Thanks!

Do the dates 4, 5, & 11 colored in Blue and Red on Saturday/Sunday hold a clue to the answer of this?

RE: Bone

I can't help you. I'm no good at solving these things. You might see if Nav will PM you a hint. He has no trouble with these things.

He's probably right, you can't take the images literally. Problem is, I'm a literal kind of guy. :D

Shapley,
I have difficulty with these as I don't think in the "Abstract".....

Ugh..........

There's still time..... Just have to change the old thought process....

:D

Umm... actually I have put down some clues in my last post. I think italicizing words may give it away sooner. So read, re-read and re-re-read till something clicks! ;)

I think it means they are holidays, usually. :wink:

They have nothing to do with the answer. :)

I'm also not strong with "Abstract". :evil:

The problem is I can't stop thinking about this puzzle, and it's driving me :crazy:

I don't sweat it.

The 'clues' I've been able to gather so far, and these may or may not be correct, include:

Phi
Calender
Week
11
key
color
copy
paper
white
D
August

I'm afraid I don't know any of the Gentlemen in the pictures, or the animal after the Phi.

Off-topic: Shap, is that you wearing that 'I-shirt' in the photo TM posted?

The animal is a Cat (or a Kitten).

And that sombrero doesn't reveal much of it either. :D

Since TM said that it was "your picture," and judging your height from the other pic, I thought it was you.

Perhaps the cat (kitten) is only a symbol to mean the composer had cats as pets? :|
