Dragon jigsaw puzzle

Jigsaw puzzles are a family Christmas tradition. Well, to be honest, a tradition among the women of the family. This was assembled by my mother, wife, and sister-in-law.

The picture's great, but what we hairy-eared engineers what to know is -- how many pieces?

Roughly 1000 pieces, it's the Fire Dragon puzzle. The pieces are mostly fairly regular, but there are some with odd shapes such as ducks. And it doesn't fit on a standard-sized card table.

Thanks, Lauren. I guess I should have realized that "thousandths" in the title implied a 1000-piece puzzle.

What Gale does with her 1000- to 5000-piece puzzles is just to peel back the tablecloth until about half the table is exposed, then work the puzzle from the short end of the table. Time to eat? Roll the tablecloth back to normal again. Works like a charm.

We did that one after Christmas 2 years ago. Fun pretty and challenging.
