Next time (if and when there is a next time), I'll be sure to read the small print on the box because....
Although we began before Christmas, not much was accomplished. So, since Christmas and as of this writing, this is pretty much where we're at.
Pretty nice, right?
Well, we thought it was really coming along, until OS ("other son", our builder) came over the other night.
Once I showed him what we'd been working on, he sat right down and began studying the puzzle. Like the analytical person that he is, his eyes moved quickly to the box sitting at the end of the table. Focusing on the picture on the box...after he read the small print, he got my attention when he said, "Did you see the Puma's head?"

"What Puma?" I answered quickly stepping down into the sunken room. Wondering what he was studying while I was busy packing a goodie bag for him and "the boys" who built our house and garage.
"Right here, hidden in the mountain...down and to the right of the fox."
"Fox? What fox?,"
I said now standing next to him as he pointed to it in the purple mountains with his index finger. (see it under the visible brown bear to the right of the elk?)

Well all I can say is after several expletives later, the Pres and I discovered that not only are there visible animals...26 in all (mountain goats, an elk, two brown bears, other eagles, as well as Indians on horseback, a cluster of wild turkeys, wolves)..but also within the wings of the Eagle, there are supposed to be 14 hidden animals.
So far, we've discovered (note and emphasize the word "discovered" on the box NOT yet put together: a squirrel, an owl, a big horn sheep, the puma, a wolfs head, the fox, crows, an eagle, what looks like the head of a bear cub (?), buffalo, a white howling wolf, a snow-owl and a swan.
Next time...if there is a next time...I will read the small print...because as of this writing, I have found
three four eyeballs that belong somewhere!!
Did you spot a few critters?
