I am living in an Independent Living Retirement Village with 120 residents.
We have a Men’s Group meeting each week for about 90 minutes and I introduced a weekly puzzle time using “Quizzles” from books by Michael Pohl. These have been greatly enjoyed and I am sure that memories have improved over the weeks as they are usually solved within a few minutes.

Sadly I am almost at the end of the third book and I am looking for a replacement puzzle source. I was looking for “Rebus” puzzles on line but cannot trace any yet. I have tried anagrams, which are quite easy to compose, but harder to solve, and they are not popular as yet.

I cannot claim to be a carer but I am, at the age of 87, the chair of the Residents’ Committee and try to keep everyone happy.

hi Molly
Very many thanks for the king words and also for the three links.
I will certainly explore them and hope they will give me a fresh look at the possibilities of stretching the brains of my fellow oldies.
I am most grateful'
Cheers
John
