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.
