After retiring from a business career, my husband began tackling jigsaw puzzles of one thousand plus pieces. Regardless the difficulty or time required to assemble, he has achieved success. In good humour I have gifted him with a few that I felt certain would defeat him; nevertheless, he has proven me wrong.

I bought my husband the raccoon puzzle introducing this blog because the critters roam our country property. He scorns them because they can carry rabies as well as their destructive garbage-eating tendencies.

The following puzzles are some of the multitudes that he has completed. These particular ones were selected to reflect places that we have explored. I hope you enjoy them. Are any of you puzzle-enthusiasts?
