NYT Spelling Bee 6-17-21 final

I went back to learning Python yesterday after a hiatus of longer than I’d like to admit. I stared to look some things up on google, and then the screen tipped back, and google asked me if I wanted to play. I was invited to google foobar! I haven’t yet started it because I want to get through the things I’m trying to get through, but I think it pretty cool. My dad has been talking about how google invites him to foobar every so often, so finally I got to tell him that it happened to me, too.

Also did anyone else notice the change to the Spelling Bee in the android app?

Yesterday I missed ARIDITY, ARTY, CACTI, DATA, DIDACT, DIDACTIC, DRAT, TARRY, TARTAR, and TRAY.

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).
