All time 10th place

Well finally I've made it into the 'All time top 10' for number of puzzles solved emoticon .. a few minutes ago I just managed to squeeze past AZSue ..  grabbed a few screen shots quick .. before AZSue whizzes past again hahahha

I just wanted to do it once in my lifetime ... at 61 years old I was beginning to think I would never get there ... but our wonderful authors have made some great Griddlers lately and I was flying along ... but thank goodness I can ease off now ... the pace at the top is frenetic ... now I shall try some of the harder Griddlers .. the 'hour plus' to solve ones ... 

.... and of course watch AZSue come whizzing gaily by me again ... emoticon

Well done! That must be a great feeling! emoticon

I'm still dreaming of getting into the Top 100, but at the moment, I'm miles away... Well, maybe one day. It's such a long way to go... I guess I'll just have some fun solving Griddlers, whether I'm getting anywhere or not. ;)

You made quite an accomplishment.  CONGRATULATIONS!!!  And it is a good thing that you "captured proof" of all that hard work, otherwise you might some day think that you were just imagining it.  Years ago, I tried to climb the ranks point-wise.  Then "life" got in the way.  And it can be crazy trying to maintain position, as you know.  All in good fun though!

Thank you for all the good wishes ... the last few weeks were really tense until I finally achieved my goal ... yes, I know it's 'only' a game ... but for me it's all about self achievement .. emoticon

I have several disabilities that mean I am fairly sedentary, can be quite dreadful at concentrating for long periods ... I get distracted easily ... find it difficult to 'let go' of thoughts that race along helter skelter in my head emoticon

But, the enforced concentration and logic needed to solve a Griddler seem to calm my thoughts .. relax me ... and I can 'chill out' emoticon I can achieve quite long periods of concentration doing a tricky Griddler ... in fact I sometimes think Griddlers keeps my sanity intact hehehe 

Most of all I love seeing the beautiful pictures that come alive square by square, block by block ... I can marvel at the creativity of our wonderful authors, enjoy funny cartoon creations, Old Masters, landscapes, make intricate buildings or vehicles, I feel like an architect, mechanic, fashion designer etc., all from just building a picture up ... for short periods I can see the world through other peoples eyes emoticon

More than anything .. Griddlers is really FUN !!

I understand how you feel. My goal, for now, is to reach the top 50 in trigglers. It a long and painfull road.
Congratulation.
