All dressed up and no place to go. Unless it is to a parade. Horses are always good to use for jigsaw puzzles. Just ask Mr. Ed, of course. (Thank you to those who wrote and said they enjoyed the double puzzles yesterday. Yes, I will do it again sometime.)
Two Jigsaw Puzzles For Monday As a former member of the United States Military, I understand and appreciate the sacrifices so many people have made over the years in the name of freedom. Monday is Memorial Day, and in honor of those who served and died, I offer a jigsaw puzzle from the Vietnam Memorial. […]
Today is a nice day to spend at the beach. I’m sitting in my beach chair, sipping a drink from a coconut, relaxing and enjoying watching the pretty girls walk by, all my cares a thousand miles away. Life is good, and it is always nice to take a break once is a while. I […]
Saturday’s Surprise Jigsaw Puzzle Do you remember breadboxes? I think they were invented a little before sliced bread. My theory is that someone made a loaf of bread too large to fit in a breadbox, so they had to slice off the end to get it to fit. Then they got to eat the leftover […]
Friday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle Yesterday’s jigsaw puzzles were of some horses, and sometimes horses pull carts, unless you put the cart before the horse. Or something like that. Anyway, to be fair to the horses, today’s jigsaw puzzle features a cart you pull (or push) by hand. It’s also dirt old. No, I didn’t buy […]
OK, I had Kansas on the MP3 player again, and of course, “Horse with no name” was playing while looking for a photograph to use in today’s jigsaw puzzle, so… Long story short I was going to do a picture of a pineapple when I put two and two together and got five. I was […]
I’m not sure what building this is, but I liked the photograph enough to turn it into a jigsaw puzzle.
Why do I think I should be hearing Led Zeppelin playing?
Today’s jigsaw puzzle is a little bit different, and not just by the image in it. You’ll see when you play it. It is called a pattern collage. I have no idea what that means, but it does make for a nice jigsaw puzzle. Enjoy!
I called it “Moan-day” because a lot of people moan about Mondays. I did a lot. Today I decided to quit moaning about it, and see it as a opportunity to start the week of on a positive note. I realized I have a wonderful family, a great job, and I’m happy with what I […]
Sunday’s Aerobic Jigsaw Puzzle I’m trying to get back into shape. Yes, round is a shape, but it’s not the one I want. So I’m walking and running up the stairs instead of taking the elevator. I think I’m getting better at it, but it’s hard to keep going when this little kid keeps passing […]
I like the mountains. The air always smells so fresh and clean. Springtime is nice there, too. There is lots to do there as well. About the only thing I don’t like about the mountains is having to walk uphill. Both ways. If you like the free jigsaw puzzles, please buy me a cup of […]
A couple of Thursday afternoons each month, a bunch of old car enthusiasts meet at a large parking lot downtown. I drove through the parking lot on my way home from work about a week after I bought my Smart car. It got a lot of looks. This was in 2008 not too long after […]
Yup, that’s right. Today’s jigsaw puzzle is a mystery puzzle. Your only clue is the word “musicians.” Sorry, no sound with this one. I couldn’t find anything to go with it. Put on your favorite music to listen to while you work the puzzle, and have fun with it.
I finally got my eyes uncrossed after working today’s jigsaw puzzle. Mirror images sometimes do this to me. It is a bit of a challenge, but the subject of the woman after her bath touching her reflection make it fun, too. Now, if I can only remember which side of the mirror I’m supposed to […]
Why does a jigsaw puzzle called “The Harvest” sound like the title of a Stephen King book? I mean, I thought “Children of the Corn” was about a bunch of farmer’s kids growing up. Boy, was I surprised! Still, it is a nice picture, so ignore the scary parts and enjoy the puzzle. If you […]
I used to drive an Impala, years ago. It was a nice car. I always thought that the word “impala” was somehow related to the word “impact” as in what happens when you hit something with your car. I finally figured out it was an animal that looks a lot like a deer. Silly me. […]
I haven’t done an abstract jigsaw puzzle in a while, and my friend Maggie, whom we call “Magpie,” (long story) asked me to do one. Magpie also likes tough jigsaw puzzles, so there is an extra version today, the extreme version. It has the same number of pieces as the tough version, but the pieces […]
Mother Nature got the best of me last night. We had a nice storm and power kept flickering on and off, so I couldn’t make or post today’s jigsaw puzzle. I finally went to bed and slept in, and when I got up, I couldn’t get on line. I have a few downed branches in […]
It’s Friday the 13th. Some people are superstitious about this date. Me? I think it was just an excuse to make some bad movies. In any case, I’m not going inside the narrow tunnel in today’s jigsaw puzzle. Too many earthquakes lately. Enjoy the puzzle, and don’t let any black cats cross your path.
Thursday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle I guess you could call today’s jigsaw puzzle a baby castle. Actually, it is a lookout tower in the Channel Islands, and it dates back to World War two. I prefer to think of it as a starter castle.
I had an uncle who passed away a few years ago. Over fifty years ago he bought a farm of about twenty two acres where he raised his family of eleven kids. We used to go there every year for a family reunion. I also visited him there every once in a while, where he […]
There is a park near the hotel I’m staying at, so I took a walk through it to stretch my legs. The view sort of reminded me of the photograph in today’s jigsaw puzzle, so I picked it out. I’m not saying it is tough, but it took me an hour to work the medium […]
Well, I’m away from home for a few days. Sitting poolside sure beats working. So I wanted you to see what I’m enjoying, so I put a picture of the pool in today’s jigsaw puzzle. Sadly, there’s not a bikini to be seen anywhere. Sigh. At least the hotel has HBO.
Happy Mother’s Day! It is a day to honor mothers and motherhood. Mother’s day actually has ties back to ancient festivals, but it’s modern counterpart started in 1870. It is actually celebrated on different days around the world. Many of the dates were chosen to correspond with existing celebrations honoring mothers and motherhood. You can […]
These they would display proudly so friends would see how beautiful their daughters were, in hopes they would send a suitor their way.
Today’s jig saw puzzle has a mother with her daughter out picking little green apples. It’s a fun thing to do, especially if you can eat the apples, or can cook them into a nice pie. Oh, make sure your speakers are on.
Today’s jigsaw puzzle is of a young mother and her two small children out shopping. Mothers often take their kids when they go out. Sometimes kids are great and well behaved. Sometimes not so much. Which probably explains why she’s buying wine by the case. (I swear I did not notice the bottles until after […]
Carnations are always a nice gift to give, although I’ve always wondered how they managed to evaporate milk from them. I guess that is one of those great mysteries that I’ll never figure out. Today’s jigsaw puzzle is a nice photograph of carnations, if you haven’t already guessed.
I was a little hard pressed to come up with a mother’s day type picture for today’s jigsaw puzzle, (anyone noticing a theme here?) until I found this one that, by a slight – meaning large, stretch of the imagination, shows how moms know that little kids like to play in the dirt, and that […]
For Monday’s jigsaw puzzle, we present another symbol of motherhood, a baby carriage. You know, the think you put your kid in so he can squeal and cry while you are out trying to shop for groceries, or visit friends. Just kidding. Babies squeal and cry no matter where you are. It is all part […]
