I enjoy doing crossword puzzles. Despite dabbling in the Ipad NY Times version, my preference is the old fashioned method using a pen and the daily newspaper. Each time I do a crossword puzzle, I think of my mother. I would visit her on the way home from work and she would make me a cup of tea and we’d work together on her incomplete puzzle. If I solved one of the missing words, she gasped “Oh jeezus!” from the obvious solution. She was highly intelligent and fastidious and hated not being able to finish what she started.
