From Wikipedia: Jade is is an ornamental stone. The term jade is applied to two different metamorphic rocks that are made up of different silicate minerals. We collected a lot of jade while living overseas. We have several jade Buddhas, as well as other things including rings, a jade dragon and a jade elephant with […]
Happy Saturday! For today’s daily jigsaw puzzle, I found a bright red freight train. I’m not sure what it is hauling, but I’m sure it has some assembly required, batteries not included. If you like the free jigsaw puzzles, please buy me a cup of coffee. Thank you!
Gwen challenged me to do something… different, for today’s jigsaw puzzle. Is a watercolor (I think it’s watercolor) painting of a happy dog driving a car different enough? Perhaps another day I can do a cat flying an airplane. If you like the free jigsaw puzzles, please buy me a cup of coffee. Thank you!
Is soap on a rope still around? I guess it’s better to use that to take a bath with than a monkey on a rope. OK, I’m tired. Got to throw another candle on the cake, and hope the fire department doesn’t crash the party like they did last year. I really shouldn’t spend so […]
A housing development like the one in today’s jigsaw puzzle could be called a “complex.” It sure looks complex to me. Wouldn’t you get confused as to which one was yours? What about those neighbors that complain all the time about the noise? Do I have to shut down my Metallica just because of them? […]
Usually in a hard jigsaw puzzle all the pieces have the same shape. Today’s jigsaw puzzle is a little hard because of all the green cabbage. It’s not impossible, just difficult. Just be sure to get the jigsaw puzzle done before the cabbage wilts. If you like the free jigsaw puzzles, please buy me a […]
Bird Seed – Monday’s Daily Jigsaw Puzzle (Sorry this is late. I stupidly scheduled it to publish on Tuesday instead of Monday.) It never seems to matter how much bird seed I plant, I never grow any birds. Worse, I think the birds that are already out there don’t want any more birds because they […]
The photograph in today’s jigsaw puzzle was sent in by Doug. Thanks, Doug! I’ve seen a lot of houses like this one. Old, paint peeling, broken out windows, lonely and abandoned. I’m sure the people that grew up in them have good memories of them. It’s a shame to see them in this condition, but […]
Saturday is looking up to be a perfect day. Sunshine, slight breeze, and yes, a little too hot, but I have a good book, a couple of old movies, and my computer with some jigsaw puzzles to keep me busy. All I need now is some chocolate. I’ll give the flowers to the rabbit. She […]
Friday’s Free Daily Jigsaw Puzzle It’s all about Art. Art who? NO, not who, what! What? Art. Art who? Gesundheit. If you like the free jigsaw puzzles, please buy me a cup of coffee. Thank you!
From Wikipedia: Burano is an island in the Venetian Lagoon, northern Italy; like Venice itself, it could more correctly be called an archipelago of four islands linked by bridges. Today’s jigsaw puzzle shows a side of Venice you don’t see in the movies. Yes, there are paved streets there too. It’s not all canals, and […]
Step right up and test your skill. Can you find the monkey with the purple belly? How about a stuffed green frog? You, there. Yes, you, sitting in front of the monitor. Come here a second. “Do you have what it takes to work a puzzle like this? Come on, take a chance, and you […]
Well, I guess it’s better than snakes on a plane, but ropes on a boat can sure puzzle you as to what they do. Of course, things have changed a bit since I was last on a boat. For starters, you don’t necessarily have to have sails to go anywhere, plus you have all those […]
Eva wrote to ask that I do a really tough puzzle, something with a lot of one color in it. Since she didn’t specify what color, I picked green. Green leaves, that is. Yes, it’s a bit tough, but not impossible. I expect to be done with the easy version sometime later this week… If […]
OK, there isn’t anything really scary in today’s jigsaw puzzle. It is one of many ghost towns across America. Some even have real ghosts in them. Ghosts which may follow you home. We have one in our house. She likes to turn on the TV at night while we are sleeping. She showed up after […]
To get anywhere you need connections. Connections can make things easier for you, and can help you do things you would otherwise not be able to do. Today’s jigsaw puzzle is a surprise, or mystery jigsaw puzzle. You don’t get to see a picture before you complete the puzzle. You just have to make the […]
Relaxing Couple It’s Friday, the start of the weekend. The couple in today’s jigsaw puzzle is doing what I want to do – go somewhere nice and relax outside for a while. Yesterday was hot, today was much nicer. I hope you got outside and enjoyed the sun a bit today.
My wife makes some of the best spaghetti. I know, because I’ve been to Italy and loved the food there. It’s like going home to the motherland. I’m a big eater. My wife made the sauce from last night’s spaghetti using tomatoes she grew herself. It was good! Enjoy the meal and the puzzle.
We have a kitten that sometimes likes to pretend it’s a ferocious big cat. It’s cute. Until those needle-like claws dig into your ankles from behind when you aren’t expecting it. Then cute kitty isn’t so cute any more. Ten minutes later, she’ll want to crawl up in your lap and take a nap. Then […]
Sometimes you have to stop and smell the roses. I don’t think the woman in today’s jigsaw puzzle had any roses to smell, but she found something just as nice. I wanted something casual to use for today’s jigsaw puzzle, and I think this one fits the bill. So relax, enjoy the puzzle, then go […]
Monday’s Daily Jig Saw Puzzle Have you ever seen a hot rod dash? It usually happens when they need to get somewhere fast. Of course, that’s what they are designed to do. What? It’s not that kind of dash? Well, what kind is it? Oh. A dashboard. Well, don’t I feel stupid now.
OK, the tough version of this jigsaw puzzle isn’t exactly a walk in the park. That’s why it’s called the tough version. I like to go for walks in the park, especially after a rain. I know the muggers are all inside having a beer so it’s fairly safe here in my neighborhood. You just […]
It’s back-breaking work, sawing logs. Unless you are asleep, that is. Then it’s just noisy. These logs are destined to become firewood, but they have to be split, first. And I thought the sawing part was hard. Time to sharpen my ax.
I’m not sure exactly what a “Theatrically lit building” is, but my guess is that it is supposed to look like a set of a theater. In any case, this building looked interesting so I built it into a jigsaw puzzle – one brick at a time.
I ran a jigsaw puzzle of a white tiger last year. Eva asked me to do another one so I found this photograph of a white tiger for the puzzle. That’s a big putty tat! White tigers are fairly rare. Below the puzzle is a video about white tigers that explains a lot about them. […]
Old Building In France Today’s jigsaw puzzle is a bit of a tough one. First off, it is in French. Just kidding. The building in the puzzle is in France. You don’t need to speak French to work it. It is a bit of a tough one as the building is several stories high, with […]
It may not be a big, huge fishing boat, but the one in today’s jigsaw puzzle is just the right size to catch supper in, and to relax when you don’t really fee like catching anything. There are some days you just want to be lazy and not do anything except read a good book, […]
It’s the 4th of July, and it’s a holiday here in the USA. A friend at work, one of my lesser traveled buddies, asked me if they have a 4th of July in Japan. Um, yeah. They just don’t shoot off firecrackers there on the 4th. I chose a cannon for today’s jigsaw puzzle. I […]
For Sunday’s jigsaw puzzle I chose a photograph of some salt shakers in a window sill, with the sunlight coming through the curtains. It’s not really an abstract picture, but I liked it and thought you would too. Sometimes simple pictures can be the best. If you like the free jigsaw puzzles, please buy me […]
