Toes in the sand (and thankful for a warm, albeit virtual, beach… we’re looking at a high of 55 for the next week or so); Guinness me please!

Got it.

Edit: I have to admit that this was not a clean kill. I used Google for something, then confused myself with something else, then had the "aha" moment but this all happened in the span of 3 minutes.

On the beach! 🏖 🍹 with a pomegranate margarita saved from the Cinco de Mayo batch.

Enjoyed the puzzle!

I liked that one. Count me ashore, please, with a day late/dollar short Cinco de Mayo margarita. (With apologies for echoing Beth in our near-simultaneous posts.)

Clever, and a breeze, at least compared to some other Gaffney's. Now luxuriating in the tropical breeze on the beach.
