NYT Spelling Bee 5-10-21 final

I have Channel 9 news on in the background, and they can’t get enough of this clip of the Malibu balcony falling. They just play the falling part over and over and over.

KCAL9 and CBS2 are sister stations.

It has really made Calah and me rethink our wedding plans. Now sketchy balconies in Malibu are out.

And now that you bring up Calah, her first contribution to the weekly woodworking blog posts drops tomorrow at 10am. It’s the first installment of a short series, and it’s worth reading.

Yesterday I missed BILLION, BILLOW, BLOB, BLOBBING, BOGGLING, GOBLIN, IGLOO, LION, LOGIN, LOIN, NIBBLING, NONILLION, OBLIGING, OOLONG, and WILLOW.

Meatier Misses

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).
