DAILY CALENDAR CHALLENGE #139 – MAY 19, 2013
#1 THE ORIGAMI CALENDAR CHALLENGE – THE NOTHING WEEKEND
Still waiting for the rain to arrive and quell the attack of the cotton wood tree allergens. If it does, I might fold something special this afternoon.
My first origami rooster … though with minor modifications I might be able to morph it into a bald eagle for the Fourth of July. It wasn’t a wasted weekend after all.
#2 THE MENSA PUZZLE CALENDAR – THE SUNDAY HALF / MIKE’S COIN JAR
HELL’S BELL AND TANGERINES! Wouldn’t you know that they would throw another math problem at me during the middle of a spring allergy attack?
But, the answer is so simple, everyone should be able to figure it out. I did! Even though I sneezed three times while doing it.
ANSWER: First, what is the value of the four different coins in Mike’s jar? One quarter, one dime, one nickel and one penny is 41 cents. You should be able to figure it from there.
#3 THE PAGE-A-DAY PUZZLE CALENDAR – PHONETIC WORDPLAY
I figured it out … so don’t peek at the answer below.
