Every so often, I like to find two 15s, or a 15 and a 13, or two 13s from my seed list that share a middle letter and build a grid outward from those; this was one of those grids. Its fairly painless to do grids like this if you arrange it the way I did here, because there’s fairly little room for potential conflict or roadblocks from one corner to another. There’s still plenty of flow from one section to another, but there isn’t much in the design of the grid that could cause problems in multiple sections once you have the two central entries set. Those two entries neatly set off construction of grids like this into quadrants.

Oh, and 21-Across… it’s one of my favorite puns. Sorry, I couldn’t resist.

As always, we’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!
