Turkey Tracks:  February 18, 2014

More Winter Pleasures

Kathleen and John Nixon often visit me in January or February.  Like me, they love Maine and love being here in the snow.  Nature graced them with 8 to 10 inches on their first night here.

One of the things we love to do is to work puzzles.  Kathleen and John have a favorite puzzle artist–Heromim.  And this year they brought two of these beautiful puzzles.  We set up the white folding table, add a card table for extra pieces, and drag up folding chairs from downstairs.  Then we set to work.

Here’s the first puzzle.   They let me choose which one to work first.

Heronim signs his puzzles in two ways:  signature and a tiny black cat on one puzzle piece.  You can see the black cat on the logo.  Kathleen found that piece almost right away as we sorted out the edge pieces.

Heronim’s pictures are set in California and, apparently, in MAINE.  I’ll see if I can find some of the latter.

So, we are playing, which is why you have not heard from me in a few days.  I will post something serious soon.  I promise.

Meanwhile, play is a very good thing.  And play with old friends or family is the best!!
