Is this a jigsaw puzzle, ZB, or some other kind? If you want hard jigsaw puzzles, I can give you my "Red Riding Hood's Hood"... round, and solid red... not even any shadings.

Twisted Evil


Many years ago my sister gave me a solid red puzzle. I think it was a 1000 pc. rectangular, once I 'got' the pattern it went quickly.
A couple of years ago I spent the month of December doing a 2000pc. puzzle depicting van Gogh's Starry Night. Talk about seeing stars. Confused

I have a mystery puzzle, no picture of what it is. Even the edges were hard.

Well I have school but my kids don't. Temps finally getting in the positive and the water isn't working in the building. I suppose some pipe froze.

Done those also.
My sister and her daughter were always looking for the most challenging puzzles to see who could do them the quickest. Once they were done they would take them to 'Uncle Jim' to see if he could do them faster.
Usually he could. Very Happy

We have a bunch of larger puzzles....1000 piece, 1500 piece....that I suppose we could bring out now. They've been sitting on a shelf, because we had all these people living here. I still forget we have those parts of the house back to ourselves now.

My grandma would always cover the picture on the box when she gave us a new puzzle. To this day her grandchildren will not look at the picture when doing the puzzle (... for the most part).


As for jigsaw puzzles... Here's the link to one you can do online. 108 pieces, a photo of Lost Falls in northern Wisconsin that I took when we visited there this past September.

If the puzzle shows up as finished instead of in pieces, check "restart" from the little gear menu at the bottom left to play again.

Okay, this is just sad.....there's an informal challenge taking place among Wisconsin birders, called a "local patch" challenge. You set up a map centered on your home, set the radius for 7.5 miles out, and then keep track of the birds in your "patch." My patch is the armpit of Wisconsin. I just miss....the entire Mississippi River, Goose Island, Hixon Forest, the river wetlands, the LaCrosse blufflands....basically everywhere I find good birds. I have one good spot in the whole mess! The idea is to encourage "greener" birding, and I suppose I'll start looking for some new spots with hidden birds. Mostly silos and fields with manure spread on them.

Sigh.

AHHH! Puzzles. Did many jigsaw puzzles a number of years ago while spending countless hours in the hospital's family waiting room. My nephew was in a coma for 6 weeks and we only got 5-10 minutes of family time per hour. The balance was spent "waiting". The puzzles definatley helped maintain some sanity and break up the boredom.
