Square Count was a total of 37 squares.
WEARY QUERY OF THE DAY
I accidentally set my camera down on the table this morning and took this picture of the loaf of German Dark Wheat Bread which was sitting next to it.
My question is … is that bird seed in my bread, or the eggs of some exotic and deadly bread eating insect?
#1 THE ORIGAMI CALENDAR CHALLENGE – LOTUS BLOSSOM
Did you realize that in my entire adult life, I have never been faced with a practical situation that could be resolved by using a math calculation? I invite anyone other than my nephew, a math teacher extraordinaire, who have resolved practical situations by using math or algebra calculations to tell us about this incident in the comments. My nephew reminded me on Sunday that there are more teaching positions open in the field of math than there are people to fill them. He also pointed out that for every available English teaching position, there are about two dozen applicants. Thank God, I decided to sell my soul and write advertising. Notice how I managed to write my way out of trying to figure out how many orange wedges Walter had in his dumb soggy paper bag. If you are so inclined, there were thirty-nine wedges in the bag.
I came up with 76, and I was wrong.
My next post will be the 500th since I moved to WordPress.
This one was fairly simple.
I figured out all of the word matches except number six.

And the answer is enoytrof.
This origami challenge with GNASHERS takes me back to my youth on the farm. Which is strange, since I am a totally born and bred cityboy. But occasionally we did venture out to the country (which is now known as the suburbs) to experience the wild times of yesteryear.
(Ten second break for everyone to say “Oooh!” and “Aaah! and “Isn’t he cute?”) Yes, I was … and actually I still am in rather doddering old man way. But getting back to the GNASHERS, chickens can be rather fowl when they want to … and they do bite. Especially when they think your tiny toes are pieces of corn.
But I did manage to fold the GNASHERS with no problem. And I decided to use a green paper to make the finished product look more reptilian since our birds really are descendants of the dinosaurs of old.
Guess I should have taken a video of the GNASHER in action.
I did get the Square Count correct.
