  • Bird Pictures Puzzle

    Hi folks....

    Here's a puzzle made from a calendar picture of a living room. Each of the pictures on the wall is of a bird.....and each of them is cut into little pieces as a puzzle unto itself (but with locks to pieces outside its frame).

    I'll be taking a break from puzzle making for a trip in mid May. Our son Tim Johnson is the director for Dreamworks of the animated film "Over the Hedge", opening May 19. He has invited me to accompany him on an all-first-class trip to the Cannes Film Festival. I find I have to use two things I haven't used in 50 years: a passport and a tuxedo!

    Tim directed ANTZ and Sinbad and has high hopes for this one. It has been scored by test audiences higher than either of the Shrek films.

    I've posted the puzzle's front and back below. Its made from 5-ply poplar and contains 381 pieces.

    Have phun.....Carter

    Another masterpiece, Carter. You the Man!
    Sounds like your son got a healthy dose of daddy's creative genes. Have a fun trip.

      That's just marvelous! You do such good work on these puzzles. Take care and have fun (phun) in France. You will find the people in the South of France are much friendlier then the Paris people. (Paris people scare me and I have been there 3 times).

      I am, as well, going on a trip. Tomorrow my wife are setting sail for England. we will visit Bermuda, the Aizors Islands., and Spain before landing in Southampton.

          Hey Carter,

          I've see the movie trailer for Over the Hedge and can't wait for it to come out. I'm a fan of the comic strip.

          (Antz was also great, as was Sinbad.)

          Enjoy the craziness, Cannes film festival is something else. Give us a report when you come back

          And congrats on the puzzle, nice work as usual.


          DW788. -Have fun in the shop or it isn't a hobby anymore.

            Bon voyage, Carter and Bill.

            That's a lovely puzzle, Carter, and I bet you'll astound the Europeans with your 'calling cards'.

            Have phun, folks .

              Carter - Your puzzels never cease to amaze me!! Wonderful job as always.
              Have fun at the film festival. I've seen the trailers to the movie too and am waiting for it to come out at the theaters.

                SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

                Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...

                Being a diet controlled type 2 diabetic, I check my glucose. Checked before my shot on Tuesday it was fine. Checked on Wednesday after a morning walk expecting to see less than 100 and about fainted when it read 158. Every check has been 150 or more since then. Started reading and yes, the shots can...
