Good luck to all

Ashore, as well. Only slightly less thirsty (though far less deserving of a quaff) than the front-runner. Have a great weekend, all. I'm off to Vermont for my niece's wedding. Cheers!

On shore, hoping this isn't another "pageant".

Well that was as quick and easy as they come, especially for a Gaffney. Time for a Manhattan.

On shore. Nice to be on the sand here as I work through an 0-for-Tuesday in the other parts of meta-world. A Guinness would be nice!

Hmmm ... puzzle solved ... obvious meta answer available ... so why am I reluctant to send it off immediately? Count me as ... treading water just short of the beach ... 😜.

Well. There goes my weekend entertainment :-) I like when I can't get them right away but this was a snap. That's okay. I have shoveling to do.

On shore and off to the gym. Wait: There's a gym on the beach, right?! See everybody later at the 15A.
Good luck, fellow Muggles!

It can't be this easy. Guinness, please, by the foam, where I will keep a toe in the water.

There once was a man named Tim
Who went down a rabbit hole on a whim
He lucked-out and solved the meta
And it was definitely a 100 percenta
So he decided to email it in!
