The title of this week's contest is Risky Business by Mike Shenk. The answer to this week's contest crossword is a precarious thing to do.

Thank goodness I saw this one quickly!
BTW, on our Tuesday call I mentioned what a fun time Mark and I had doing a Zoom scavenger hunt and suggested that others might want to try this with their families. Here are the details (on my blog):

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

Happy to be on shore on page 1. Unusual lately.

Later that same night, my girlfriend called and said "Hey, I've got a great idea for our family Christmas Zoom get-together..." Yeah, same idea. So it's fated now; I have to do it...
