So… I was on my way to, in, and on my way from Paris (France, not Texas) when I finished this grid and clued it. (Don’t worry, I wasn’t looking down at my phone while walking around the Louvre.) It was the upper left corner that was giving me the most trouble, but I figured out that I was doing it all wrong. At the point that I was working on that section, the middle section was unfilled too. I was trying to construct the upper left, and I was getting stacks that worked; however, it just wouldn’t work out in the middle (I’d already established the center answer, of course). But, like an idiot, I kept working on the 11-stack and trying to work into the middle. And it kept getting held up by an unworkable middle. It all broke through for me, unsurprisingly, when I decided to work from the middle and out to the corner. What a surprise… it worked almost immediately!

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!

    1. I thought I liked the clue too, but, ironically enough, it was correctly pointed out to me that his name is Wiley Post, not Wylie. So, I had to change that clue.
