It’s… a little hard to blog about this map since it’s in Dr. Woodworth’s office and I have only seen it once (when I put it together). But luckily I have a picture, so maybe that will help.
First off, I haven’t done a puzzle since I worked at the YMCA summer camp when I was 16, so just putting it together was an awesome throwback for me. My skills as a puzzlist (yes, I just coined a new word) are to be reckoned with, I am fearsome, speed demon. That being said it took me like 5 minutes to put the (about) 12 pieces on there, I felt like a newborn sloth. Anywho, the puzzle itself is awesome. Every time I see the pictures and hear the stories my classmates have it makes me wish I would have been able to go to Oklahoma. It looks like the pictures were taken at a park or somewhere on campus. Knowing myself, if I had visited the place where the pictures were taken I would have definitely got on the bulls and had someone take pictures of me– bulls are awesome.
The picture on the top right was of some kind of pretty yellow flower… I don’t know anything about flowers or plants really, so I… don’t… know what kind of flower it is.
The picture on the top left reminded me of my trip to Gatlinburg last summer. The picturesque stream babbling over the rocks is almost just like one that I saw in the Mountains of Tennessee. I actually have pictures of the exact stream it reminds me of, it’s just a matter of finding them.
The picture on the bottom right, of a pond (maybe a lake) reminds me of all the times I went fishing with my dad and my oldest brother in my hometown, Prattville. We have a large park with a big pond stocked with some bass and catfish and it was a great place to spend some man time when I was a little kid and it was still new. But, now the pond is dirty and no one really goes fishing there anymore.
All in all, it was an awesome map, and really reminded me of a lot of great stuff from my past, thank you to whoever made it!
I have acquired the map and I didn’t know it, but there is a back side. The first thing that I noticed on the back was the cupcake– cupcakes are delicious. I assume that it is some sort of dessert shop. Just around the corner there is an ice cream cone– more desserts, delicious.
The map on the back honestly doesn’t tell me a whole lot since I’ve never been there. All I really see is that there is a park and then also some streets…. is it part of the campus?
