Puzzles, Games, and Fun Facts
« on: August 21, 2013, 05:20:36 PM »

This thread will be for puzzles, games, and fun facts.  I will start it off with a jigsaw puzzle.  This is a screen cap I got on 1/10/2012 of a Decorah Eagle parent's talons.  An eagle's toes are numbered as follows:  The back, rear-facing toe (the hallux) is #1;  the innermost forward facing toe is #2;  the next toe (the middle one of the forward toes) is #3;  and the outermost front-facing toe is #4.

Thank you jfrancl!  That's a great crossword puzzle!

Glog, you can click on the time clock on the left if you have an interruption.  That will stop the clock until you return. :)

The picture I used for the next puzzle is of Dad Decorah on 3/7/2012.  It show his nictitating membrane (the transparent 3rd eyelid) beginning to sweep across his eye. The purpose of the membrane is to clean and protect the eye.  I hope you can see it - it shows up much better in the full size picture.  The reduced size of a photo used in Jigzone makes the details kind of hard to see.

ok...I'm beginning to decide that my purpose here is to make you all feel good. :D  Now, do I have to tell you my time on this one?  I mean, look...I started doing it about 3:00 am.  That was after waking up after falling asleep with my computer on my lap, half-sitting up, so I thought, "I'll do this puzzle real quick." ;D  Ok...wince....44:04.  When I passed Pagent's time, with only about 10-15 pieces put together, I took my time but decided I WOULD finish it.  Aren't I supposed to get better at doing these?  Course it's just my 2nd one.  I'm used to normal looking puzzles and it's been awhile. (Glog is reaching for excuses).  ;D

Lol Glog, don't give up!  It takes some time to get used to the odd shaped pieces.  The next time I post a jigsaw puzzle, I will use normal pieces so you can work up to it gradually.  Or fyi, you can change the puzzle cut if you want to when you're on the jigzone page.  :D

Faith - no Mercy playing.  Just dish them out.  :P ;D

Abbie, Pagent - thanks for the encouragement.  :)  Perhaps I'll do better if it's not 3:00 am.  :D
