For some reason as soon as I saw the photograph in today’s jigsaw puzzle I immediately thought back to the first earthquake I felt while living in Japan. The funny thing is, I’ve been there, and I don’t remember the domes. Well, that was a few years back. Being on it’s side does make the […]
When I first saw the picture in today’s jigsaw puzzle, I thought it was some kind of coral until after I had turned it into jigsaw puzzles. While I was playing it, it occurred to me that it wasn’t coral but some kind of fungus instead! At least I think it is. I could be […]
Koala bears are interesting creatures. They look very cute, but those claws are sharp! Still, I like the cookies shaped like Koala bears, as do my kids. Today’s jigsaw puzzle is for Ann. Happy 90th birthday Ann! Enjoy!
Wednesday’s Free Daily Jigsaw Puzzle Just for something different, Jackie suggested some glazed floral Turkish tiles as the subject matter for a jigsaw puzzle. I found one tile. It was pretty nice, so I turned it into the puzzle for you. (Note: My hosting provider has been having issues which randomly causes the pages to […]
Tuesday’s Healthy Daily Jigsaw Puzzle A few days ago I mentioned my salad bowl kit I bought on the Internet. It had storage for all the add-on’s as well as the salad. Well, today I took my first salad to work in it today, and it was pretty good. To celebrate (yeah, I know, boring […]
Face painting has gone back thousands of years, but many today use it for fun or special occasions. Parties, festivals, and other forms of celebration come to mind. Anyway, this is another of my “people” jigsaw puzzles. Enjoy!
Right now, where I live, pink flowers like these are a bit out of season although you can still get them at flower shops. Of course in a few weeks they will really be back in season for at least a couple of days, but for now these will do. They also make great jigsaw […]
About a week or so ago, I ran a jigsaw puzzle of an old ship. As there are lots of other former sailors out there, it proved to be a popular subject, so I found another view of an old ship to use. I don’t think it is really a pirate ship, but it sounded […]
The kids in today’s jigsaw puzzle look like they are trying to figure something out, and I’m guessing it’s something educational. That is, to me, one of the best ways to learn. Anyway, Iris asked for a jigsaw puzzle with some people in it, and so I picked this one out. Enjoy!
Have you used sea shells to provide a bit of extra decoration anywhere? I did that one time with a small Zen garden on my desk, until it walked off. Seriously! I found a small shell right outside our house near the beach in Japan, picked it up and placed it in the Zen garden. […]
This was a hard puzzle to create. No, it’s not overly tough, it’s just I had a hard time choosing a background color that didn’t blend in with something. As is. a few of the pieces will be similar, but I think I have enough of a difference that it won’t be a problem. Anyway, […]
Libraries are generally quiet places, unless there is a special event going on that involves a ton of screaming kids. The library was my refuge from the world when I was young. I would spend hours just looking things up and seeing where it would take me. These days with the Internet you can find […]
Last month I did a jigsaw puzzle looking down on some spiral stairs. That was a fairly popular jigsaw puzzle and I received some good comments on it. Today I bring back the same stairs, but this time looking up from the bottom. Once in a while I have to turn things upside down for […]
You can’t own a cat. The most you can do is provide it with free room and board. If you are lucky, they will even let you pet them, but only on their own terms and only for as long as they think it is keeping you from doing something important. For example, the cat […]
It’s nice to go on a picnic once in a while, but dang it, not when it’s freezing cold outside! Anyway, it didn’t take much effort to talk everyone out of it, so we moved the table and chairs out of the way and spread a blanket on the floor, and had our picnic there. […]
Every once in a while I go out of town and end up spending the night in some strange hotel room. Now, some hotels are nice, but it’s always different than what I’m used to. Then there’s Bob. He usually manages to spend a couple nights every so often at the Graybar hotel. And by […]
I like ships. I guess it explains why I spent ten years on sea duty back during my Navy days. Of course I would have liked the chance to go on one like in today’s jigsaw puzzle. Enjoy!
Wednesday’s Free Daily Jigsaw Puzzle For the longest time I thought the word “collage” was a misspelling. Then one day Bob of all people explained it to me. He said a “collage” was a high price college that wasn’t quite as good as a university. He said it was half way between community college and […]
Did you know the closest you can come to rhyming with the word orange is door hinge? I know that’s true because I heard it on TV once, a long time ago. Anyway, I picked some nice orange flowers for today’s jigsaw puzzle and Bob’s wife next door chased me out of her greenhouse. I […]
Outdoor cafés can be fun, but in some countries you have to watch out for the bill. When I was in Greece (I think it was Greece, but I could be mistaken) we ordered our meal but, being Americans, they automatically super-sized our drinks without telling us first, and I was a bit shocked when […]
Today’s jigsaw puzzles feature a small group of zebras. Or is it zebri? I never know what the plural form of different kinds of animals are. Anyway, the picture reminds me of one of the earliest riddles I learned as a kid: Q: What is black and white and red all over? A: A zebra […]
Towns with old streets like the one in today’s jigsaw puzzle are a good excuse to walk around and explore. They are wide enough for pedestrians and maybe a push cart, or even a moped, but for the most part you walk. This has the advantage of enabling you to spend time talking to people […]
Remember the video game Qbert? You had this little character named Qbert that jumped from one cube to another, causing the cubes to change color. The idea was to get them all the target color to be able to advance to the next level while trying not to fall off the cubes. Sometimes the simplest […]
As cold as it is outside right now, I wanted to do a jigsaw puzzle that reminded me more of summertime. This one has lots and lots of little flowers in it. It’s also a bit tough on the harder levels. Enjoy, and don’t forget to share it, especially on Facebook!!
The fish in today’s jigsaw puzzle has only one eye showing, but I’m guessing the real fish has two of them. As I said yesterday, this weeks’ puzzles contain some that are a little bit different. Except for the one I once did of one of those plastic singing fish, I think today’s may be […]
How many of you remember who Rooster Cogburn was? One of my favorite quotes from him was “You can’t lock up a man’s whiskey!” The two Rooster Cogburn movies were favorites of mine from long, long ago. (OK, I’m showing my age here.) Speaking of roosters, today’s jigsaw features one. Enjoy!
This week I have a few jigsaw puzzles that are going to be a bit different thrown into the mix just to be, well, different! This first one is of some faces in a unique style. Enjoy and please share!
Somehow I completely forgot about the big bag of grapes I had in the refrigerator. I got lucky in that they were still good. I’ve been going to the gym every other day for a couple of weeks now, and I’m trying to adopt a healthier lifestyle. The really good news is that chocolate is […]
