Dazed and Confused - 3/30/14

Today's puzzle takes us back to the geo-art duck series from Canada's Ontario province that I featured last week.  Hope it won't leave you feeling:

 WTD? - TEXT ME!!!

Tomorrow we'll be in California.

Hello, Newman - 3/29/14

I came across today's New York puzzle not long after watching the Super Bowl and seeing the commercial with Jerry and George back at the coffee shop just like old times (except for Jerry's much shorter haircut).  We even got to hear him say:

Hello Newman

Tomorrow we'll head back up to Canada's province of Ontario.

What the Duck? - 3/27/14

Today's puzzle is part of a series of geo-art in Canada's province of Ontario.  My friend passed it along to me and I'm hoping maybe we'll be able to go and get them sometime. "It's not that far," she said, and I agree.  It's certainly not like going to:

WTD? - The Dark Side of the Moon

Tomorrow we'll be in California.

Fill it In - 3/24/14

Today's Wisconsin puzzle is a type of puzzle I recently taught my niece and nephews how to do.  I told them: Remember to only use each word once, and no writing the words in backwards or upside down.  If you make a mistake, you'll have to erase it all and :


Tomorrow we'll be in California.

Ripple Effect - 3/23/14

Today's Illinois puzzle is one that I had printed out in preparation for sitting through my daughter's long swim meet.  Imagine my surprise when she sat down and worked it out herself.  I guess sometimes with puzzling there's a:

A Crossed Stick - 3/21/14

Today's California puzzle is one that I've had on the radar for a long time, but was never able to even get it started.  Having had some more practice with the genre, I am having more fun with them and can appreciate how tough it must be to construct:

The Nineteenth Hole - 3/15/14

I chose today's Ohio puzzle because it's the perfect theme to honor my dad's birthday today.  He has had a life-long love for the subject matter, and was recently honored by his alma mater's team (just shy of 60 years after graduation) as an inaugural inductee into their hall of fame.  As for myself, I never really mastered much more than the:

Nineteenth Hole

Tomorrow we'll be in Wisconsin.

Off the Grid - 3/13/14

Today's Massachusetts puzzle is another one I found while looking for pencil and paper puzzles to take with me to work on while sitting through a long swim meet.  I had seen this kind of crossword puzzle before, but had never tried one before.  You'll see it requires you to be:

Nurikabe - 3/12/14

Today's puzzle continues the Japanese theme from yesterday's puzzle.  It is part of a series from Canada's province of Nova Scotia which I've featured here before, but I had never done this one until I recently went on a hunt for some paper and pencil puzzles to take to my daughter's long swim meet.  The wikpedia link in the puzzle is supposed to point here.  Have some logical fun with:

JLP1: Nurikabe

Tomorrow, another of my pencil and paper finds, this one from Massachusetts.

Not Bonsai - 3/11/14

Based on the description in today's puzzle from downstate New York, I doubt I will ever be mistaken for a ninja cacher.

Tomorrow we'll be in California another day.
