  • THE THURSDAY PUZZLER


    It's time for this week's Thursday Puzzler!

    The theme of this Puzzle is: DOG DAYS OF SUMMER


    Contrary to common conjecture, the Dog Days do not take their peculiar name from weather that ďisnít fit for a dog,Ē or heat that is so extreme it drives dogs mad.  The Old Farmer's Almanac explains "The phrase 'Dog Days' conjures up the hottest, most sultry days of summer," coinciding with the rising, at sunrise, of Sirius, the dog star, in the constellation Canis Major. If itís not the Dog Star cursing you with sultry summer heat and madness itís the moon driving you to lunacy. It seems you canít win when it comes to the celestial bodies.

    This puzzle has 88 pieces and there is no rotation involved.

    Tip #1: To make your puzzle full screen, click on the square box with the arrow in the bottom right corner of the screen. This will maximize your viewing area for assembling the puzzle. You can also change the background color using the "gear" icon.

    Tip #2: To PAUSE your puzzle, simply click on the "p" on your keyboard. To resume, click on your puzzle screen.

    Please post your completed puzzle in this thread and be sure to use the Spoiler (Sp) around your puzzle.

    Note: If your puzzle does not give you the Congratulations Box, just include the "100% and time" shown below the completed puzzle in your screenshot.

    Each participant who completes the puzzle will receive:
     50,000 PA Credits and 6 points towards the AUGUST Forum Events Badge.
     You will have until 8 a.m. EDT tomorrow August 10th, to submit your puzzle.

    Here is The Thursday Puzzler . . . .
