Positively Puzzling, Vol.1

Recently we rediscovered an interesting pastime: jigsaw puzzles. At the end of a long and often stressful day, sitting down at a puzzle with some music in the background, has created a wonderful way of unwinding. Overall it's been a positive experience.

Our first puzzle: Neuschwanstein Castle.

Cartoon puzzles are a lot of fun. This shopping mall scene was made a little more difficult in that it was a mirror image puzzle; the actual image was reverse of the image on the box. While we never did find Waldo, two famous characters we discovered were none other than comedians Laurel and Hardy.

Beautiful Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. I love this country! 😃

Not all puzzles are new. This is one of several we were gifted by a friend. Some others have since come from second hand stores, which occasionally reveal a missing piece or two. Still, puzzling has become an enjoyable pastime. 

Pencils, pencils, and more pencils. This one was certainly a challenge! However, it was made extra enjoyable in that our son and daughter-in-law were in town for a few days and also stepped into the fun. Great family times.

"I scream, you scream, we all scream for ice cream!" Remember that childhood chant? LOL. Whatever happened to summer's ice cream trucks? Memories! As a guy who likes his ice cream, and maybe a little too much, I thoroughly enjoyed this puzzle. 

One thing we discovered is just how small some puzzle pieces really are. It is really little wonder that sometimes pieces do go missing.

Well, that's it for this first edition of Positively Puzzling. The plan is for more editions to follow from time to time.

Thanks for the visit.

Peace (or is it, piece? -Ha).
