The only place I make time to do an occasional jigsaw puzzle is at the lake. This 550 piece loon puzzle made for a fun quiet day at the coffee table. Until.
Sealed-in-plastic puzzles never have pieces missing, do they? Once, when I was a child, we got a thousand-piecer with one duplicate piece and one missing piece. But that was 45 years ago. There’s quality control now, right? I looked everywhere. The piece, it is missing. Missing. As in not in the box. How’s that for green apples? Kim Norlien (“the painter of peace and tranquility” TM) probably cares. Before he sold rights to his loon painting to the puzzle guys he must have made them promise that when they chopped it up into itsy bitsy pieces and packed it in a plastic bag before stuffing it in a a box and then wrapping the box with cellophane, that they’d not leave any peace out.
