I love it when I find a word for something I didn’t know there was a word for. It’s at 40-Down in this grid. You can bet that any time that I come across a term like that, it’ll find its way into a grid. And, with those relatively closed-off corners, I didn’t have a problem putting it in.

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

Thanks as always to the test solvers for their input.

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

  1. Wonderful seed answer at 5D! I had been waiting a while for that clue-answer combo to appear in a puzzle. I thought it would be a very good one, and I’m glad you did too!


    1. Thanks! As far as I recall, I built the stack first, so I don’t think it was originally a seed… but as soon as I realized that the five-letter word wouldn’t work there, it didn’t take long to realize I could extend it that way. So it was as close to a seed as you can get without actually being one.
