Puzzle 81 – “Days and Years”
puz here / pdf here / solution here
Last puzzle here of 2022 is themeless. Seed entries were the three long across entries, with 23-Across and 48-Across pointing obliquely to the title.
Favorite clues here are probably pretty obvious: 5-Down, 11-Down, 52-Down.
Happy holidays and many thanks to everyone who’s spent some time with the crosswords on this site. As always, hope you enjoy. Comments welcomed. Happy solving, yall.
You always throw in a factoid that stuns me, and the Sir Mix-a-Lot answer came from way out in left field. I’m amazed that you come up with these things!
An inexcusable amount of my brainspace being devoted to song lyrics is how I come up with these things, gotta admit.
Solid puzzle. Thanks.
Was stuck for a second in the bottom left because I had idolizing instead of lionizing, but the Lenin clue showed me the way.
Those aha moments are fun, aren’t they?!
Dr. Luter…your crossword puzzles are immensely beyond my cognitive capacity…
Nah, just takes practice. And there’s nothing wrong with occasionally using that Reveal button as you get started. You can do it!
