While dad was here recuperating, he would sit for hours solving puzzle after puzzle. I could not comprehend how a scattered numbers of here and there could keep him so engrossed as I Never had an affinity for numbers. I had to find out. It could not be so difficult. If anyone can do it.
And I did. Nothing but only 5*s will do. Not only does the brain gets twisted in every angle, the eyes roving round and round. A determination not to speculate when cornered. Even Charming coral fell into the spell. She sits beside me, scan the puzzle. Just as the elusive number has been put into position, I will pass it to her to tie up the loose ends. She would be totally exhilarated by her accomplishment.
