NYT Spelling Bee 6-16-21 final

Today was the second Spectrum outages. Today they said it was a node issue. Yesterday they said that the issue I was having required a technician to come out to me. Right. That’s gonna happen for a thing that isn’t an issue on my end.

Yesterday I missed BATBOY, BAYOU, BONY, BUYOUT, NANNY, OATY, TABBY, and YUAN.

Meatier Misses

BANYAN: An Indian fig tree whose branches produce aerial roots that later become accessory trunks. A mature tree may cover several acres in this manner.

I know this tree but wanted to share pictures of it. Especially now that I have captions back.

From lahainatown.com.

This banyan tree in Lahaina, Maui, Hawaii covers almost two acres and has 16 trunks. It was planted in 1873.

And they light it each December after 6500 lights are strung through it.

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).
