Well, I guess I need to plant myself in front of the computer for a while. I’d love to see more green, especially in today’s economy. Anyway, I had fun doing the tough version of Sunday’s jigsaw puzzle. I usually do the medium or the hard version.
I’ve heard that it is more of a squeak than a singing sound, but if you have partied hard enough, even a squeak can sound like singing.
I want a pony! he said, bottom lip trembling slightly. (Counting to myself) seven, eight, nine, ten. I want a PONY! he repeated, his voice almost yelling. Look, I replied, trying to control my temper. I told you we don’t have any place to keep a pony. (Continued below the puzzle) Sniffling, he gave me […]
I mention this only because it is an important part of history, and the title of today’s surprise jigsaw puzzle is “Roots”, but it is the other kind of roots.
Wednesday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle There was a show on TV last year called “Pushing Daisies” that I liked. With most TV shows I like, they usually end up getting canceled. Sigh. Well, if it is any consolation to other fans of the show, in about ten years they will recycle it into a movie, or […]
Opportunity knocks but once. Unless she really, really wants in.
Actually, Opportunity just sits outside the door and cries until I let her in. She’s my cat.
According to Wikipedia, Tunisia is the smallest of the nations situated along the Atlas mountain range, and is the northern most country in Africa.
There is something about the smell of good cooking coming from a country kitchen on a Sunday afternoon. Fried chicken, biscuits and gravy, mashed potatoes, green beans, and a chocolate cake for desert. Then there’s the sound of a NASCAR race coming from the living room TV, good friends and family over to watch and […]
Since my stupid cat is always surprising me with the dumb stuff he does, I thought I would make Saturday’s jigsaw puzzle a surprise puzzle.
Well, to me, it looks like a cherry life saver, not a belt. Then again, I didn’t take the photograph so what do I know?
Yesterday we had the camels, today we have the desert.
Sand desert, not desert as in cheesecake.
Although I did date a girl who’s cheesecake tasted like sand.
If you like to play tourist, then you might want to check out the Kasbah Taourirt, located in Morocco.
It has high walls and maze like streets to explore.
It’s President’s Day, a day where we celebrate the birthdays of several dead past presidents by going out and getting discounts on stuff we didn’t want to buy in the first place but bought anyway because we got such a good deal on it. (Shameless plug – the 101 Kids CD is on sale at […]
Sunday’s Jigsaw Puzzles It’s Valentine’s day, so I have a Valentine’s day Jigsaw Puzzle surprise for you. In addition to today’s jigsaw puzzle, there are two brand new Animated Jigsaw Puzzles on page 17 of the Animated section. After you finish playing the puzzles, take that special someone out someplace or spend some time with […]
I got a tax notice in the mail today. Somehow the photograph of these chains for today’s jigsaw puzzle seemed appropriate. Today’s magic number is 46.
Friday’s Jigsaw Puzzle I need a nap. I had to get up early today to go sign some paperwork. I hate signing paperwork when I’m not awake. Last time I did that, then took a nap, I woke up thinking to myself, “I joined the what?” Next thing I knew, I was on a ship […]
They can be a nice place to go for a walk, as long as you don’t fall in and remember to keep an eye out for the alligators.
It’s time for a surprise puzzle. It’s a Rhino. The question is, is it an animal, or a car? (Hey, they make a Cougar, a Lynx, and other cars named after animals.) It could be a record (Rhino Records?) Anywho, try not to get run over.
I think “Danmark” is the name of the country, and I can only guess that “Sondervig” means either ‘beach,’ ‘wall,’ or ‘rust.’
When you arrive at your destination several hundred miles away, you simply drive your car off the train and go about your business.
Note: The 101 Kids Jigsaw Puzzles CD-ROM is on sale! I found a nice photograph of a mountain farm with sheep on it, but it was too tall to use as a single puzzle, so I split it in half to make two puzzles. The first one is the upper half of the farm, showing […]
This looks like where the water runs off from an old mill, after it has turned the wheel. There are several old mills within an hours drive of where I live, some of which have been turned into tourist attractions. There is one mill in particular that is supposed to be haunted. Yup, it’s not […]
I didn’t want to do anything fancy for Friday’s jigsaw puzzle. I wanted to keep it something simple. A child’s sand bucket on a stump is about as simple as it gets. Unless you try to figure out what is inside the bucket, of course. OK, I’ll tell you what is inside the bucket. It’s […]
Train “Surprise, surprise, surprise!” “Shut up, Pyle!” “Well, golly, Sargent! I thought you would be excited to get to go on a train.” “Pyle! It’s a troop transport. We’re going to war, and probably aren’t coming back.” “Well, golly gee, Sargent. Didn’t we get round trip tickets?” “Ahhhh, just shuddup and get on the train!” […]
“What kind of pollution is considered allowed?”
Hopefully, none, but the reality is that certain levels of pollution are considered allowable by our government.
“Another bridge? What’s up with that?” Bob asked. “Hey, I like bridges, especially the walking bridge kind.” “Yeah, but you just did one a few days ago. You’re getting redundant,” he said. “You mean ‘repetitive,’ right?” “Whatever. What’s so special about bridges anyway?” Bob asked, while looking over the edge at the water far, far […]
