I’m so excited that Frank of Dutch Goes the Photo! is back with his Tuesday Photo Challenge. This week’s theme is “puzzle.” He used the word “puzzlement” in his blog post, making me think of the statue in this first picture.
There’s nearly always a jigsaw puzzle in progress on the card table at my house. If you only look at the front of the pieces, this one is a challenge. But if you notice the back, putting it together is somewhat easier.
My father emails me most Sundays with a copy of “the fiver” – five intertwined Sudoku puzzles. He usually adds advice like “turn off the TV, get something to drink, and do the fiver.”
If a jigsaw puzzle or a Sudoku aren’t your thing, maybe you would enjoy a puzzle for your brain found in one of these books. (I’m a bit puzzled about the atlas being on this shelf!)
May you solve – or least come to terms with – every puzzle that comes your way this week.
I’m a week late to the challenge, but have thought about this picture since Nancy Merrill issued her photo a week challenge: Abandoned. These buildings mark the Smith Coal Mine, “the site of the worst underground coal mine disaster in Montana history.”
My parents and I had taken a drive, in part, to check out this site near Bearcreek, Montana. As much as we would have liked to get closer to look around and take pictures, we heeded the “no trespassing” signs. Besides that, the wind was cold and it was a steep walk down to the fence.
Yesterday, after supper, we started a list of words. Turns out Dad’s shop is a super place to take pictures in response to Cee’s challenge. Looking at the two pictures of his workbench (similar but not exactly alike), how many words with both an “r” and an “s” can you name? Note that we decided plurals don’t count unless the singular form has both an “r” and an “s.”
For a closer look, scroll through the following photos.
It’s another photo challenge and I get to pick the topic based on a picture! Click on this link to see the picture and the guidelines of Cee’s challenge.
Walk. I’m visiting my parents and we walk with dear friends every day. The picture above is definitely a candid shot, another possibility for the topic of the day.
Fence. More than one fence keeps folk on the foot bridge and out of the water. I’m intrigued by stripes and the grid in the shadow.
Orange. The only orange I could find outdoors in central Montana in mid-November is on Snickerdoodle’s scarf. After I looked a the challenge photo again, the topic for this picture could also be fuzzy.

In this strange time of pandemic, what brings you joy?
For my parents, it’s a walk and a visit with longtime friends. The walking started as rehab for Mom. In this time of social distancing, it’s grown into a (nearly) daily habit – good for body, mind, and spirit.
The gals stay on level ground. The guys take a longer loop. The dog would like to go with both but is forced to choose.
