    A friend of mine knows how much I love putting puzzles together. Like I told her, I'm not a team player when it comes to putting together "my" puzzles. As I said above, about DH finding that one lost piece and putting it into the puzzle, it was extra funny when my friend sent me this cartoon. It really made me laugh.

    CathyA - thanks. Beautiful owl! I love the animal puzzles, I just don't seem to get many of them.

    We just tried a 500 piece puzzle and it was so pleasant that I just bought another. The pieces in the 100 piece puzzle were so small, and we were getting frustrated, and it wasn't the joyous puzzle experience. Found a 500 piece at a Goodwill and it is the sweet spot--I feel absolutely ancient, that's the only downside. But we both enjoyed it, and it was relaxing.

    Congrats on finding a puzzle you like! I'm not sure what you mean by the "I feel absolutely ancient". I love doing puzzles! I only have one left in the house right now and keep thinking about setting up the puzzle table, but I can't/won't. If I do, everything else will fall to the way-side and I just have too many projects and things to do first. LOL. Maybe sooner rather than later, though.

    It was the 500 piece thing that made me feel old--the 1000 piece puzzles had pieces that were too small to see! So it was an eyesight/arthritis dexterity thing, that's why I said that.

    LOL. Thanks for the explanation. I was thinking it was the actual "activity" making you feel old. I can relate to the eyesight!

    So we bought another 500 piece puzzle, a Springbok, which had the weirdest shapes ever, which made it much harder and upped the annoyance factor.

    I am now learning to look at the shapes to see if we are going to like it.

    We are attempting a 1000 piece one that is high in annoyance because of tiny pieces, but it's a great picture, and we are out of puzzles, and I'm too cheap to buy them right now.

    We need more estate sale puzzles! Last week I saw one in a plastic bag, no picture, for 5 dollars. That's insane.

    I am drooling over this one right now, once we force ourselves to finish the 1000 piece-er.

    We had a stash of 500 piece puzzles maybe 5 or 6 which we didn't use in the winter. We've done 2 so far. The are not too hard, pretty pictures and from the Dollar General store. The are only about 11 X 15 so don't take up too much space.

    Received thanks from a friend... got her 29 puzzles (varieties she liked) last summer from garage sales. It is helping her save her sanity now.
