As many of this blog’s readers know, I have been in Ireland for the past 6 weeks or so, helping care for my mother. Mom finally passed, very peacefully in her sleep, with her three sons around her bed.
Given the circumstances, I didn’t get to today’s puzzle. I run a one-man-show here, so I am sure you can understand the short pause in coverage of the daily puzzles. Mom was always a tough taskmaster, so I’m sure that her spirit will have me back up and running tomorrow or the day after.

This puzzle took me about 50 minutes, but in retrospect it wasn’t all that difficult. Maybe I was just being lazy.
What John said earlier – get back to this blog when you get back to this blog. Deal with more important things. We’ll still be here when you return.
