It’s a jigsaw puzzle. It has 1,000 pieces. Put together properly it presents a pretty picture of a mountain reflecting off a lake, and the lake has some grub on it. I first thought those were brown ducks then they looked like water-based plants. That’s probably what they are but if I’m even a little wrong then that’ll raise a hullabaloo across this wide internet of ours and The Purging Lutheran is just not up for that today. Calling it ‘grub’ is my lazy way of being lazy.

Wikipedia claims that a British fella named John Spilsbury (no relation to The Pillsbury’s Doughboy – you know that’s what you were thinking) invented the first jigsaw puzzle. I suspect if anyone dug around long enough they’d find jigsaw puzzles were invented by the Chinese, inventors of many maddening small-pieced tile games requiring brains ruled by detail and concentrative powers. Perfect for My Sweet Rib. She probably bought this at a Holy Cross gararge sale but she’ll never have to buy an other ever again. She now has a wizz-bang jigsaw puzzle application on her I-pad and spends about 60 minutes a day pushing pieces across the screen. It fulfills her need for order while living in a post-Monica Geller environment.
