The cat in today’s jigsaw puzzle has some pretty orange eyes. It’s the first one I’ve seen like that. I have to wonder if it was photo-shopped or not. In any case, the puzzles have a few extra pieces today, so spare a few extra minutes to play.
It was a dark and cloudy night… So there I was, late at night, following the suspect as he crept along the street while trying to avoid the lights. I could avoid the lights, too. Problem was, I kept tripping over these strange bumps in the road. After that last stumble, I gently placed my […]
I’ve been hearing a lot about the world cup in the news lately, and when I found this photograph from the 2006 World cup, I thought it would make a good puzzle. To be honest, I have no ideal what all these people and balloons have to do with it, but I imagine it has […]
Well, there’s always a football game on TV somewhere. I think there’s even a football channel. I don’t really watch football that much. I have a lack of time and a lack of cable TV. My relatives all like football, and I have attended a few games, including pro football games in the past. Way, […]
Saturday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle Cats are strange creatures. (I would say they are puzzling creatures, but that would be like saying rain is wet.) My wife’s new kitten decided to start playing with the other cat today. The other cat just wanted to be left alone. The kitten refused to get the message, until the […]
This is the strangest daisy I’ve ever seen. How did it get that red color? Puzzling, I guess. In any case, it was time for a flower, so here it is. Just please, don’t eat the daises.
The only reason that Thursday is laundry day is that I’m out of clothes for Friday. While casual Friday is nice once in a while, I don’t think they would appreciate me showing up in shorts and a t-shirt. Anyway, today’s jigsaw puzzle has a few more pieces than usual for each version, plus the […]
The Beach I know where I’d rather be right now. Can you guess from the picture? That’s right, I’d rather be in a beer commercial. As long as it was on the beach, that is. Especially if I was getting paid for it. For now, the best I can do is to work a jigsaw […]
The Konik horse is actually a small semi-wild pony. As I get requests for horse jigsaw puzzles from time to time, I was happy to run across this photograph. Do me a favor. If you know any horse lovers, tell them about today’s jigsaw puzzle. Thanks, Wayne
Monday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle I have no idea what “Rumbo al Huaytapallana” is, but I think it means “train tunnel.” Of course it could be the name of some place, too. In any case, I turned it into a jigsaw puzzle.
The local museum has several old, old buildings. I seem to prefer museums like that to ones that are simply a fancy brick building holding a bunch of old stuff. Seeing the houses and buildings people actually lived and worked in makes the history more real. Anyway, history is often a puzzle, so this bit […]
Saturday’s Jigsaw Puzzle I liked the way the photographer used shadows to create this effect, and was happy to learn it also makes the puzzles a little bit more difficult than normal. Enjoy the challenge, and the weekend.
This week has been a real Bear! I’m so tired, I can’t think up anything to say about today’s daily jigsaw puzzle, so I think I’ll just go hibernate for a week or so while you enjoy the puzzle. Wayne
I had a project I wanted to work on, but I couldn’t find my art supplies. I looked all over the place, and when I was about to give up, my wife told me to leave her stuff alone. Gritting my teeth, I looked around some more and I found my art stuff a few […]
I used to do magic tricks when I was a kid. I wanted to be a prestidigitator – a magician. The only thing I was able to make disappear was some time, and the cards I managed to lose. Still, I had fun, and learned some important lessons. For example, one thing you absolutely have […]
This little wooden bridge reminds me of some I saw while living in Japan. I hope to have a Japanese garden one day, with a bridge like this going across the koy pond I’d like to have. Wax on, wax off… I found the plans on how to build one of these a few years […]
Today I have a bit of an animal theme going on. On the blog there are two new mystery jigsaw puzzles, both animal related. I picked a photograph of starlings for today’s daily puzzle. We have a pet starling that we got about nine years ago or so. She was just a baby when she […]
Shaken, not stirred, I said. Yes sir. One olive or two, sir? he asked. One, I replied while slightly adjusting my bow tie. Looking in the mirror behind the bartender’s head, I spotted HER approaching. A brief shudder of fear went through my body like an electric shock, but I gave no outward sign. I […]
I found this great vector drawing by Pawel Ochota called “Utopia.” It sort of reminds me of one of the Myst games, or even scenes from Avatar. It also makes a great jigsaw puzzle for kids of all ages and sizes. So I put in four extra versions for kids, ranging from six to 40 […]
I don’t have much to say about Friday’s jigsaw puzzle, except that if I could somehow do a ‘scratch & sniff’ puzzle on the computer, I would. It would smell like pizza. (Hey, if I wanted to smell tulips, I’d go to my neighbor’s flower garden.)
Thursday’s Jigsaw Puzzle My family used to go to a lake and stay at a house my grandfather owned when I was a young kid. Since then, I’ve liked places like the village on the lake in today’s jigsaw puzzle. Small, quiet, nice views. You can go for a nice walk or catch some fish, […]
I’ve never really acquired a taste for apricots. I prefer peaches and plums, myself. Dried apricots aren’t that bad if mixed into a trail mix kind of snack, though.
In some parts of the world, stairs can wind around and abruptly take you from a run down area to a very modern, new looking place.
The old and the new often exist side by side.
Big Machine Monday’s are like this big machine in today’s jigsaw puzzle. It can seem intimidating at first, but you just have to take it one step, or piece, at a time. Before you know it, Tuesday will be here. Note – I have a new Animated jigsaw puzzle on page 18 of the Animated […]
The weather so far this weekend was great, if a little hot. OK, a lot hot. It’s perfect beach weather, and while you are there, you might as well get some exercise. Me? I like exercise. I can watch people exercising all day. Now if you will excuse me, I have to go exercise my […]
This young man looks like he can use some customers at his market. Market vendors like this are pretty common in many countries. Here in the USA the closest thing we have are the farmer’s market and roadside vendors. You can get some good fruits and vegetables from a place like this, and at a […]
Now the question about today’s surprise puzzle is, is the Desert we are talking about the dry, hot kind, or is it the kind you can eat? If it is the kind you eat, does it come from some place with arches? Perhaps it is a little bit of both. In any case, this is […]
Koala Bear In Southern Australia I have to wonder if a Koala bear from North Australia sounds different than one from South Australia? Of course, a southern Koala bear would sound different from a northern one, too. “Hay, ya’ll. Didja bring me any bamboo shoots and gravy?” Which leads to the next question: Would there […]
I received an invitation to see a tennis match. I really hope I can find a good seat. Do you see a good one here? I wonder if they sell popcorn here, or if I have to bring my own?
