Puzzle 31 – “Just Start Talking at the Sound of the Tone”
It will come as no surprise to anyone who knows me well that 1-Across was the seed entry for this themeless puzzle. It is one of my very favorite things (and the source of this puzzle’s title), and if you’re not familiar, I invite you to check it out.
I dig this grid a lot, particularly the quite open center.
Favorite clues: 17-Across, 41-Across, 4-Down, 14-Down, and 29-Down.
Yes, this is my third puzzle here with an Elvis Costello reference. It happens.
Happy solving, friends. Comments always welcome.
