Oh, very nice, Matt! Grid was tougher than Meta, IMO. Happy Valentine's Day, Muggles!
Good luck, fellow Muggles!

Very nice! Thought I had the answer from some of the 10 letters; took me a bit to get the rest of the way to shore. Hendricks please!

Does anyone do the puzzle online with Chrome browser running in Windows 10? The puzzle window doesn't come up for me or when it does I can't enter the letters. I have no problem if I use Firefox.

So far, I've just finished filling in the grid. Nothing jumped out at me as I was filling it and the title isn't speaking to me either....and the clue doesn't mean much to me either......yet

Will come back to it later in the weekend.

Interesting. I can't use Firefox, my preferred browser, but it works in Edge.

I'm on shore. I actually had it half an hour ago but hadn't made the connection which bumped me up to 100% sure.

My sister called me at 3:15. It’s like she doesn’t even know me. In my people before puzzles mindset I chatted for 25 minutes and only read one or two clues during our conversation. I’m on shore now.
On another note I can’t sign into this blog over WiFi. I have to use LTE.
