I'm ashore and I can't believe I got here this fast. Celebrating with a Cuba Libre.

Not sure if it's an easy one or I'm in a zone, but quickly ashore this week. What to do with the rest of my weekend?

Stay well!

On shore! And thANk goodness for that. After several weeks of needing HINts, it feels good to be back in the GAme. I'll have a Stormcloud Birdwalker Blonde (yes, there is such a thing). :D

I’m on the beach! Having a rather large margarita. Celebrating the meta and the fact that my front yard and the street I live on (in St. Pete) are no longer a river! The cabana boy is happy this afternoon!

No inspiration whatsoever. I'm beginning to feel like Charlie Gordon again. I'm 0 for a big number lately.

Fortunately Isaac is serving prosecco with shrimp cocktail.

At least I learnt a new word with 6 across.

I missed my cue . . . but now I'm on shore!
BTW, what an amazing Zoom Muggle conversation we had on Tuesday evening. We covered everything from silliness to psilocybin!

Good luck, fellow Muggles! I'm happy to give nudges, but only if you're still stuck on Sunday.

Made it to shore. I had to stare at this a long while, try several things, but finally it clicked.

Finally got my consecutive solves streak to a place where the last one I missed is now on page two of the board. That one was called "Build Your Brand". Of course now that I have mentioned it, I will probably get stumped next week!
