NYT Spelling Bee 7-4-21 final

Happy Independence Day!!! It’s now 12:15 am on July 4, and I’ve finished the Spelling Bee. I knew I wouldn’t have time today–and there may be stories from today that I’ll share later–but I did what I could to get this out almost 24 hours from now. I hope I’m back home by now, but just in case I’m not, this is scheduled to go out at normal time.

Yesterday I missed ADDENDA, APNEA, INDIE, INNIE, NAAN, NADA, NAIAD, NANNIED, NEAP, NINEPIN, NIPPED, NIXED, PANINI, PEND, PENDED, and PENNE.

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).
