Here’s something fun everybody can do at Thanksgiving that does not involve a football, a television, a parade float, a stick of butter or even an iPad. Seriously! Okay not that seriously, because jigsaw puzzles are not meant to be serious. You may recall I wrote about these wonderful, handcut, wooden jigsaw puzzles made by Liberty Puzzles this summer.
Isn’t this a great puzzle?! It could be yours! Details below… And when Turkey Day weekend is over, you can put it away and bring it back again next year. Start a new family tradition! Does not contain trans-fats!
Puzzles are good for you, too, and more fun than eating broccoli, even though that is also good for you.
Nothing against broccoli. Don’t get all Michele Obama on me.
Look at the detail:
I worried about the company something terrible this fall because they are based in Boulder, and you remember those awful floods they had there. I emailed and heard back they were okay, but there was so much damage. OY.
Speaking of OY, since Thanksgiving this year coincides with the first night of Hanukah for the first time since, like, Moses was in kindergarten, I am thinking of adding a yarmulke to our turkey this year. Just a thought.
Another thought. If you have a youngun’ who might mess with you while you are doing the puzzle, either lock the little rascal in a closet, or print this part of the post and ask him to circle all the shapes (called whimsy pieces) he finds on the back and give him a nickel for each one.
I may try it on my husband. He would rather go to the dentist than do a puzzle. Which I find puzzling.
Okay so the giveaway–here goes: Leave a comment on something you love about Thanksgiving by Sunday, November 17. The winner will be chosen at random and we’ll get your puzzle to you before you can say sweet-potato-casserole. One entry per person, por favor.
One last thought. These puzzles make great gifts, and Liberty also makes custom puzzles from your own photos or designs, which is something to gobble about.
