You know, one puzzle I don't have is a Turkey. I guess I will have to rectify that problem. Maybe I can go get a puzzle and glue some feathers and a waddle to it. Now there's an idea, DIY turkey. Come to think of it, I don't have a cornucopia or any of the other Thanksgiving fixings.
But I do have A LOT to be thankful for this year. I still have Mr. Man and he's still putting up with my collecting obsession. Bug is still not into puzzles, but always helps with the crystal puzzle assembly.
I've got some amazing friends who I adore. I get to see SmaZ and his new creations on a regular basis, I meet Uwe for dinner once a fortnight at least.
I get to go on around 5 or 6 puzzle trips a year. I love IPP and the Guangzhou parties are just a blast.
I get to travel quite a bit for work and I usually manage to make a few puzzle purchases and a side trip to meet a fellow puzzler or two.
I accomplished a dream by mass producing my own puzzle. (and if my luck holds, it will be at a local attraction in the spring.)
I get to read Allard's and Kevin's and Gabriel's and Jerry's and Brian's and Neil's and Oli's blogs. That keeps me looking for puzzles to purchase, and others to drool over. All of them write so much better than I do, so if you haven't read their posts yet, go do so today!
Oh yes, and I got a few new puzzles this year....a few hundred that is!
Yep. Life is good. I have a lot to be thankful for. I hope you take the time to sit back and think over your puzzle blessings.
