NYT Spelling Bee 6-20-21 final

Happy Father’s Day! Hooray for family and when we get to see them again.

I’d been working a long time on today’s crossword, and I’m struggling to get this post out before midnight.

An interesting note about the street sweeping rules in Los Angeles is that the switch to first/third or second/fourth whichever day of the week of the month has created something I think is applicable this week. Tomorrow is the third Monday of the month, so street sweeping for the first/third Monday have parking restrictions tomorrow. But Tuesday is the fourth Tuesday of the month, so I think there’s no street sweeping on the same streets the following day.

Yesterday I missed GINGHAM, MAGIC, MAGI, MAGICIAN, MAIM, MAIMING, MICA, MIMIC, MIMING, MINIM, and MINING.

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).
