Air Mail In Progress

Air Mail – Re-marks – 500 pieces

On what was most likely my last puzzle shopping trip for quite some time I got myself a few collages. Collage puzzles are my happy place, and what I need right now are puzzles that make me happy. 💖

This collage of stamps is this first one I’ve picked to assemble, and it looks like it’s going to be great fun! Once the edge was assembled the first stamp I saw that I wanted to put together was Rosie the Riveter. She makes me smile, and also makes me think of the times we’re living in right now.

When called upon, the greatest generation did what needed to be done; men enlisted, women went to work in the factories, they rationed food, they limited their travel to save on resources for our troops, and much more. With Covid-19 running rampant across the globe, we all have to pitch in where we can – even if all we can do is stay at home when we are asked to, to help stop the spread of the virus.

As a disabled person who also has underlying conditions that make me more vulnerable, all I am really able do to pitch in and help out my community is to stay at home. All that’s being asked of me right now is to plant myself inside and stay there; I can absolutely do that without complaint.

In this unique situation in the world today everyone can help out in some way, even if the only way for us to help is to do nothing (or do puzzles) in our homes.

Just like Rosie, We Can Do It! 💪

    I just did this puzzle about a month ago! Lots of fun. Thank you for your pep talk. I agree – as a senior citizen if all you’re asking me to do is isolate for awhile consider it done! I’ll stay home and take care of myself so the young healthy people can get back to work and get the economy moving again. Everyone really must be puzzling as I checked my Amazon wishlist and all the puzzles I’ve been craving are out of stock!
    Lesson learned. 😦

    1. I’m with you Deb, I’m ok with staying in if that helps, and it does.

      Sorry to hear your wishlist puzzles are out of stock though, I forget everyone isn’t like me with a stockpile of many, many puzzles around. I hope when you’re ready to get more that you can find some you love. 🙂

    Great to read your perspective. It’s important to learn from what previous generations have done in times of adversity.

    Have you tried Bits and Pieces puzzles? I just received three that I bought on eBay. I just finished a 500 piece with fun illustrations of a Pacific Northwest harbor/coastline.
