Last week Lin related a bit of the good time she had while her daughter, Em, was home for a few days. Among other things, they worked a puzzle which we had sent to them. She called it, I believe, a "hellish" puzzle. It was difficult, the frustration deriving in large part from the fact that too many pieces "almost" fit into the space, but not quite.
Well, I would be remiss if I did not relate the fact that Lin reciprocated the challenge by sending this puzzle to us. It was difficult, too, possibly even "hellish," although I suspect we would need to ask Lin for her definition of the term. The difficulty of this one lay, in my opinion, in the bizarre shapes of the pieces, such that it was difficult to look at a space, then hold the "shape" in ones head long enough to find the corresponding piece.
Each puzzle in this exchange was a thousand piece gem. Good deal.
Thanks for the fun time, Lin!
