Saturday Puzzle-Contest: What’s he doing here?
Saturday, August 12th, 2023

UPDATE: The winner is…Deb Brown!

It’s Saturday! The Saturday before school starts! The kids are ready! They’ve met their teachers, have all their clothes and supplies. Now, the nerves have set in. They’re planning their first day’s outfits, putting in their orders for their lunchboxes, etc. Our little town is having a “Back to School Blowout” tonight in the town center, complete with bouncy houses, facepaint artists, etc. Hopefully, there will be food trucks, too, for the parents as they herd their kids through the stations.

We’re ready (and NOT) for them to go back to school. Schedules will compress. Timing will be everything. (I’ll get back my quiet “alone time” to write and edit! Woot!) My daughter and I do hate the passage of time. We want to keep them little, but they’re eager to spread their wings. Same ole, same ole, I’m sure for most parents and grandparents.

Today, I had the 19-year-old clean my spaces. It’s such a big help. I can settle in my chair in my clean office and get some s**t done today. I hope. Until the next emergency—hopefully, not a power outage today. I noticed this morning, when I popped into town, that there were new power poles laid out all along the road to replace those splintered old things that keep falling every time the wind blows. I wonder if they’ll give us warning when they have to cut the power to install the expanse. Ha!

Anways, you have a challenge today. Solve the puzzle then tell me what this creature is doing. Or tell me what you would do if you were face-to-face with it! Comment for a chance to win a $5 Amazon gift card. Enjoy the puzzle and have a great rest of the weekend!

    What would I do if I came face to face with this beautiful creature. IDK. Probably sit down and admire his beauty. Watch him play in the snow, or until he wonders away.

    He is probably hoping you would go away. Not YOU, but people in general. We are invading his space. I would slowly back away leaving him i peace.

    I’d be leaving as quickly and quietly as possible.

    Honestly, if I were to find myself face to face with him, I’d be backing away slowing but firmly. Not sure I should show my back, LOL!

    I think he is checking us out. I would stay out of his way.

    I’d back away – slow & steady – no eye contact – no running

    He is a Wolf Shifter looking for his Mate and he sees her through the Window and he is stunned by her beauty.

    The wolf is watching carefully, as he doesn’t want to spook the woman that has caught his eye.

    I would hope to see this beauty from just far enough away to be able to sit and admire it. These are such beautiful creatures. Just maybe if I was able to watch enough he could shift into a beautiful human male specimen too
