Well, this sure isn’t a bucket you would want to kick. You could break your foot! I watched one of these things at work once. In one scoop it picked up over a thousand pounds of dirt, and dumped it into the back of a truck. Imagine the size of the sand castle you could […]
Sorry I’m a little late posting Tuesday’s puzzle. We had some excitement around here. Three tornadoes touched down in our area Sunday night. Today’s jigsaw puzzle is of some of the damage over at my father’s house. The car belongs to a friend of their granddaughter’s, and the car probably prevented the tree from going […]
Spring time is here, and I thought this nice picture by Pawel Ochota in Poland would be a good start for a new week. The nice thing about spring is all the birds chirping. The bad thing about spring is all the birds chirping, especially when you are trying to sleep. There is this one […]
I like this photograph because it reminded me of a beach hut I once stayed in while in Bali.
Bali was nice. The weather was great and I almost hated to leave.
I always thought a wine cellar was down in the ground, under the house or restaurant. Apparently in France they can be above ground too. These old, old buildings are designed to remain cool, and to store the wine in before it is bottled. I can see centuries of tradition in these old buildings. Hope […]
Friday’s Jigsaw Puzzle Warm weather, at last! My neighbor is already down at the beach. I’m looking forward to getting a little bit of sun, and taking advantage of the nice temperatures. What about you? Do you have any plans to get out this weekend? You should.
Thursday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle A couple of weeks ago I had an interview with a nearby NASCAR team, for a job. No, not to race. To be a crash test dummy, of course! Just kidding. It was for a position in their IT department. I think I may have crashed and burned over that one. […]
This bridge does not actually appear to be made of chain, nor is it made of rocks. If it were, driving cars across it might be a little bit tough. I actually have several photographs of it, and in one, (not this one) you can see a car on it, although cars are no longer […]
Every once in a while I come across a photograph that just makes a good jigsaw puzzle.
Today’s jigsaw puzzle is one that could also buy at the store.
With the nice weather this weekend, I almost made it out into the woods, but I was afraid that creepy little girl I mentioned in yesterday’s jigsaw puzzle was still out there. I settled with walking in the front yard instead. Spring is officially here, so today’s jigsaw puzzle is of a branch with a […]
Like this little girl with a red cloak and hood. The picnic basket she was carrying was a tad bit unusual, but the tattoo of a wolf on her cheek weirded me out.
Saturday’s Jigsaw Puzzle Koekelberg’ s Basilica is also known as the National Basilica of Koekelberg, located in Brussels. Isn’t that where they grow those yuckie Brussels sprouts? Well, maybe not. I’ve been to St. Peter’s Basilica once, years ago. It was huge! Well, I have to go eat my vegetables now. Yuck.
As a kid, I loved saying the word “Amsterdam.” I would get a case of the silly giggles. You go figure out why. In Amsterdam, there are lots of things to see and do. You can even take a tour of the Amsterdam Canals if you want. There are a lot of historical places to […]
My grandmother had one of these tables. I’m sure there are a lot of folks that remember them. Way, way back then, if your house had a phone, it had only one, and your choice of where it was installed was limited. As it was considered a luxury item, you had to get it’s own […]
Wednesday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle I’m a tad bit late posting today’s jigsaw puzzle. I kind of got a wee bit lost on the way home from the pub. Some stupid little guy with a funny hat and a beard was playing games with me, and took my money. Seriously! I didn’t even think someone that […]
The wood in a tree can be hard. Ergo, today’s puzzle is a tad bit hard. I can hardly finish the wood in the puzzle from the knot of wood here, otherwise I would finish the wood as well as I could finish it. I’ll need some sandpaper. A lot of sandpaper. Better get started. […]
Warm weather finally came back, and the official start of spring is right around the corner. Since it’s not quite here yet, I figured why not do a jigsaw puzzle of a not quite real butterfly? I can tell we have some crazy weather coming, though. We have lettuce sprouting out in our garden, and […]
I don’t know why this photograph was named ‘Finka.’ I did some searching, and this is from Mallorca, in Spain. It appears that, translated into English, ‘Finka,’ or ‘Finca’ means a small house or villa, used for tourists to rent. This one looks like it has a nice courtyard. Now I know if I go […]
It was once under Roman rule, and is a popular tourist destination.
The photograph used for Saturday’s jigsaw puzzle is a shot of it at night.
The monuments to the dead range from simple unmarked graves, to simple urns (for the cremated) to elaborate tombs with statues such as this angel.
With the warmer weather, we will be seeing the flowers bloom soon. Until then, I chose a white lilium for Thursday’s jigsaw puzzle. Watch out for the bees, and take the time to smell the flowers.
The weather outside today was amazing! After weeks of crazy cold weather and snow every few days, it was a nice 72 degrees outside.
I found the view of the two trees outside the factories to be a little encouraging. It looks like there is a small field for people to enjoy. I wonder if there are any picnic tables around? I once had a job where I would go outside in the summer for lunch, and sit under […]
Monday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle Well, it’s Monday. Time to get back to work. Gotta earn that paycheck so the taxaholics can get their unfair share, and build another $11.5 million dollar bus stop roof, or something else just as silly. Many small towns live and die by these factories. When the business is good, the […]
I figured with the photograph being in black and white, it would make for an interesting change of pace, as well as make it a tad bit tougher.
Get ready. It’s time for a semi-tough jigsaw puzzle. It took me a while to play this one, but it was a lot of fun. These are the gold gates to the palace in Fes, Morocco. There you will find the University of Al-Karaouine, the world’s oldest continuously operated university. Fes has a rich history, […]
Today’s jigsaw puzzle is a bit different. The image is a little bit smaller in size, and I picked a different kind of subject matter. It is a close up of the blooms of a Pink Dogwood tree. When I was a kid, I thought that dogs had something to do with the trees (other […]
This lonely little church sits out in the middle of nowhere, with nothing but a little tree to keep it company.
The one time I tried to make an ashtray, it ended up looking like a coaster. And no, I never had one of those moments like in “Ghost” either, dang it.
