That's exactly right, Hester....except that in my case, I don't have to aspire to it. I'm already there.

I quite like being a " Dingbat." One always has to have something to aspire to! LOL

feistyfreddy

Phew! :-D

Hester, continue beating your head against the keyboard. I have a little exercise for you to do.
If you look at the letter/number combination in your first link here (F8EISZC6) and then compare it with the second link in your previous post which has the letter/number combination F8EISZC6, you'll see that they are very similar. I'm getting the strong feeling that you don't want me to find out if that door has a knob on it. LOL

Don't worry. I've gotten a kick out of this. I've found someone who is as much a dingbat as I can be at times. ;-)

DOH! Beating head against keyboard!! Missplaced full stops!! When will I remember to put on my own, not BB's specs!
If you haven't completely given up on me Wendy;

Our last 2 days were in Brugges and I'll be posting pics of there soon.
Sorry about the waste of time. Feeling foolish :-(

Thank you so very much, Hester! I especially love the last one. Just so you know, the second link didn't work and the third link had this- well, you can try out your third link, but I took a screenshot of it and made another one for posterity's sake. hehehe

I have to tell you that there's a HUGE difference between the preview panes and the actual completed puzzles.
I would have been in awe, visiting all the places you've visited.
I was in Belgium for a month and a half when I was fairly young because my boyfriend at the time was a bicycle racer. He was the US cycling champ for two years in a row. Anyway, I had an amazing time there and just loved how much nicer it was there than in the US. I just love very old buildings, cobblestone streets, and castles.

Sorted!

I really hope this helps you see them more as we saw them. It was such a stunning area to visit. :-))

Hi Hester. I look forward to it, but please, do not feel under pressure to post them anytime soon. I'm way behind on things myself, so I know that any additional 'work' can be just too darned much.

feistyfreddy

Hi Wendy. No problem. I'll sort them out later tonight or in the morning. Best Beloved has control of the Mac presently and that's where the pics are. :-)

Wendy13

Hester, what a wonderful offer! I have four that I'd love to see up close and personal-

And of course, this one. I'd like to know ahead of time if I need to buy a doorknob. LOL
I hope you don't regret me picking as many as I have, but I couldn't help it. If there are any in the future that I'd like to see, I'll try to be more 'conservative' and not pick so many.
I haven't created any puzzles for today yet, so I'll be busy for the next 5 or 6 hours, but after that, I'll come back and check to see if you've posted any.
I appreciate what you're willing to do...so thank you very much. :-)

feistyfreddy

Wendy, thankyou for explaining to me. What a bummer to not be able to solve all the gorgeous puzzles on jigidy but thankyou for keeping the rest of us happy with your super cheery puzzles.
If it would help I can post a private copy of maybe 4-10 pieces of some of the lovely French locations ? just let me know. :-))

Wendy_13

Hester, oh, it's not my eyesight that prevents me from solving puzzles; it's my hand. My hand is always in pain, and when I used to solve puzzles it eventually became so painful that my hand would twitch and hurt enough that I'd have a hard time sleeping at night. With creating puzzles, I can rest my hand all the time, but when I solved puzzles, I had to plow through with no rest and my hand always tensed up when I solved. It got me lots of top spots but in the end, it wasn't worth it.

My eyesight is bad...quite bad, but I use ZOOM constantly and I do mean constantly. Even though I am never able to see things clearly (no crisp lines), I can still see well enough to create things.

feistyfreddy

LOL :-)) Wendy, you say that your eyesight means you can't solve. May I ask then how you manage to make such beautiful puzzles ( If that's not too personal )

Wendy13

Laughing my head off! There are advantages and disadvantages to poor eyesight. I focused in on the door and the roof...and couldn't figure out what the rest was. Now I'm not even sure if the door has a knob. I'll have to fix that when I move in. hehehe

feistyfreddy

This one might be a little too "bijou" even for me , Wendy LOL. I just loved it though. My guess is that it's the lock up for the house across the road ( my pic of old house in St Gery). A pretty clever use of space!!

Wendy13

In my younger years I would have loved nothing more than to make the space livable inside but to keep it as much as I possibly could 'as is.' I just love 'worn out' old houses. I'm looking forward to more of your pictures, Hester. :-)
