NYT Spelling Bee 6-6-21 final

Last night was fun. It was really nice to be around people again. I did most of this puzzle on the way back last night, and that was convenient.

It allowed me to work on my golf shoes a little today. See, I my good golf shoes had been stolen out of my car years ago. They were Adidas Samba Golf shoes. They don’t make them anymore and haven’t for years. So when I came across the Golfkicks kickstarter, I supported it as a thing that would allow me to get royal blue Adidas Sambas and turn them into golf shoes. I still haven’t found Adidas Sambas in royal blue, but I had attached them to other shoes as a test run prior to the pandemic. The problem was that the nylon screw sheared easily, and that meant the cleat popped off.

After too many had shorn, I contacted the Golfkicks folks, and they sent me a new box. But that was before they started making the screws out of metal.

I installed the new ones into another pair of shoes, but the one time I’d gone to the driving range with them, a cleat popped off. Today I got to reattach one. If it works, I guess I’ll do that when each of the others pops off?

Yesterday I missed LOLLIPOP, LOLLOP, and POMELO.

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).
