I'm not that good at puzzles, but the pieces all seem to fit together.
Does this look right to you?

Here's an easy one; pillow talk:

BuzzFeed recently posted a bunch of rebuses (picture puzzles) that are not nearly as easy.  In fact, although I am a genious a jenius a geenius very smart, I could only figure out a little more than half of them.  I sent emails to my family asking for their help in finding out the answers.  My son Matt called me within 10 minutes with the rest of the answers.  (He's apparently much smarter than I thought he was!!)  Here is their list with the answers at the bottom, but don't cheat--try to get them yourself:

Some puzzle cartoons for you:



  1. Some I knew, some were epic fails.
    I did know tangerine. Which would have made two in that maths class.
    And sudoko wouldn't improve an MRI. Only unconsciousness would improve them. For a non-invasive medical test they do my head in.

    1. I wouldn't mind MRI's if it weren't for the constant banging noises!!

  2. Willie Maze!
    I got Peter Pan right away and thought to myself, this is easy. then I scrolled down, down, down, I only got twelve correct answers :(
    Like EC, I did get tangerine and I almost got the incomplete murder of crows. I know a group is a murder, but didn't remember how many constitutes a group.
    I like crossword puzzles, but can't do the cryptic ones. I mostly do the code cracker type. Sudokus are beyond me.

    1. That's why I had to ask my family for help!!

  3. According to your revised map, I'm living in Georgia. I think people in "New" Georgia will not enjoy the weather here.

    1. I'm in California, which is just south of Maryland!!

  4. I got most of them, but my brain hurts. Now I live in Illinois again. Nooooooo.


    1. Don't you hate it when your brain starts to bleed? I know I do--it's so hard to apply a Band-Aid!!

  5. Hum, I use to think I was smart. If 70% is eking by, I didn't eke. Good thing I don't have to earn a living these days. Think I need a nap.

  6. I didnt get a lot of these but do see you found my bucket list.

  7. I had about six of them I had to look up. And I still didn't Mao in the L for a while after you told me--LOL! :)


Your comments make my day, which shows you how boring my life has become.
