Eva wanted me to do a self portrait for a jigsaw puzzle. I wanted to look more handsome for the portrait than I already am, so I decided to run the picture through the touch-up sequence in Photoshop. Then I remembered I should have made allowances for my beard. Over all, I think it’s a […]
It’s been a few years since I went hiking in the mountains. Perhaps next summer I will go again. This tiny little hut seemed so desolate, I picked it out for today’s puzzle. Writing something to go along with it is tough. At least the hiking trail looks easy to navigate. If you like the […]
My daughter was watching 101 Dalmatians today, so when I found this photograph I decided it would be perfect for a jigsaw puzzle. Spot, (I assume that’s his name) is sitting in the flower bed trying to not look guilty. I wonder if he dug up some of the flowers. Now, if I could only […]
Pumpkins are starting to appear everywhere. My wife brought home a couple from the grocery store. A lady at work brought in two pumpkin pies. Since it is now time for the fall harvest, I thought I would celebrate by making today’s jigsaw puzzle a picture of different varieties of pumpkins. Yum! Oh, yeah, the […]
Wy (short for “Wyoming” – her real name) said she enjoys fishing, and asked for a jigsaw puzzle featuring fish. Meanwhile, Edward asked for a tough puzzle to exercise his brain some as the mindlessness of prime time TV was starting to make his head go numb. Today’s jigsaw puzzle sort of combines both. It […]
A number years ago I bought an actual jigsaw puzzle made of chocolate. It had a picture of a Japanese style garden, complete with a small bridge, etched into the chocolate. Of course I bought it while living in Japan. It was expensive, but we got to eat it after we put it together. Chocolate […]
Huanglong Valley is located in Sichuan, China. It is a historical and scenic area and is well known for its colorful pools of water. It also has hot springs, waterfalls, and more. The Giant Panda is from this area, too. It is also on my list of places to visit. I hope to get there […]
Friday’s Wake Me Up Jigsaw Puzzle A lot of people prefer their coffee fresh. Some like instant. I prefer mine in the form of hot chocolate. How about a cup to start your day? If you like the free jigsaw puzzles, please buy me a cup of coffee. Thank you!
Almost everyone likes candy once in a while. Some more than most. One of my co-workers brought in a bag of candy corn. I ate some, then read the list of ingredients. It was made up of sugar and lard. That doesn’t explain why I had some more, along with everyone else. What can I […]
Today’s jigsaw puzzle is a surprise puzzle. You don’t get a preview of it, and you don’t get to see the picture until you finish it. The only hint is that it shows something found in America. Of course, this can be found in other countries as well. You just have to be in the […]
OK, this may not be the original Nemo, but at least it is the right species of fish this time. The clown fish in today’s jigsaw puzzle really aren’t that big, but it is a good thing or else it would scare people. Think about how many people are scared of clowns. Imagine if they […]
There are still a few days of nice weather left before fall sets in. The young lady in today’s jigsaw puzzle is relaxing out in the park while she works on her schoolwork. This is a nice picture, but what it doesn’t show is the Frisbee that hit her in the head about ten seconds […]
Since yesterday’s jigsaw puzzle was of something old, I thought for today I would have something new. A new home. No, not mine. I plan on living here for a while longer. This new house is the same color as mine, though.
I kind of like old machines. Especially ones that were made before me. Of course that kind of limits it to things like rocks, the lever and a stick, but still… I’m not entirely sure, but I believe the main one in this picture is used to fold or bend something. Probably rocks… If you […]
My friends Brenda and Thomas went to Hawaii for vacation a couple of years ago, and they shared some pictures they took with me. Today’s jigsaw puzzle is one of them. It is of a small hut in a park. The little yellow sign says “Warning. Flash flooding could occur at any time.” They do […]
It looks like Fred and Wilma had another little girl. This cutie has a bone for a toy, and seems to be having a lot of fun playing. I wonder if that wooden fence is actually her playpen? “Wilma! I’m home!!!” If you like the free jigsaw puzzles, please buy me a cup of coffee. […]
I like playing board games of chance. You know, where you have to roll a pair of dice to make a move. Backgammon is one of my favorites. Sometimes things work out, sometimes they don’t. In this case, I took a chance with a jigsaw puzzle that I was afraid would turn out to be […]
I wonder if it was just an extreme case of the tide being out, or if the lake was accidentally drained? These boats don’t look like they are going anywhere any time soon. Sink or swim, boys, sink or swim. If you like the free jigsaw puzzles, please buy me a cup of coffee. Thank […]
Lisa asked for a puzzle with some rocks, while Ed wanted something with wheels. This one has both. Sort of. It’s a water wheel with rocks! Or it’s a jigsaw puzzle that rocks.
I had some great vegetables yesterday, mostly on my double-decker hamburger I had at the company picnic. Seriously, I’m eating more fresh vegetables now. My wife keeps buying pizzas with all these green things on them. Whatever works, I guess. If you like the free jigsaw puzzles, please buy me a cup of coffee. Thank […]
Carrie asked for a jigsaw puzzle of a flower. We just so happen to have some petunia’s out in the yard. Of course, we also have some rocks, but no one asked for those… If you like the free jigsaw puzzles, please buy me a cup of coffee. Thank you!
Inline skating is like ice skating, but without the ice. You can still fall down easily. I prefer the old roller skates, the kind where you have four wheels spread out to give you a little better balance. I tried ice skating once. I made it all the way around the ice rink. Holding on […]
Today’s jigsaw puzzle is another in my series of repeating pattern puzzles, and is of an escalator leading down to a pedestrian bridge. I rode an escalator in Hong Kong years ago that went from the train station to the upper level of a shopping mall. It was at least five hundred feet tall, and […]
A long, long time ago, in a country far, far away, the Empire declared… Whoops. Sorry, lost my train of thought. OK, years ago when I was overseas I traveled to Rome and stayed in a hotel that had balconies like these, except they all had the same furniture on them. It was, after all, […]
The weather was great this weekend. Not too hot, not too humid. Just right. I went for a hike up the nature trail, and sure enough, there were still some flowers in bloom. Bees too. They didn’t like me smelling their flowers. At least I got some aerobic exercise. If you like the free jigsaw […]
There are a lot of people in this world that drink tea. I am not one of them. Nope. I don’t have the tea gene. My wife and kids all drink it, but I don’t. I can’t stand it. Swamp water. Still, it has been around for thousands of years. To me it tastes like […]
Time to mow the hay, I guess. Well, I really can’t guess. I don’t know when hay is supposed to be mowed. My great uncle had an apple farm that I spent a little bit of time at, but horses didn’t do much plowing or mowing there. Today’s jigsaw puzzle is brought to you by […]
It’s not fall yet, but I was reminded that it is coming when I was walking along a foot bridge through the woods and there were yellow and brown leaves on it. I’ve had the photograph in today’s jigsaw puzzle for a while, and the leaves helped me to decide it was finally time to […]
Soccer is a very popular sport in the world. It involves a group of people kicking a ball from one end of the field to the other without using their hands, except to occasionally punch someone on the other team. I’ve watched a few soccer games, but never really got into it that much. I […]
