Today’s jig saw puzzle is of a Balustrade, which is a fancy way of saying a bunch of posts that support a railing. It is also called a ‘stair stick’ and is, as you have probably guessed, a French based word. They usually have a curved shape, with the bottom being larger than the top. […]
Now for something different in our jigsaw puzzles – a portrait. From Wikipedia: In Hinduism, sadhu, or shadhu is a common term for a mystic, an ascetic, practitioner of yoga, and / or wandering monks. I saw two when I was in India. There are supposed to be four to five million in India. This […]
I was looking in my collection of photographs when I saw the one in today’s puzzle, and figured, “why not?” That’s the whole reason today’s jigsaw puzzle is a flower. It’s just that simple.
Some of you may remember a penguin named Opus, from the comic strips ‘Bloom County’ and ‘Outland.’ He was one of my favorite characters. I was reading some old strips when I decided to use penguins for today’s jigsaw puzzle. These are called ‘Humboldt Penguins.’
I wonder what this cat is watching? Is it a mouse? A bird? A plane? No, it’s watching…. Super Rat! Faster than a speeding kitty cat! More powerful than a rat trap! Able to leap tall cheese in a single bound! OK, I’m starting to lose it. Got to go feed the zoo so I […]
(Sorry this is late. I just discovered I forgot to push the “Publish” button.) We had some bowls similar to these in today’s jigsaw puzzle. Over the years they kind of got broken. The good news is that you can put these bowls back together, puzzle piece by piece. But you should be prepared for […]
Dandelions and Soccer Ball Unless you have a good bit of time to play. This is one of those puzzles you look at and say “What was he thinking???” Well, it’s not as tough as it looks. I completed it in under half an hour. OK, it was the easy version. But I feel good […]
I used to play chess years ago, and taught my children at an early age, although I don’t think they still play. They seemed to think the object was to capture as many of the other person’s pieces as possible. Guess they preferred checkers. Anywho, this is sort of an abstract 3D rendering of a […]
I looked for some fruit today, but the basket was empty. That was a puzzle to me. Why would it be called a fruit basket if there wasn’t any fruit in it? Wouldn’t be called an air basket or an empty basket? What if you put vegetables in it instead, would it be a vegetable […]
This week has been a real dog, so I thought, why not finish up with a dog? Pepi the Pug is an ugly / cute little dog (so ugly he’s cute?) that was more than happy to let us use his picture for our jigsaw puzzle today. I think Pepi had a rough week, too. […]
So my friend Fern says she wants to see a tough jigsaw puzzle, so I told her I would make one just for her. It’s a fern. And it’s tough. Just like Fern. She’s a bouncer at the local biker’s bar. Hopefully she won’t bounce me for my little joke. If you have any problems […]
I will admit, the photograph in today’s jig saw puzzle makes it a little bit tougher than normal. So I kicked it up another notch. The extreme version below has the same number of pieces as the tough version, but the pieces rotate! If you like Herons, then this one you will like. Tasty!
Wednesday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle The world may not be all black and white, but today’s jigsaw puzzle is. “De Passage” (pronounced as in French) was the Netherlands’ first covered shopping mall. Dating from the late 19th century, it contains many expensive and specialty shops. – From the photographer, Bert Kaufmann. To me, the place just […]
Tuesday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle It’s cold! And I have a cold. Right now, I’m missing spring and my allergies. At least then I know I’m sneezing for a reason, and no one is going to catch my allergies. Today’s jigsaw puzzle features a little slice of spring. Believe me, I’m waiting as fast as I […]
Today’s daily jigsaw puzzle is of a nice Japanese park. I thought something green would be nice for a blue Monday. I’m also a bit of a fan of the stone lanterns. There was a Japanese park on base when I was stationed in Japan. I would occasionally go there and enjoy lunch.
Sunday’s Jigsaw Puzzle Once again I bring you a jigsaw puzzle of a painting by William-Adolphe Bouguereau. This one is one of my favorites. Two young girls, most likely sisters, outside with one playing a simple flute.
The D’Amboise Gate is the most impressive gate of Rhodes as seen from a military viewpoint. It is one of three majestic gates that served most of the needs of the people. The historical importance of gates like these is often overlooked by tourists, but when you consider the design was both artistic and to […]
Ivy Leaves. Sounds like a phrase out of a bad movie script. As Batman stands there wondering where his Bat-mobile keys are, Ivy leaves. Or how about Ivy Leaves – Private Detective. I could come up with some more, but you are probably itching to get to the puzzles, so scratch any more jokes.
Thursday’s jigsaw puzzle is called “Take My Hand.” With all that’s going on out in Arizona, I thought it might offer a small amount of comfort.
Wednesday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle From Wikipedia: The Odeon of Herodes Atticus is a stone theater structure located on the south slope of the Acropolis of Athens. That’s located in Greece, and was built back in 161 AD. It’s old. It’s still in use today, and has been restored. It can seat 5,000 people. Just don’t […]
Well, here in the south, everything outdoors has turned white from the snow and ice. Looking for something different to eat (Mac and Cheese was getting old,) I came across a container of frozen strawberries. Sadly, my wife was saving them for a special desert at some unknown date in the future. Sigh…. I guess […]
This little kitten looks like she’s not sure if she wants to be picked up or not. I’m not sure where exactly she is, but it’s still a cute picture. Cats are cute when they are that age, but then they grow up to be teenagers of the cat world. Nothing but trouble.
It’s a jigsaw puzzle of a lantern hanging in a tree. That’s all there is to it. No stories of how I once saw one just like it in a foreign country, no quips about bug lights, not even anything about it being a magic lantern. It’s just a lantern hanging in a tree. Or […]
It’s roads like the one in today’s jigsaw puzzle that make me glad I drive a small car. Some older parts of town have narrow roads, since they were built mostly for foot traffic, horses, or the occasional buggy. Do the tough version of this puzzle, and it might drive you buggy, too!
Friday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle In my efforts to get a tad bit better in shape, I’ve started eating more fruits and veggies. That made the photograph in today’s jigsaw puzzle appeal to me, as well as made me hungry. Bananas are good, especially if you cut them down the middle, throw on a couple of […]
I tell you, it’s just not safe anymore. The street punks are getting younger and younger. Take these hoodlums. They’d just as soon outline you as look at you. Even the caliber of chalk is getting bigger. When I was a kid, all we had was regular school chalk. These things are huge! Well, they […]
It’s a horse, Bob. I can see it’s a horse. What I want to know is why is it in my parking spot? Bob asked. Well, I replied, It’s there because I forgot my keys. Not taking his eyes off the horse, Bob reached out and put a hand on my shoulder. You forgot your […]
Tuesday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle I was staring at the ceiling looking for inspiration, when it occurred to me that the designs in the plaster looked like flowers. One quick snapshot later and I had a picture that looked like a beige ceiling. “Well, that won’t go over very well,” I thought. So I found a […]
(OK, I accidentally labeled Sunday’s jigsaw puzzle as Monday’s. I fixed it after 37 people told me. Thanks for letting me know. Three day weekends sometimes mess up my calender.) Today I have a song in my heart, and music in my soul. You see, I told my daughter that I was going to win […]
This particular golf hole in Sunday’s jigsaw puzzle looks darn near impossible. I imagine you could fish a few thousand golf balls out of the lake around this thing. I haven’t played golf in many years, and looking at the green on this hole, I remember why. I though about making the puzzle harder than […]
