NYT Spelling Bee 4-1-21 final

Happy April Fools Day! I woke up this morning and saw a bunch of free iPads on craigslist that were for an art project. Except that they were never for an art project. The photo was easily found through reverse image search. I sent a text to the person (from a google voice number, of course) to say that it was a decent April Fools joke. There was no reply. And now I’m wondering if the number was even real. OMG. DOUBLE-DUPED. Damn!

Yesterday I missed ABALONE, AEON (always!), BALEEN, BANKABLE, BELLE, KEBAB, KENNEL, KNEEL, LEEK, and NEON.

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).
