Ashore! Lisa and I will have a couple of Old Chaimers, which is a chai-infused bourbon cocktail we had last night at a new cocktail bar in our little downtown, which was delicious. Cheers y’all!

I don’t think you’re being honest if you call that only 3 1/2 stars. I think there is some “solver’s bias” in the rating system... 5+ for me. There is a solvers' bias.

where is Aunt Norma?
Ha! Thank you for asking! She is traveling this weekend so she did not puzzle. We visited her last weekend for her 86th birthday. Unfortunately the three of us together with our great minds could still not solve last weekend’s puzzle.
