this just made my night. it was a fun, challenging solve - especially the lights. the tree is lovely and the leaves look like they're sparkling. at some point, could you do a jaguar? it's my favorite car.
#2: Linda Martin (ilovethispuzzle123) on Oct 7, 2013
i'm sorry, aldege - I should have said "please"..
#3: Thomas Genuine (Genuine) on Oct 8, 2013
WOW... :) (this is my *5 quality)

(I like to ask someone... especially you: Are there differences of sqirrels and chipmunks? In my dictionaries both have the same meanings.)
#4: Aldege Cholette (aldege) on Oct 8, 2013
Thank you Linda,I would love to make a Jaguar for you. Is there a particular model you would like?,perhaps the new Vanguard,or are you an old XKE fan. I also am a big Jaguar fan,especially the XKE's of the 60's. When I was an electronics service technician,I use to service the printing equipment at the Jaguar of Canada head offices in Toronto,Ontario. I loved going there.:)

I've gone into the jaguar dealership just to look at the cars! i'm an xke fan. I can't wait to see the puzzle!

Thank you Thomas. I would like to clear something up with you Thomas. At times you seem to be a very nice person,but at other times you have seemed to be looking to start some controversy,especially with Norma. We are a close knit group around here and we tend to look out for each other. We also are in the habit of welcoming people and I'm sure a lot of us would like to welcome you. I had an experience on this site where I was asked to collaborate on a project with some other creators. The person that started the project got everyone excited about the project,but turned out to be a control freak,and not a team player. The project failed because of this,which was a shame,cause it had great potential. Therefore,I am a little skeptical of your sincerity. I will gladly answer your question,but just know I will not get involved in any controversy.

I don't know a lot about squirrels,or chipmunks,but chipmunks are much smaller than squirrels. They are slightly larger than a good sized mouse. Here in New Brunswick we have your normal sized black or brown squirrels,and we also have a lot of the smaller red squirrels,as well as a lot of chipmunks. They're all very cute. Thx again for the high praise on this puzzle Thomas and I hope you understand my feelings.:)

I've been missing your cars, Aldège, and I echo everything Linda has said, including hoping you'll make an XKE. They've been my favourite since the 60s and as I've posted before, when I win the lottery it will be one of my first purchases, in hunter green, of course, lol.

Your '67 Camaro has taken me on a trip down memory lane. My beloved mother-in-law had a blue one, and brought me to the licensing bureau to use it for my driver's license test all those years ago.

Thx Lollipop,I could make car puzzles everyday,but I'm afraid people would get bored of them,so I throw in the odd Destyny puzzle now and then,lol.:)
#10: Linda Martin (ilovethispuzzle123) on Oct 9, 2013
@norma - i'll take mine in blue :-)

@Thomas - here in Colorado, usa we have tons of both chipmunks and squirrels. we usually distinguish them from their size (Chipmunks around here are smaller), location (the chipmunks tend to stay near the mountains, while the squirrels are all over the neighborhoods), and the colors (the chipmunks here usually have a stripe along their backs, while the squirrels tend to be one color of brownish grey, brown, reddish brown or black) i'm not sure of other regions, though - someone else on this site may have way more knowledge about them than I do. :-)
#11: Thomas Genuine (Genuine) on Oct 9, 2013
Aldege, I understood You.
I don't want to like me, but need to recognize what I know.
Surely I know much more about theory of logical puzzles, than any of you on this site (but it's not important). I mean I can solve even the hardest logical problems, too.

I don't want to become a member of your closer society, because the american attitude (f.e. Norma's opinion of liberty) is very far from me.

But it's all not related with the quality of these puzzles. For me the best quality in PBN are reality-like drawings. Real persons, real objects, real buildings etc.

Tnx for explaining squirrel-chipmunk thing. I think we have only chipmunks in our woods and city forests... perhaps squirrels can be found in zoopark.

That was harsh Tom!
#13: Tom O'Connell (sensei69) on Oct 10, 2013
nice entry
#14: Aldege Cholette (aldege) on Oct 10, 2013
Well gang,I tried to give Thomas the benefit of doubt,and he shoved it where the sun never shines. As far as I'm concerned,it's his loss not to be part of our so called "closer society". I feel a bit like an idiot for allowing myself to get dragged into this bull s**t yet again,but I will get over it. Meanwhile,I couldn't care less if you like me or not,and I wasn't necessarily trying to like you Thomas,I was just trying to be a decent human being. As far as your knowledge of logic is concerned,that means s**t too because you can barely make a decent puzzle,in fact you should get lessons from your daughter on creating. As for your incredible intellect and superior knowledge of things real and how things are better where you live,if that's true than why do so many people from other countries want to immigrate to the United States and Canada. We are known worldwide as the land of opportunity and prosperity. Trust me,we dumb Americans are completely aware of the wonderful cultures and beauty of the other countries in our planet called earth,we just happen to love where we live. We're not perfect,but were darn close. I bet if you ever travel to our fair land you may be able to find a hat that will fit on that enormous head of yours. I will take this opportunity now to apologize to my friends here for my childish behaviour,and for allowing myself to get sucked into lowering myself to your level. I promise gang that I won't let it happen again. Sorry all.:)
#15: Aldege Cholette (aldege) on Oct 10, 2013
Thx Tom buddy.:)
#16: Tom O'Connell (sensei69) on Oct 11, 2013
What do you mean, Aldege, that we're not perfect? ;/
#17: Aldege Cholette (aldege) on Oct 11, 2013
Rofl,o.k. Tom maybe you and I are,lol.:)
#18: Susan Duncan (medic25733) on Oct 18, 2013
A blue 77 Camaro was my first new car - had it 3 weeks and my sister had an accident with it. Never was the same after that but I drove it for another 8 years. Great puzzle Aldege.
#19: Aldege Cholette (aldege) on Oct 19, 2013
Thx Susan, having any car for 8yrs is an accomplishment,especially when your young. I've had my 58 Dodge for 12 yrs now,I hope I can get another 12 before I die.:)
#20: Susan Duncan (medic25733) on Oct 20, 2013
Well here's hoping the car dies before you do :)
#21: Norma Dee (norm0908) on Oct 24, 2013
It took me a while to complete this puzzle, as beautiful and as "perfect" as it is, because some puzzles with lots of different colors and lots of ones are hard on my eyes and I solve them a bit at a time. I'm so glad I was able to finish it because it is truly great.
Aldege, you are one of the kindest people I know and you always bend over backwards for people, giving them the benefit of the doubt. I cannot fault you for giving Thomas a chance because that is your nature, but Thomas lives in a world of his own creation, a place where, thank God, we don't have to live. He totally and very deliberately misinterpreted everything I said about liberty just to create controversy. And except for people like Thomas and Karl, we do have a nearly perfect world here.
#22: Aldege Cholette (aldege) on Oct 25, 2013
Thx for understanding Norma and I agree that our little group or gang here is near perfect except for the two you mentioned. You are also one of the kindest and nicest people here Norma,luckily we have a lot of great friends here,we have a lot of fun,and I totally enjoy my relationship with my friends here. Making puzzles and knowing people are getting enjoyment from them is very rewarding. I'm sure you feel the same way. Thx for being my friend.:)
#23: Norma Dee (norm0908) on Oct 25, 2013
I do feel the same way, Aldege. We are very lucky. It is so nice to be able to push the troubles aside for a little while and have some fun and enjoy the Forum which is sometimes hilarious. Puts TV to shame.
#24: Lollipop (lollipop) on Oct 26, 2013
Ditto and ditto - which is what they say in the Department of Redundancy Department.
#25: Aldege Cholette (aldege) on Oct 27, 2013
Very true Norma.:)
#26: Aldege Cholette (aldege) on Oct 27, 2013
Rofl Lollipop,and glad you agree.:)
#27: Velma Warren (Shiro) on May 21, 2019
Very challenging. Thought it was a house for a long time. Tough puzzle.
#28: besmirched tea (Besmirched Tea) on Jan 8, 2022
cool car, but I hate solving confetti aka quilts.
I literally had to stop at one point because it was giving me an actual headache. But I do like the car!
