DAILY CALENDAR CHALLENGE #86 – MARCH 27
#1 THE ORIGAMI CALENDAR CHALLENGE – THE OCEAN BLUEWell, once you get a sailboat, you have to get an ocean on which to sail. And this was some of the most complicated folding I’ve ever done.

Little green and blue men … perhaps I’ll get around to working this puzzle a little later in the day. Not promising anything, but I had planned on watching the snow melt today. At least we know there were only 22 Venusians on the space stations.
#3 THE PAGE-A-DAY PUZZLE CALENDAR – CHOOCHOOLOOPS
After a quick guess, I’d say twelve different polybend shapes. Since the calendar is in the kitchen and the computer is in my office, I probably won’t check the answer on the back until lunch time. So we’ll see if I’m right or wrong then.
