The Odd & The End

The Odd

Who would have thought that the last minute $4.00 stocking stuffer I purchased for my wife would be the biggest hit of Christmas? I purchased this silly sound machine thinking she could use it with her elementary (special needs) students to get their attention when they were uncooperative. I don't know if it will ever make it to the classroom as she and Timmothy are having way to much fun with it.

The Odd

The End

Carol and Timmothy finished the puzzle on Monday. I thought it would take them 3 days... it ended up taking more than 3 weeks and believe me they worked on it every day. It looks great BUT there was one bummer. They discovered in the first week that one piece was missing. After the puzzle was together Timmothy and I fabricated a new piece by scanning neighboring pieces and making the new piece out of a similar cardboard.

The End

Bob "RealMan" Timm I have to agree with Bill Dandridge I wish I could hear the sounds...really curious!

Bob, go figure I bought a super duper Christmas Tree that spits snow but sadly all around the floor not inside the umbrella $75 failure.... and the  only ones that liked it were the cats.... speaking of which I loved the puzzle and wow how creative to "fabricate" the missing piece, I could not tell which one was missing... will it get framed?

Morning Bob.

Where did you find that machine?  I want to look for another one for us.

I think I found your puzzle piece under my couch! We moved it yesterday to paint a wall, and there it was!

Good morning Bob. Who knew is right. I love the kitties in your picture at the end.

Good morning Bob. Something purchased on a whim becomes the favorite. Go figure! Enjoy your day!

I think that my niece and nephews would have a great deal of fun with something like that.

Hello Bob,  Video, I agree.  Wow a 3 week puzzle.  I like doing puzzles if I am snow in.  That has not happen in a long time.

Lisa Von Domek I will work on it this afternoon is she lets me play with it.

Hannah Williams I can believe it knowing a couple of the sounds it makes.

I'm not sure about a frame Endre Barath, Jr. but we may mount it. It does make a nice picture.

James Dray I got it at CVS. I was a little irritated at first that they did not offer a discount 1 day before Christmas but I'm glad I purchased it anyway.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) 23 days ago

I don't doubt it Kat Palmiotti , those things are like socks in the dryer... you never know where they will show up.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) 23 days ago

Thanks Sheila Anderson . I'm trying to get to like cats before I move to NC.

Isn't that the way it goes Wayne Martin . I think she liked it more that the gift I spent the most on.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) 23 days ago

No doubt they would Brian England , it's fun for all ages.

I was surprised it took 3 weeks Will Hamm . It was 1,000 pieces but it didn't look that hard to me. Video coming soon. 

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) 23 days ago

I could totally use this sound machine!  And as an avid puzzler myself, that one missing piece is frustrating but what a good idea in fashioning a replacement piece.

Francine Viola I just came from CVS and I looked to see if they had another but there were no more left . As far as the puzzle , scanning the surrounding area and pasting it to a piece of cardboard was easy but cutting it to shape was a bit harder.

Posted by Bob "RealMan" Timm, Bob Timm, Project Coordinator for Tivoli Homes (Tivoli Custom Homes) 23 days ago

It's cute appearance seems well put together too, Bob.  I can understand why it was a hit.

I just posted a video Myrl Jeffcoat so now you can hear it as well.
