Minneapolis Miracle - 1/17/18

Today's puzzle takes us to Minneapolis, Minnesota.  If you're not into sports, you probably don't understand how much we fans are affected by the ups and downs that our beloved teams experience.  Players get traded, coaches get fired, but year after year we fans suit up in our team colors and cheer our hearts out.  There we were on Sunday, all decked out (including the dog) and almost unable to watch as it looked like the season was coming to an abrupt end after a promising start to the game.  We had muted the TV so we didn't have to listen to the announcers recounting all the other heartbreaking last-second losses our team has had over the years (and that we have never forgotten). Then, with 10 seconds left in the game ... it happened ... and we went completely bonkers.  So now, along with every other Vikings fan, we truly know the answer to the question:

Do You Belive in Miracles?



Tomorrow we'll be in Colorado.

Within Barking Range - 1/16/18

Today's Oregon puzzle is posted in honor of my neighbor's dog, and her enthusiasm for playing with our cockapoo.  Since she has a fenced in yard, she is often outside and lets us know when she sees us that she'd like us to come over.  It's really great having her:

Guess What I'm Thinking - 1/15/18

Usually saying a puzzle is a "guess what I'm thinking" puzzle is a harsh criticism ... but with today's Rhode Island puzzle, it's just the name of the game.  As with so many things, the this particular theme was something I'd never heard of before spotting it in a geocaching puzzle, and I had fun checking it out.  If you like this one, the CO has a whole series of puzzles where you get to:

Olympic Rings - 1/14/18

We've had several big doses of winter already this year, so it looks to be a long one in upstate NY.  I don't find much to like about the season, once Christmas is past, but at least this year I can look forward to the Olympics, which will officially open on PyeongChang on 2/9.  I've always been a bit of an Olympics-TV-junkie, although the sports these days are a far cry from the ones I remember watching growing up.  I'm not sure how long I've had today's puzzle from Canada's province of Quebec in the "to be solved" pile, but I don't think it's been sitting there ever since:

TV Graveyard - 1/13/18

Today's puzzle is from upstate New York.  I am just old enough to remember the gigantic TV's that used to operate with long glass vacuum tubes. Whenever the TV wasn't working properly, we called the repairman (named "Junior") to come out and work on it.  I was always fascinated by the gigantic case of different tubes that he brought along, and he was able to keep those TV's running for years and years.  Today it seems like when a TV malfunctions it is immediately consigned to the:
