Hello from Day 5 of the current California COVID curfew!

It took a little bit of time for me to get the pangram for this spelling bee, but I got there.

About raabidfun

I'm a guy living the #raabidfun lifestyle. I figured I would create a blog about crossword puzzles I do. The idea is to do the NYT crossword and the WSJ crossword daily as much as I can.
