So, a 68-word grid I promised, and a 68-word grid I have delivered. I said it would be a bit uncharacteristic of my usual black square shape… and you’ll see why upon opening it. It’s a pair of quad stacks of nines. Because I want to maintain a minimum or an absence of junk, it was a little harder filling manually than was usual, but I did because I like a challenge. Obviously, everything else stemmed from the quad stacks, but I had a little leeway as the northeast and southwest are somewhat closed off. 15-Across, 63-Across, 34-Down, and 13-Across (of course, I live there and I’ve been to that park many times, so I had to shout it out some time) were my starting points for this grid.

My favorite thing that I learned from this puzzle is in 39-Down. Of all the places I thought it would have come from, Washington, D.C. wouldn’t have been on that list.

As always, I’d like to know, folks… comment is welcome! Come say hello! What did you like? What could I do better?

As always, share this link! Pass it around! New puzzle on Friday!
