Good to know that the jigsaw has docked, I was beginning to think that she had taken a cruise to the Caribbean, before docking in Florida!

Looking forward to the photos Rod  :)
I was proud to be involved with planning QE2's 50 year conference in September 2017 in Clydebank

Hi Rod - So glad to hear that QE2 (jigsaw) has docked at your house.  We are looking forward to commentary and photos as you fit her together !  Have a good few days away and good luck with the puzzle.  Yes, I think I am next ?  June

Hi Lynda - Yes, so glad to hear that QE2 (jigsaw) is now docked at Rod's !  She might have taken a little detour to retrace her former travels.   :D  June

Good to know it has arrived safely, Rod. Take your time... these jigsaws are there to be enjoyed! Find yourself a relaxed week-end to tackle it -- you may even find a relaxed fellow-puzzler to tackle it with :) .

As for me, the (somewhat bigger) jigsaw I started after this one is still not finished, but I made some headway last week-end. Picture from a gallery, some obscure painter who liked gradations of brown and green. I am having a pause now, but shall happily continue when next I feel inspired!

Hi Rod - Thanks for your post.  Yes, as Isabelle has said, take your time to enjoy fitting together our QE2 (jigsaw).  In fact, she is probably enjoying herself, by proxy, being moored at a friendly house where there are no worries. 

Hi Isabelle - Thanks for your post and update on your current jigsaw.  How many pieces in this one ?

To all - have a great day !  June

How is she doing, Rod? Are you enjoying each other's company?

The jigsaw is still sitting on the dining room table!
But it has made the move with us to our new house!
That is why it has not been started.
Hopefully over the weekend.

Congratulations on the house move, Rod -- may the jigsaw give you the first of many happy hours and days there :) .

Hope the new house goes well Rod.
Much easier to do it our way and take your home with you. Saves a heck of a lot of packing.

Problems with the plumbing? Just like being back at sea. Niagra Niagra !!!

All the best in your new home Rod.

Hi Rod, how is the cruising QE2 doing?

Hope the new house is organised, the jigsaw table up, and the photos coming our way!

I also see that June was next on the list of puzzlers for this one -- June, is this still right or am I getting my lists mixed up?

The voyage so far :

-- from Rob in Scotland
-- to Isabelle in Ireland
-- to Lynda in Scotland
-- to Rod in the United States

These are the others who have already said they would like to try it :

* June Ingram
* Jim Bennett
* Peter Mugridge

I suggest that, Rod, you might send it to June first (being in the same country and having generously sent her own jigsaw to me!) and it can then travel on to Jim and Peter in the UK.

Lots of puzzling fun in store for us!

Hi Isabelle -

Thank you very much for your post.  Yes, I think I am next on the list as we are both in the US.  I am looking forward to Rod's pictures of our QE2 (jigsaw ) !

OK, I finally started the jigsaw I have. Then got called into work for 2 days.
I am going to give up and get out of the jigsaw business!
I believe June is the next person on the list for this one?  Looks like QE2 in Tahiti?
Sorry to be so long, but with court appearances, moving house and work etc.....
SO, June if your address is still the same...it will go to you this week!

Hi Rod -

Thanks very much for the update.  There is not any real hurry if you would like to refit our QE2 as your time permits.  If not, then yes, my address is the same.  But no hurry if you would like to finish the refit.  Refits take awhile sometimes, especially if the jigsaw crew get called away for other things.
