St. James Park is the oldest of the Royal Parks of London. It’s 53 acres in size, and dates back to 1532. Buckingham Palace is on the west side of the park and it has a rich history. I chose this photograph for today’s jigsaw puzzle because of the vibrant colors, and the old, old […]
Summer is almost gone. Today it only got up to about 78 degrees. It was still plenty warm to go outside and enjoy the weather. It was a good barefoot day, or you could at least wear sandals like the girl in today’s jigsaw puzzle. Speaking of which, today I have included an extra version […]
I was trying to find a good picture to use for Tuesday’s jigsaw puzzle when I found a picture of a Nemo, also known as a clown fish. I saw a hard copy jigsaw puzzle of the movie Nemo at a store not too long ago. It was designed for small kids, though. Only 24 […]
Monday’s Jigsaw Puzzle Lau Pa Sat is the colloquial name of Telok Ayer Market, a historical building, and it means “old market.” The building has been replaced several times over the years. It currently serves as a food center, and on weekends live bands play on the stage located in the center of the market. […]
I plan on having my own Japanese garden one day, much like the one’s I enjoyed when I lived in Japan. They are nice, peaceful, and can be rewarding. This tree twists in some strange ways, and makes for a challenging jigsaw puzzle.
I was talking with Bob about the painting in today’s jigsaw puzzle. I liked it because I used to own a 9′ 7″ Webber Concert Grand Piano many years ago. (I was a piano technician at the time.) I told Bob I used to play on a piano like that. “Really?” he asked. “Yes, I […]
Beams, as in “Beam me up Scottie.” Beams, as in “Beams of light” or “Sunbeams.” (When I was little, I thought people were talking about ‘Sun Beans.’) In today’s jigsaw puzzle, the beams are beams of wood, out in the sun drying, soon to built into something useful, such as a log cabin. Or they […]
Water Slide Today’s jigsaw puzzle is a little on the tough side. Sort of like going down these water slides in your shorts, when the water is turned off and it’s 96 degrees outside at noon. Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Bob and Sue wanted to go to the water park but were afraid they […]
This view of a Chinatown is in Singapore. I was lucky enough to visit it years ago. During the day, it is busy with people going about their business, shopping, working, or just being tourists. At night, it transforms. Restaurants appear all over the place, and there is always something going on in the streets. […]
Hulk Smash! Grrrrrr! After the Monday I’ve had, I feel like smashing something. I got a call from Bob’s wife, who was trying to work a jigsaw puzzle of a tiger, and couldn’t seem to get anywhere with it, so I drove 30 miles to see if I could help her. Yup, you guessed it. […]
What better way to start your week than with a nice banquet and a nice jigsaw puzzle. This beautiful painting is by Faith Goble and has a somewhat strange poem to go along with it. Enjoy the puzzle, and I’m off to find some fruit for breakfast.
Sunday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle This strange image is actually a reflection in a puddle. That’s why trees seem to be growing upside down at the bottom of the puzzle. The way it looks almost makes it into an abstract jigsaw puzzle. It certainly gave me something to reflect upon, especially at 234 pieces.
Taking a slightly different approach, Saturday’s jigsaw puzzle is a painting of a young mother and child from Kurdistan. There is not an actual country called Kurdistan, but instead it is a geo-cultural area where the Kurds form the majority of the population. It overlaps into several countries. This portrait is beautifully done and makes […]
Friday’s Jigsaw Puzzle The people in today’s jigsaw puzzle are running towards a goal – to win! In a way we are all running towards our goals. Some just run faster than others. Some run backwards. Me? It’s more like a fast walk, but I’m getting there. My next goal is to get to the […]
Thursday’s Jigsaw Puzzle Ooooo! Shiny! It’s good to reflect on things, unless it’s a mirror that you dropped. I liked the way the building reflected in the water in today’s jigsaw puzzle. It gave it an extra bit of a challenge. (Speaking of things to reflect on, did you notice the 2009 Archives CD’s are […]
You can find aloe in just about anything these days. Aloe hand cream, juice, lotion, paint, soap, alternative medicines and even shampoo. You can even find it in a jigsaw puzzle. (Too much?) I think it makes a dandy house plant. (Just be glad I didn’t rotate the pieces in today’s jigsaw puzzle!) Oh, this […]
I believe the image in today’s jigsaw puzzle is from a pinball machine. It’s a little dark, but that makes it more fun to play. Smile for the camera!
Quick note – I just published two new Mystery Jigsaw puzzles on the blog. The link is over on the right side of the page. Second quick note – the 2009 Archives CD’s are now on sale for 20% off (I have a car payment due soon, so help me out and save some money […]
Sunday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle Something about being out alone at night, in a place like this, strikes me as being both peaceful and spooky at the same time. Imagine you are out for a late night walk because you can’t sleep. You are tired, but need to clear your head before bed. You are alone, […]
Even a dirt path can be considered a golden road, in the right place and circumstances. This one in Saturday’s jigsaw puzzle is located in Romania. I’ve lived on dirt roads before. Well, in a house located in a yard next to a dirt road, that is. Living on a dirt road itself would be […]
Living Statues When I think of living statues, I think of evil statues that come to life and try to eat people’s brains like a cheap zombie movie. Surprisingly, Friday’s jigsaw puzzle isn’t like that at all. No one’s brains get eaten. Today’s puzzle is a surprise puzzle, meaning you don’t get a preview picture. […]
Thursday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle Back around the first of July I gave you a jigsaw puzzle featuring some Mexican souvenirs. Today I have some more. These are a bit more elaborate than the ones in the earlier jigsaw puzzle. (Hey, I had fun when I visited Mexico some years back.) Enjoy!
Wednesday’s Free Daily Jigsaw Puzzle This image of a fruit stall, located in Barcelona, Spain, was taken by a person that goes by the name of Daderot. I don’t know if that is a first name or a last name, but in any case, the image makes for a challenging jigsaw puzzle. As you can […]
Tuesday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle The photograph in today’s jigsaw puzzle is by Torsten Bolten We have a ton of youth soccer leagues around our area. It is becoming a very popular sport. In my youth, it was flag football. In a few years, I’m sure the game of choice will be Pyramid.
I never got to fly in the Concorde, although I know someone who did. In it’s time, it was the fastest commercial airplane around. I would never know what to do with all the buttons and dials and things. They are, within themselves, a bit of a puzzle. I wonder which one ran the coffee […]
Sunday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle It’s time for another fine art jigsaw puzzle, and this one is by Georges Seurat called “Sunday Afternoon on the Island of La Grande-Jatte”. It dates to 1884-1886.
This guy looks like he is selling snake oil. (Hey, they get oil from fish, so why not snakes?) In the old old days, people would often set up on the side of a street to sell things, including potions guaranteed to fix about anything. I wonder if I can get one to fix Mondays?
The German Bundestag is the Parliament of the Federal Republic of Germany. With all the law shows on TV these days, I thought it would make a good subject, as well as one a little different. I liked the circular seating, so of course I had to make the pieces in today’s jigsaw puzzle rotate.
Youth is wasted on the young. OK, everyone who just nodded their heads in agreement, smile! I took my kids to the zoo when they were young, and like the little girl in Thursday’s jigsaw puzzle, they were both fascinated and slightly frightened by the pigeons in the parking lot. I wanted to show them […]
I’ve been trying to eat healthier lately. And yes, I know some of the items in today’s jigsaw puzzles are actually fruits, not vegetables, but it’s all a type of vegetation. Trust me, no flying monkeys were harmed while making this puzzle. Anyway, I’m eating more vegetables now, and while I haven’t cut back on […]
