After we sat down for Thanksgiving dinner Thursday my wife and daughter broke out a one thousand piece panoramic owl puzzle. My daughter picked it out on a shopping trip with my parents a couple of years ago and after a couple of tries and very few pieces assembled, the puzzle always ended up back in the box.

These ladies are determined and worked through the weekend, including a late night session Saturday night. I woke up at 5 a.m. Sunday and my wife and oldest son were finishing up the puzzle. But much to their disappointment ONE piece was missing. The other 999 pieces came together but that one little missing piece drove all of us crazy.

The finished product
After my wife woke up later in the day she was telling me how surprised she was that only one piece was missing. I nodded in agreement as I reached into the refrigerator for a jar of salsa. I pulled it from the bottom shelf in the door and glanced down after lifting the jar. Low and behold, there laid the missing puzzle piece. I was stunned. My daughter snatched it up and quickly added it to the puzzle, deeming the job done.

Because the puzzle assembly moved from the living room to the dining room table, I'm guessing that one piece stuck to the jar of salsa as I had it for lunch the day before. Now we're frame shopping and will have a fun story to tell about the Charlie Zabarte owl puzzle.
