I confess that I cannot.

Do you always have a puzzle going, Susie? How fun!! Don’t you wish LIFE was so easy to put together?
I hadn’t done one in a long time. I really enjoyed putting this one together, but was also glad to get my table back. I can’t really rest until it’s put together, so I would always be working on one if I had it out all the time.
I used to have a felt thingy that you could roll up your puzzle and the pieces would stay. Then you could have your table, and just put out the puzzle whenever you wanted to. I don’t have much time for puzzles any more though.
You know, I haven’t done a puzzle in a long time. In wonder if my boys might like doing one as a family? Hmmm….some old-fashion fun
Let me know if you try it! Computers are good, but there’s something to be said for working an old-fashioned puzzle. We did a lot when I was a kid. Fun to do together, and such a sense of accomplishment.
We LOVE puzzles around here! Our living room is kind of crazy from the time we take the Christmas tree down until spring when my hubby starts his lawn mowing business again. When we take the tree down we put up a card table in it’s place. We have a round 48″ top that fits onto the card table and it is a perfect spot for puzzles. Hubby and I have done 14 since Christmas and are working on #15 now. The current puzzle is a scenery picture given to us as a gift from a son-in-law. One of his sisters lives in Wyoming and when he was there visiting he took lots of pictures while he was out hiking near their home. He had this picture of a mountain creek and all the trees around, etc. made into a puzzle for us! Great idea, but the puzzle is extremely hard! We’ll get it done eventully! Our grandson brought us a puzzle from Australia when he was there–night skyline of Sydney with the Opera House in the forefront and a ferry boat race going on in the bay. That is the only puzzle we’ve ever given up on!!!! The pieces were cut so much alike it was impossible to tell if you had them in the right place…….:( Family members often sit down to put in some pieces and then brag about how many they put in!!
I grew up with my grandma having a puzzle on the card table, so many memories go along with this photo! Somedays I’d get carsick on the way to school (bus) and my grandma would pick me up. Then I’d get to spend the day with her, a puzzle, Mt. Dew and As the World Turns. What memories! When I visit now there is still a puzzle, cheap little cans of root beer but no As the World Turns! Goes to show, a picture is worth 1000 words. Thanks, Susie!
Jeanie, you’re my hero! That is such a neat idea to make a photo into a puzzle. This one was pretty hard with the painting, a lot of pieces blurred together. Sara, thanks for sharing such sweet memories with your grandma. In this case, the picture was also in 1000 pieces!
