I’m back! I think this is the longest I have ever ignored you fine people. I could go through the country song lyrics that have described the last month – car stolen, dog hospitalized, blah blah. But it’s all good now. I was driving a 14-year-old Prius with 169,000 miles on it and would have driven it into the ground. Thieves (and 2020) had other plans for me. Ok 2020. You took my car. Well-played. Here is my reply:
The fine folks at BMW of Catonsville were only too happy to provide me with this used beauty and to remind me what it is to have a car payment again. Lemonade out of lemons, I say.
In any case, having regained something of my center, I constructed a puzzle for the first time in a while. I hope you enjoy it, and I wish all of you good health and happiness during this holiday season and my best hopes for a promising new year. I’ll see you back here soon. Take care.
