road-trip-900

It’s finally nice enough outside to warrant using some of those “sick” days you racked up at work on something other than playing hooky. Schedule some time off, send out a mass text, jump in a car (rented or borrowed) and hit the road. To where? Who knows. That’s up to you. Personally, we just need to get away from it all, so middle-of-nowhere Wisconsin sounds as good as Atlantic City. It’s hard to justify $400 for plane tickets anywhere these days, so split the cost of gas and Combos (only the pretzel ones) and get to it. Remember: it’s about the journey and not just the destination.

Moon-Puzzle-IF2

We pride ourselves on being able to tackle problems and jigsaw puzzles like everyone else–from the edge pieces in. That’s a little more difficult when it comes to thousand piece adventures like the Moon puzzle you see here. In is out, out is in, and there’s an entire quadrant of almost fully gray pieces that depict the lunar surface, but all of that just adds to the productive difficulty you’ll experience when you’re assembling this jigsaw version of modern history. As they tell it, “July 16, 2019 marked the 50 year anniversary of the Apollo 11 launch – the historic mission to the Moon where Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin became the first of humankind to set foot on the Moon. Our Moon puzzle celebrates this momentous achievement and will challenge and delight puzzle solvers everywhere.”
