Original Title: Zigzags
New Title: Christmas Crackers*

*I think this title came about when Hester drank the Christmas leftover pints of rum laced eggnog last night.
**A correction is in order. According to Hester- "It was brandy and port."

Mandy, I'm going to have to have a long talk with you. Currently you have 662 top spots on my puzzles. That's way toooooo much! However, at least you're having fun. :-)

LOL!! This is a really really fun puzzle... comments and all!! Thanks Wendy :~))

pdevredis

:-))))))))))))))))))))))

Pat, if I can't be at the top, I won't solve one.....unless no one knows about it. Regardless, it has to be super small. On a side note, BAD Pat! LOL
You better love me. ;-)

Oh, Wendy, the things we admit without realizing it! You must still be expecting to make the board, even with your "slow time", or you wouldn't have to sign in as a guest--no one would see your (Wendy) time unless you did make the board!!! Love ya, honey!!! :-)))))))

Hester, and I left you a new reply after yours (a short while ago). Twelve pieces is my absolute limit. No kidding! Now that Mandy posts her Who Knew??? puzzles in that size, I will solve them to show support, but I plan on mostly doing it as a guest because my time will be slow and I'd rather that I was the only one to know it. LOL I made an exception with yours.

Not too easily, Wendy! I left you a message back on the puzzle and was really chuffed that you managed to solve it. :-))

Wendy_13

Edie, I was joking! But I know that many, in fact probably most of the very small puzzle solvers will redo the puzzles. Only people like Franc who likes the real small ones, and is super fast, won't bother solving a small puzzle again.

LOL! OK, Hester, I should have known. And HOLY COW re your car. I suppose you can't really drag it into your house after all. I'll have to solve your puzzle but ever so slowly.

Pat, you, and just about everyone else will solve the very small ones a number of times. I think I told you before that about two years ago I solved a wee one numerous times just so I could finally get on the leader board. Everyone but one person had the exact same time. It was exasperating. I'm so glad that you enjoyed this one. :-)

The only puzzles I'll re-solve to improve my time are ones under 1 minute, where my competitive drive takes over from my better nature! LOL! So you'll have to settle for just one solve per puzzle, Wendy--but a very joy-filled, thankful one! :-)))

Madam, you are maligning my whiter than white character!! It was brandy and port! LOL

And digging out the bluebird may take a while...

Well I don't know about 10 times. I usually try the smaller ones a couple times especially if a light went on part way through and I had an 'ah ha' moment or if I felt I was flubbing something that I thought I could improve on. Or if I've missed the board by only a few seconds in your older puzzles then for sure I'll give them another go.

Oh, Edie, I just read Hester's comment first...but I like chomping teeth too, so I might change the title of the larger sized one of these...or the next time I make a zigzag puzzle. :-)

PJ, yes, and it was nice surprise to see your sense of humor coming out. :-)

Edie, this is great- you can add thousands of additional solves to every puzzle I create. You can be conservative at first, and maybe solve each puzzle 10 times initially, and then when you get a chance, solve them again...an additional 10 times....or more. Right now you are #6 with 405 solves. That's outstanding! :-)

Hester, that's awful. Only 3 seconds faster and you'd be on the board? Then you've got an outstanding time as well! Both you and Edie are becoming super fast puzzle solvers.

Ohhhh, boy, do I feel for you. This is the mildest winter we've had in years as far as snow is concerned, but spending the day digging out snow is REALLY an awful job. You'll probably be sore later on if you're not used to digging snow. It uses muscles that we don't use at any other time.
And that's awful about your ivy. I love houses that are ivy-covered. Put your car in your house and cover it with a blanket. That'll warm it up.

7:03, just 3 seconds off the board. I'm putting it down to being tired from shovelling snow all yesterday afternoon! We got my husband's car out from under a huge drift and the 20 foot ivy which was pulled off the gable wall by the weight of snow. My car isn't going anywhere anytime soon!!
These, to me are a box of Christmas crackers! Well, it seems more like Christmas than Easter!! LOL :-)

Chompin Jehosaphats you look away for a few minutes and it's like you were never there. Had to fix this one as well Wendy. LPL

Wendy - there is a corner in me with a sense of humor - remember, I like yours :-)))

Edie - I took it very slowly - and the teeth did not get me :-)))

PJ

This was fun Wendy but the whole time solving I kept seeing chomping teeth coming to get me if I didn't hurry. Not so stress free but very enjoyable. Thanks

Wendy_13

ROTFL! I didn't know you had such a good sense of humor, PJ. What you said was very cute. :-)

puzzlejan

I was only looking at the pieces, then thought I'd solve one corner, then one piece found another....... Wendy - it was fascinating, ok - 10:09.
