Addicted to Crosswords
When I visit her these years, she is always up for a game of Scrabble, something we both love. This is when those crossword notebooks come in handy.
I work on a crossword puzzle each day myself. In fact I am a little addicted because my day doesn't seem complete now without it. These years I'm working out Adrian Powell's crosswords found in the Ottawa Citizen. For many years, I used Walter D.Feener's puzzles in the National Post. In fact I was so accustomed to Walter's style it took me some time to adjust to Adrian's. I use a couple of crossword dictionaries including the one shown.
I've read that working on word games like crosswords is good for the brain. It seems to be holding up for my mother who is still as sharp mentally as she always was. Hopefully, it can work for me too...fingers crossed...
