This is what I spent a good chunk of October and November doing:
I tried (and failed) to do this puzzle on my own once in high school...and now you all really know how cool I am. I came back to this puzzle. However, this time I had help.
Maybe the title of this post should have been "How Cool We Are."
Of course, this time I also had some opposition. Dinah has this love for sitting on the table - specifically, for sitting on the puzzle pieces on the table. She'll hop up, move around for a bit, and then just flop and sprawl all over the place. After a visit from Dinah there will usually be 5-10 displaced pieces on the ground. She's a terror.
