Day #98 Puzzle Solved!

What is a 30 minute walk with dog, accompanied by friend, Catherine; coffee; and the NYTimes Crossword?

Answer: A perfect summer morning.

What is even more perfect?

Solving that crossword.

redcrossgridThis morning the puzzle surprised us for two reasons:

  1. Despite being July 4th, there were no July 4th references;
  2. We solved a Friday puzzle in under 30 minutes.

We did check with Rex Parker’s blog to see our solution was correct  (had to change “bra” to “boa” for burlesque staple). His blog is a highly entertaining review of clues and cultural references for each puzzle. His review is way for us to measure our ability to solve the puzzle against the “63rd Greatest Crossword Solver in the Universe!”

His rating for today? Easy.
Our rating? Perfect.
