NYT Spelling Bee 1-19-21 final

Hello from Day 61 of the current California COVID constant curfew! Trump is the opposite of the original Pokémon. In case you’re unfamiliar with what I mean, there were 151 original Pokémon, and you were supposed to catch ’em all.

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. That includes when I don't finish and have clearly failed. They can be difficult. Also I am not an attorney, and any legal analysis in this blog reflects my interpretation, which means it can be flawed and should not be relied upon for use in legal matters (especially against me).
