That delay had me worried. I'm already pretty wrapped up in these puzzles -- I'll DEPEND on them now.

Ashore!

With a Beatles song running through my head!

Done and done. Now, with a stunning depletion of entertainment options this weekend, time to get outside and/or learn how to balance a Guinness while reading a real book!

Cheers to all and Happy St Patrick's Day. Guinness and Jamesons will cure what ails you!
'tis... A lovely day for a Guinness!

Solved and waiting on Mgwcc tomorrow. I have six fireball books for winning the contest a year or so ago. I may have to break them out while we stay at home more than ever!
