Well, I've washed all of the dishes. And still no puzzle.

For the record, the title is "Two by Two", and the instructions are "The answer for this week's contest crossword is an animal."

If it's the right puzzle (there was also a WSJ contest called Two by Two in August 2019), I have my answer.

That's a similar but different meta. (Whew.)

Ashore before the WSJ posted the pdf. Have an appetizing answer. Yum!

Been away for a few weeks.

I'm back, and I'm ashore.

Dishes in the dishwasher; a final glass of wine; and, as LadyBird says, "still no puzzle". My computer is too full of software now, and nothing opens .puz files, so I guess I'll wait for a pdf to appear or for the WSJ to waken. In any case, with all the dinner digesting underway, I'd not be likely to make much progress were the puzzle sitting in front of me -- even though I see some of you (including you, Dplass) have already beached.

It would be nice if we could find a permanent place to post the link to the latest contest puzzle in Across Lite format:
http://tinyurl.com/mugglespuz

Every Thursday, at about 4:07 PM ET, it switches to the new contest puzzle.

In any case, it might be a good URL to bookmark.

As long as I'm here plugging the link, I'll add my name to the list of folks on shore, waiting for a table to be scrubbed clean. Everyone is well spaced, making the beach look like a rookery for masked boobies.
