Many thanks.
  8. Sorry again..uploaded the images from my computer, in which they all had the correct profile. Took the pictures in 'photo' setting on my iphone. Not sure why my last three postings are all going lan...
  9. Can never have too much peace and love.
  10. Watchsearcher, fhrjr2 and Newfld, thanks for your kind comments. Regarding orientation, I took picture with iphone, but had setting to 'square' rather than 'photo'. I uploaded from my computer, but i...
  11. Sorry, regardless how I rotate these pictures, they always end up in this profile.
  12. Sorry, regardless how I rotate these pictures, they always end up in this profile.
  13. Sounds good (my wife tells me I have too many hot sauces in the fridge, and she's correct, so I know how that goes). Love your other stuff as gives me some ideas of items I'm going to post/...
  14. Hi JScott, My mom is considering liquidating her huge bunnykin's collection. Do you have any interest? I could take a picture of them (they are all on display shelves) for you to see. Not trying to...
  15. Thank you keramikos for the kind feedback, and especially for the links to the Bedford Hours. I enjoyed reviewing that information. Best, Frank
  16. Thanks for the correction, junkbuddy, and I realize Royalcroftbooksfromme1 never said Rockwell....It was my mistake and incorrect identification. Thanks for the insights.
  17. MsCrystalShip, I'll post a picture of a size view of the wooden pieces next puzzle I do, so you can see how thick these are. They feel like you are actually building/assembling something. Tons of fun...
  18. Ms.ChrystalShip, As Roycroftbooksfromme1 noted, indeed a Rockwell which was also featured on cover of Saturday Evening Post (see his link in comments above). Thanks for commenting.
  19. Ms.ChrystalShip, yes, they are all very old, most are wooden and thick. This one wasn't wooden, but very thick cardboard. Putting one together is a totally different feeling that a modern puzzle. Hard...
  20. Thanks Ms.CrystalShip...One of the prettiest for sure.
  21. Thanks Billretirecoll and Ms.CrytalShip for your kind feedback. Glad you like it!
  22. MsCrystalShip (from the Doors?), thanks for the kind comments. I'd estimate there were about 400 pieces. And you're right...very challenging w/no picture and crazy shapes, but that keeps me sharp! ...
  23. Thanks Roy for the reference to Saturday Evening Post. Thanks for your feedback jscotto and inky!
  24. So many cool things to see in the store pictures. Thanks for sharing (from another (2nd gen immigrant). Mom’s side also came to Minnesota - they were strong and tough individuals.
  25. Hi Toyrebel, unfortunately it was in an unmarked box, so no date to be found. However, I see from the picture I took of the completed put that there is something underneath the NRA on the puzzle itsel...
  26. Thanks for the comment and the chuckle from your story, Roycroftbooksfromme1. Yeah, those old wooden ones are very cool. I’ve obtained a dozen more...just awaiting the time to assemble. Cheers!
  27. I think you are correct Watchsearcher. When I googled under images, I find one that is that exact picture. Thank you for helping out.
  28. Sorry, my mistake: said 550 but it was 500 pieces instead.
  29. I found your ship puzzle posting! Very cool indeed. Same squiggly edges, although yours has much larger pieces. Thanks for sharing.
  30. Forgot to mention this was a wooden puzzle.
