Passing Time in NM in Winter

One thing that's really popular in NM is reading...which we've been doing alot of lately. But puzzles are something we can set out & do together as time permits. Here's one Ron finished while I was gone to see Gavin!
Now here's a crazy one! We thought it looked simple, but not all of the pieces interlock! Some just rest against each other & different pieces hold them in. I've circled a close up of how some pieces don't lock. There's another arrow to the right of the circle to show more crazy matches! Click on the pics to enlarge them.
This one was a pretty panoramic!
We thought this next one would be easy 'cuz the pieces were regular. But all of those orange flowers just about drove us bonkers!
But so far the worst of all has been this 3D puzzle! It's a pretty picture, but the 3D wiggles on each piece! We could only work on it for a little while before getting queasy! I don't think we'll do another of these any time soon! Plus in the picture on the right, you can see how the pieces fit weird! Cardboard on the bottom & the plastic 3D on the top made for a strange surface!

So, after that one, we decided that we'd stick to a simpler puzzle. Just a nice dog. Next time I think it's kitties!
