‘A Dickens of a Christmas’ puzzle in April?

So I'm walking thru the shop a few days ago when I spotted "A Dickens of a Christmas" puzzle being crafted. I did a double-take because normally this limited-edition puzzle is ordered during the Holidays. But Paula and gang have got lots of special deals going on. It's a fun, Holiday puzzle and I thought you'd enjoy seeing it in progress.

Bottom photo represents what's been happening around here… windy and cool…  BUT today is sunny and going to be in the high 60's so I'm heading to the driving range this afternoon to knock some rust off my so-called swing. Tomorrow is first open day at Hanover Country Club and I plan to play 9 holes (if I don't run out of golf balls).

Wired magazine features Champ, a Stave Trick puzzle.

This morning, Friday, I received an email from Evan McGlinn, our PR whiz. Last night he was sitting on British Airways plane bound for London when he picked up new Wired magazine and was thumbing thru it when he came upon an article about us and Champ, which he knew about. But WOW what a huge beautiful photo of Champ. That's Evan's thumb in lower left holding Wired as he took the photo with his iPhone. I do not have a copy of this Wired yet so I'm going to run down to Borders and pick one up.
