I couldn’t believe my luck when I discovered that three of my seed list entries — the ones you’ll find on 51-, 55-, and 56-Across in this grid — stacked onto each other. The grid that developed from that stack turned out to have 66 words — yeah, I almost feel like I owe an apology every time I go below 68 because I’m pretty much breaking a promise I made in my About My Puzzles page. I think I’ve only done it twice, and it’s done with the best of intentions — any extra block(s) I put in the middle of this grid just to add word count to a grid would look silly anyway. I wouldn’t do a grid if it necessitated lots of “glue” entries or were not feasible to do by hand, and this grid falls under neither of those conditions.

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 Tuesday!
