Boys and Girls,

I take a sadistic pleasure in dishing up my puzzles to those squatters that inhabit my planet without an explicit invitation, however, with over 220 days of C19 lockdown and 72 years of gracing this Earth, I finally managed to get diagnosed with ADHD (mind you, by a questionable source) and draw a fine line between ignorance and arrogance. Consequently I feel that I can now tell myself to get stuffed without recrimination and/or an armpit of a 1,000 camel infestation (another story).

I blundered across this puzzle (yes, another bloody puzzle) that I affectionately labelled Frenchie
The puzzle is attributed to a Ruskie (I didn’t use the ”J” word pottzy) bloke by the name of Viktor Genel, however, the puzzle was published on the WEB in French so I was hesitant in calling it a “Russian for a new Puzzle name”… and therefore the froggy moniker stood… furthermore it has the shape of an R solidifying the name of fRrenchie (with a silent ”f”)...

Designed in SketchUp,

based on Victor’s photograph,

I didn’t think it was worth of my “normal” large laminated production, however, downsizing to a single layered 6mm MDF pieces,

it was ideal for a large production,

for another freebie distribution.

To cut a short story long, I gave this puzzle to a visiting 10 yo young-un (all within legal C19 restrictions), who has also been tagged with a legitimate ADHD diagnosis, hoping it might keep him occupied for a few hours.
Whether it was due to lockup or my animal nightie, he didn’t seem to give me the respect I expected… hell, my house, my dress.. nevertheless, no retributional respect seemed to be forthcoming.
I gave him some brief instructions and after a few minutes of manipulation by him, he retorted, “it wasn’t that difficult”…
Without further consideration, I whispered (loudly), “… smart arse!”…
To which he walked away with a swagger that reeked of disdain, but also a smug satisfaction and the implied arrogance of, I beat your piddly challenge… all he lacked was signalling me ”the bird”.

Harold, (hates being called Harry, though smirks when I call him H) is now my primary puzzle evaluator and rc, you can now join the antman as a redoned ant.

Using a 1:1 scaled pattern, it can easily be made out of a “3 stack” using a scroll saw.
For anyone interested and familiar with SketchUp, the model is available here.
For those without SketchUp knowledge, you may be able to get some basic measurements off this,

Otherwise, measurements may be provided to anyone interested… however, I will need the thickness of the material you plan to use to customise sizing.

At one stage I went stupid(er) and produced/distributed so many that I was egged into making a brief video about it.

Keep safe, jocks... and your jocks, safe!

Another fine one Ripper

It’s great when you can mind meddle with the youngsters, they usually don’t figure out what you did until they mature 8^)

Thanks all for taking the time to view… Though it may not be evident to you guys, but these little projects keep my “sanity in check” during the C19 lockdown with my gimpy left arm…
I am now armless as the left is dodgy and the right is occupied with the vino cask.

Now you know why Ripper learnt that phrase… not to order vino.

... and use up alot of words to say stuff…

I hate reading and I suppose my sadism percolates through my posts.

As punishment to all the Yankees that have upset me… I’m stepping up the production line,

Then you missed out on the $1,000 subliminal prize I planted in the blog.

Actually this was/is one of the easier ones and ideal for distribution to the young-uns.
