How many eggs do I have?
A slightly different Halloween post.
I sometimes play games on Facebook even though I realize that they are used by Trolls to gather information. My cousin Becky put a puzzle on and I read it and responded with my answer, but I was wrong. Here is her puzzle, I suspect none of you will get it wrong.
Read carefully and slowly: it's a brain exercise!!

How many eggs do I have? 🤔
I went back and re-read the puzzle and realized the mistake I had made. When I posted the correct answer, she said to me, I was surprised when you got it wrong”. I replied, “You taught me a good lesson.”
No matter how smart we think we are there is always far more going on that we are yet to see, Even now. So, when I am feeling bored or lonely again, I look a little closer.
When my grandson comes to visit from Australia, we sometimes play the game “Where's Waldo?” I find that this game is an exceptionally good game in stretching one’s mind. I find it easy sometimes but other times I find it awfully hard. As we get older playing games is a good way to keep our mind focused. When I got my new phone, I started to play solitaire and have about a 75%-win rate, but I started with the easy games and have moved to the medium-hard games. One day I will move to the more difficult games.
What do you do to keep your mind active and young? Besides playing games and writing, I listen to many different types of music and I also physically keep active by playing golf and walking. By the way, you may have noticed I have not given the answer to the puzzle. If you comment or give an answer, I will tell you if you are right or wrong. Have fun.
