Cross Words

What to work on today?

Ignore the Galapagos, it’s out of our jurisdiction

I have been saving the LA Times and NY Times Saturday and Sunday crossword puzzles from the print copy to do when I have time and focus. I may be in August now. I tried doing one from the digital version of the paper on my phone, but it didn’t have the same feel (and for some reason the NY Times version gets cut off on the right, unless you have chosen a word that goes to the edge. It’s an acknowledged issue, but not corrected.)

I don’t know how manatees came to be part of our family friends. We live a long way from where they live, but they are a favorite animal.

My father actually saw the Hindenburg airship the day before it went down, or is it up.

These two things join in our family’s lexicon. “Oh the humanity!,” became, “Oh, the huge manatee.”

So Ashlan just had to share this gem

I don’t know which crossword this is, but it made me laugh.

And in other news for those familiar with Seattle icons.

On the first leg to MOHAI

    John and I enjoyed our trip to MOHAI a few years ago. I would like to get more into crosswords but am easily frustrated.

      I am not a fast crossword puzzler. I will start, read a lot of the clues, filling in what I can. It’s during the second look that more are figured. I think my brain silently works through ideas in between.
