NYT Spelling Bee 3-13-21 final

The clocks change tonight! Back when work meant showing up in at the office or at a client site, this was always a scary time for me because waking up even a little late to go to a place half 45 minutes away could be disastrous. But now it’s all remote, so it’s not so bad.

Yesterday I missed VELVET, though I could have sworn I put that in.

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).
