I never win anything, but amidst the calls about satellite TV and voting for Obama (I AM! I WILL! Stop calling me!), I just got a call from the toy storeeithni and I visited Monday night. It seems my raffle entry won me a 250-pc safari puzzle! YAY!
Tomorrow I'll go pick it up, see what level of difficulty it is, and then either keep it for the library, or give it to one of the teachers. Then I'll take my state purchasing card (which I was planning on shopping with there tomorrow anyway) and buy something else for the library.
This is very cool. I never win anything. I mean, I'm not alienorh, after all.
The 250 piece puzzle is great--all the wild animals from Africa, painted together, sort of staring out at you. I think the kids will love it! I'll see if the teachers want it, and if not, I think the kids' unit or the teenage boys' unit might.
I also got a 1000 piece puzzle of two mounted knights charging each other with lances in a clearing as the sun goes down, lots of beautiful tents and heraldry, with a celtic knotwork border. Only $16. That's for the library! If no one else works on it, I will. ;)
