The Cat Always Wins - 5/30/20

Today's puzzle has us back in the U.K.  Like a lot of other people, I've been spending too much time on the computer lately.  One of the things I came across was a video like this one which reminded me why I don't enjoy playing:

Cut and Paste - 5/29/20

I forgot about this Ithaca puzzle since it was archived not long after I started caching, and I hadn't been able to make the find.  I came across it in poking around looking at some of the oldest puzzle caches in our area and noticed it was just one day short of the 15th anniversary of its placement, so I figured that was good enough reason to feature it today.  Have fun with a little:

First visit to Taiwan - 5/23/20

Taiwan has been in the news a bit lately, and I won't get into the semantics of how to define it but it does appear to be a new area for us to visit here. I'm not sure how I've missed looking at any there, but I'll definitely be going back to check out more.  For today try your luck with:

Brain Teaser - 5/21/20

Today's Oklahoma puzzle dropped into my in-box yesterday and I thought it was a hoot. I'll definitely have to check out the others in the series.  If you've been thinking about passing along a puzzle yourself, I hope you'll go ahead and send it along.  Those messages always really make my day.  Now have some fun with:

Crypto Crossword - 5/20/20

I've gotten in the habit of trying to do the New York Times Crossword every day, and have been enjoying them.  For the last few weeks my son has been joining me in working on them nightly, and a couple of times we've even gotten my husband to help with a clue or two.  Today's puzzle is a brand new one that popped up a little over 50 miles away from me today.  Sharpen your pencil and have some fun with this:

Sword in the Stone - 5/19/20

Today's puzzle takes us to the United Kingdom, and it's the result of my looking for a "Vikings" themed puzzle.  I know I've talked before about following the Vikings football team, but in this case I'm talking about the History Channel TV show, which I've been having fun watching lately.  I find the quasi-history interesting and all of the battles and intrigue probably remind me a little bit of Game of Thrones, which also turns up in this puzzle.  See if you can sort out the:

You're Toast - 5/17/20

Today's puzzle takes us to the United Kingdom. I am a great fan of toast, and hardly a day goes by that I don't have it for breakfast.  I like it just slightly toasty, with no dark brown or blackened bits.  So here's a friendly word of advice ... if you ever change the setting higher on the toaster, please put it back where you found it when you're done.  Otherwise you could cause your family members to scorch their breakfast, and then:

Rules should never be broken - 5/16/20

It was nice seeing our area open up to geocaching again, and I had quite a few newly published caches pop up in my inbox, one of which I'm sharing with you today.  I didn't venture out for any caches myself, but when I do I know I'll still be following the social distancing rules because:

Bee Movies - 5/14/20

Today's puzzle takes us to North Carolina.  During this time at home I've found myself watching a lot of B movies on Netflix, so this puzzle seems quite appropriate:

Gradually Reopening - 5/13/20

Today's puzzle takes us to Oregon. The state of New York is set to start gradually reopening in a few areas at the end of this week, and my county is one of them.  We've already heard from our reviewer that they are planning to start publishing caches again, so I guess it's almost:

The Cribbage Master - 5/3/20

One of the things we've been doing during the last few weeks sitting at home is playing cribbage.  My husband and I dug the board out first, and then our son joined in some games with both of us in turn.  We haven't tried a three-handed game yet, but may do that shortly.  Whenever I play cribbage I think of my Dad, who we lost one year ago today.  Every time I visited him we would play hand after hand, often sitting on the back porch in the shade.  We played so often for so many years that I know exactly what he would say in response to pretty much any turn of events in the game, and as I've been playing recently I've heard his voice in my head many times.  I still have his cribbage board, complete with the scorch marks from when it was in the trunk of his car which caught on fire out in the desert back in the 1950's. I haven't brought myself to use it during these recent games, though.  It still feels too soon.  So today's New York puzzle is shared in honor and memory of my dad, a wonderful father and grandfather, educator, public servant, and:

Funny Farm - 5/1/20

Today's puzzle is a little late in appearing since I was distracted this evening both by water seeping into the basement and appearing on the Caching in the Northwest podcast.  With an airtime of 9:00 p.m. Pacific, I was definitely up past my bedtime.  The CO of today's puzzle which I first shared back in 2014 came up during our discussion and so I thought I'd spotlight one of his puzzles that I first shared back in 2014.  This one is appropriate because lately I've been feeling about ready for the:
