The piece left over would fit the empty space if it is turned Alan. There are never too many pieces or ones that don't fit.

I'll bet the missing edge piece is hidden under the puzzle .................I had one like that and as for the "extra" piece, look carefully at the picture Alan - there's a gap somewhere but it's often difficult to see if it's in a dark place when your screen is black ..........

As Bob said, there's always the right number of pieces and they all fit .............:cheers

Also move the little menu box around, I lost a piece under there the first time I did one. It took me about 3 weeks to find it but I still completed the puzzle before Peter :twisted:

When I am trying to find those 'hidden' holes n the puzzle, I drag the mouse pointer over it to highlight the whole puzzle in red - I can then see any missing bits very easily.

As per the others here, click on and drag the puzzle to see if any pieces have got buried under it. 

Normally, as Bob sets them up, the pieces are all correctly oriented but I have accidentally right-clicked the odd piece and rotated it. :roll:

The following post is intended for 'Mrs Robert'....

 

Dear Mrs Robert,

We have not met but I write to you ask you to use your influence on Bob, and attempt to persuade him to take down the 'Jigsaw' from YMR.

Since my husband joined YMR I have become accustomed to my house being strewn with various pieces of model railway rubbish, finding PVA glue on the sleeves of his best jumpers, sawdust in his cardigan pockets that finds its way onto the sitting-room carpet and deep score-marks on the dining room table.

I have learned to accept his newly aquired habit of raking through interesting-looking litter bins, diving into skips in his best clothes and have accepted his seemingly endless appetite for Cornflakes coupled with his insistence that I buy only the largest packets with white insides.

Finding my pastry-brushes full of dried Prit-Stick residue no longer distresses me, nor am I moved to tears to find Great Western Light or Dark Stone paint on my quilt-making cutting mat.

I am totally inured to the results of sticky earth-coloured paint being trod slipper-wise through the hall and to finding fragments of expanded polystyrene in places that have not seen the light of day since my mother put Johnson's Baby Powder on them.

The jigsaw is the last straw.

After a long wait for his arrival to drive me home I discovered the mobile phone he had promised to recharge was flat. I had to walk home in the unexpected rain and found that the washing on the line, near-dry on my earlier departure was soaking wet. Did I mention that I had been out at the hairdresser?

Totally absorbed in his office he had ignored the dog's usual pleas to 'go out' and I had to clean up the  the theft and consumption of a half-pound of minced beef, a ripe mango, eight ounces of butter and a large packet of peanuts. I shall have to burn the rush matting when it stops raining.

Hard-boiled eggs should be hard-boiled. Not black, cracked and fused with the bottom of the dried-up saucepan. Doubtless, the kitchen will smell better one day.

Please, in the interests of international sisterhood, use your best efforts to have the jigsaw puzzle taken down from YMR.

Yours faithfully,

Mrs Dooferdog.

P.S. I do not exempt that Peter Maxwell from his fair share of blame, having doubtless encouraged him.....

I have passed the message on via e-mail as I don't really want June breathing down my neck when she reads it.

Mrs Robert's reply.


Hello Mrs Dooferdog.
So nice of you to get in touch but, are you MAD.
I couldn't possible intervene with Mr Roberts Jigsaws.
What a lucky break for me when he came up with this little scheme. I just love the freedom it gives me.
Sit back and digest the following and, maybe take a leaf out of my book.
Taxi home from the hairdressers after you meet up with friends for either coffee or a quick lunch ?
Total control over the TV remote control.
That night out with the girls, he will love the house to himself without you asking "how long is that going to take" Dear.
Buy the ready meals, no more hard baked pans to clean.
When you sit down and think about it, Bob, sorry, Mr Robert, is doing us all a favour.
Must close now, have to look up the flights for those girlie 4/5 day breaks away from the harsh realities of life.
Thanks for getting in touch, if you need anymore suggestions, feel free to write again and I will see what else I can come up with.
Choo Choo for now,
June (Mrs Robert)
