NYT Spelling Bee 4-24-21 final

I didn’t get to genius tonight. I gave up, which you know by now is rare for me. Today I happened upon a plant. I’ll share a picture later.

Yesterday I missed CALLOW, CANAL, CANCEL, COLONEL, CONCEAL, LOCO, and NONLOCAL.

Meatier Misses

COLCANNON: An Irish and Scottish dish of cabbage and potatoes boiled and pounded.
COLLEEN: An Irish term for a girl or young woman.
COWL: A large loose hood, especially one forming part of a monk’s habit.

Oh! Remember that post from the other day? WEAL and WALE come from the same thing.

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).
