Persistent Benny, More Persistent Me
I came home yesterday to find Benny up on the puzzle table again. I had forgotten to move the chair far enough away so he couldn't climb on it from there. Needless to say, Mona was once again rent asunder. Fortunately, many of the pieces were still stuck together and I was able to get it back together in about an hour. I have the puzzle mostly done except for the black parts of the picture. I put those all in the box until the pieces with recognizable clues are in place. From that point on it will be a question of putting shapes of the same color together.
I have certainly been persistent with the task, and it has become a point of honor that I finish it, no matter what. Amazingly, not many pieces appear to be missing after all its falls to the floor. I won't know for sure until I finish it how many actually have disappeared, but what's there will be in place if its the last thing I do.
