Soldiers Tuesday’s jigsaw puzzle, like the soldiers in it, is tough. If it is too tough for you, I apologize. I’m just in one of those moods. I was out shopping yesterday when the woman (I won’t call her a lady) in line in front of me decided she didn’t want something she had picked […]
I felt very welcome each time I visited China. The people are friendly. I saw a welcome center for tourists while I was there, and there was a young Chinese lady at the door to greet us and welcome us inside. Today’s jigsaw puzzle is of such a place.
I’ve heard of men who stare at goats, but have you heard of goats that stare at men? Well, they do. Goats are very curious creatures, and will stop whatever they are eating to see what people are doing, especially if they think they might get something to eat out of it. We saw a […]
It’s Saturday, which means it is time for a party! A jigsaw puzzle party! OK, I have no idea what that is, but it sounds good on paper: A Puzzle Party.
“Did you see Holly?” “Holly who?” “Holly, the plant lady from the beach.” “No, I did not see Holly.” “Would you like some Sea Holly?” “What, did you slice her up or something?” “No, not her, the plant.” OK, this is getting a little weird, even for me. Just enjoy the jigsaw puzzle. And no, […]
Thanksgiving’s Jigsaw Puzzle Today is Thanksgiving day in the USA. It’s a time when we get together with relatives, eat lots and lots of food until we can barely move, watch football on TV, then get up the next morning at 3:00 AM to go shopping. I don’t understand it either, but it’s a tradition. […]
Wednesday’s Jigsaw Puzzle I like things that go around and around. Maybe I just like getting dizzy. So for today’s jigsaw puzzle I chose this picture of a carousel. They go around and around, and up and down. Of course, I like playing with the milkshake machine too.
This hawk has nothing to do with politics or war. It is a bird of prey, looking for something to eat. Perhaps we can feed it some politicians. Either way, I like this bird, and I think the jigsaw puzzle is, like the bird, a little tough but worth the effort.
Today’s jigsaw puzzle is of the crew of escort barges rowing away from the dock at Wat Rachathiwat. They are preparing for the Royal Barge Procession rehearsal. This is in Thailand, one of my favorite countries to visit back when I was in the Navy.
So, what happens when a Mandarin duck flies upside down? He quacks up… OK, the duck doesn’t really speak Mandarin Chinese, that’s just it’s name. I did learn some interesting facts about Mandarin ducks. For starters, they perch in trees. I always thought they couldn’t do that because of their webbed feet. The daddy duck […]
The only problem with a jigsaw puzzle of a cute kitty is that it will never be as cute as the kitty is. The nice thing about this cute kitty is I don’t have to clean up after it. I forget what kind of kitty this breed is called, but I do know they have […]
My wife collects fabric. Lots and lots of fabric. She actually makes things out of them sometimes. It occurred to me that a jigsaw puzzle from a fabric pattern would be a little challenging. I had a challenge taking a decent picture, but fortunately someone posted this image for me to use. The mirror image […]
I think I may have mentioned my sister, Suzy. You will never guess what her job is. Nope, she does not sell seashells down by the sea shore. She and her husband, Charles Woods, work for a logging company chucking wood. You figure out the rest. Me? I’m gonna go enjoy a nice, somewhat difficult […]
By John Singer Sargent I’m sort of a fan of the prolific John Singer Sargent. For starters, he did more paintings that just about anyone else I know of. You may remember some of his other paintings in earlier jigsaw puzzles. I chose this one because of the paper lanterns the two girls are holding. […]
Powerful Feet – A Mystery Jigsaw Puzzle OK, I can give you a hint. Today’s jigsaw puzzle is, of course, a surprise (or mystery) jigsaw puzzle. It involves my wife’s feet and part of the zoo I live in. That is the only clue I will give you, but I do think you will like […]
Today’s jigsaw puzzle is of the underside of some daisies. I guess you have to think about the perspective of this one. Pushing daisies? (That was a great TV show!) A bug’s life? (I’ve listened to my daughter play that one about a hundred times. Arrggghhhh!!!) Please don’t eat the daisies. Bugs live there.
Piers can be fun places to go. You get to walk out over water without getting wet. Some have lots of things to see and do, so much you can easily forget about the water. Fisherman’s Wharf in San Francisco is one such place. Today’s jigsaw puzzle is that of a pier. Can you see […]
From high on a hill, this photograph reminded me of when I watched the sunrise from a place called “High Top.” I thought it would make a heck of a jigsaw puzzle, so here it is. Now, if you will excuse me, I think it’s time to go to bed so I can get up […]
I’m a little puzzled about why they would cover a bridge when the rest of the road wasn’t covered. I mean, if the storm is so bad you have to take refuge in a covered bridge, wouldn’t you worry about it being washed into the river with you inside it? Maybe it is covered so […]
Thursday’s Jigsaw Puzzle On a slightly misty morning, the traveler found herself outside a cottage near the tracks. The only way there was by a rugged footpath, or by train. Still, she had to stop here. With any luck, the long, hard trip would pay off handsomely. Working her way up the path, she cautiously […]
Eberbach Abbey Located in Germany, Eberbach Abbey, or “Kloster Eberbach” in German, was founded in 1136. Parts of the movie “The Name of the Rose” was filmed here. The photograph in today’s jig saw puzzle is of a pipe organ and a stained glass window. This puzzle is a little deceptive, in that it seems […]
Tuesday’s Jigsaw Puzzle I learned today that Volkshochschule means “adult education center.” That’s where the picture in today’s jigsaw puzzle is from. I like to do an occasional puzzle of stairs. They go up, and they go down. Sometimes they go around and around, but they always take you somewhere. Unlike my treadmill, which takes […]
I found the photograph in today’s jigsaw puzzle to be one of those that really catch your attention. I can almost feel the fear this girl is experiencing. The bleak looking background and building heighten the emotion of this puzzle. It seemed to be a good way to start a Monday…
Sunday’s Mystery Jigsaw Puzzle It’s time for a Mystery jigsaw puzzle, so since one big mystery is how to get wealthy, today’s jigsaw puzzle is of the Fountain of Wealth, located in Suntec City, Singapore. Or not. It could be a water fountain with a handle you have to push located at a ball field […]
Saturday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle Located in Spain, Albarracín is a small town with only about 1,000 people living in it. I thought this jigsaw puzzle would be a strange change from yesterday’s country road. My little Smart Car would have a tough time going down these narrow roads. My neighbor’s Hummer couldn’t even enter the […]
I was listening to my old radio station earlier (the link is near the bottom of the page) when a John Denver tune came on. Then I remembered this photograph that Mary sent me, (Thanks Mary!) and picked it out for today’s jigsaw puzzle. I like it out in the country, sometimes. I hope to […]
Kat (yes, that’s her name) is a friend that can’t stand cats. Go figure. Her dog, on the other hand, loves cats. At least I think he does. He’s always chasing them. But he is rather dumb, too, so I don’t think he would know what to do with one if he ever caught it. […]
The Monastery of Santa Maria de Poblet is located in Catalonia, Spain, and was founded by Cistercian monks from France. It is a beautiful, historical place to visit. Today’s jigsaw puzzle is of the interior of one of it’s halls.
