I recently found a website in which creators discuss the thinking behind a given puzzle. My neighbor, for instance, had published the recent Mother's Day puzzle. Diagonally, the black spots made out the letters MOM. Now this is against the rules which say that the black spots have to be symmetrical. But then the letters would spell MOW which would not be consistent with the theme. In the review they show his picture, which does not look a bit like above. In it he has thick black hair and a beard. Now he has sandy , graying hair, a very handsome man. I guess he was in his 20s in the photo.
I did buy the glass pretty for my patio but it took two trips. I went there yesterday with Maya thinking she would like to see the pygmy goats and the Shetland ponies, no she did not (prefers our bunnies, squirrels and chipmunks). Unfortunately the stake came out of the assembly as I was wrestling with it to bring it to the counter. They had to call in the maker of this later in the day for me to pick it up today. I also got a few more perennials to fill in the missing ones in my rock garden. My edelweiss of 5 years? Gone, baby, gone.
And another beautiful day to bike and run. This week alone, I have propelled myself over a hundred miles between running and biking (not to mention my hike). You'd think I'd be skin and bones but
I blame the alcohol. I have switched to gin and tonics to sip while Steve and I sit on the patio in the evening. Obviously I should give it up.
Tomorrow: hopefully a long bike ride before the rain, a visit to Josh's family and then a Orange is the New Black marathon.
