I use to enjoy doing puzzles. The key word is "USE" to! I got one for Christmas, with 1000 pieces! Do you realize how SMALL some of those pieces are? And do you realize they are not all uniformly cut so you can eye-ball the unmatched pieces and match them in your mind's eye with others?? Well.... me either!! Boy, times have sure changed!! But now that I've begun the challenge it has become just that... a big challenge to see if I can get it all done.
