Saturday, April 25, 2015 — Cox & Rathvon


Introduction

Here is today's puzzle from Cox and Rathvon.

I have been travelling in the Netherlands for the previous few days and am currently in Belgium. It has taken me a while to figure out how to post Saturday's puzzle.

Time zone differences and Internet access have proven to be challenges -- not to mention trying to do things with an Android tablet that I have never done before (and for which I was not even sure they were designed to do).

  2. Thank you, Falcon, for posting the puzzle. I found this one to be challenging, with more that the usual number of clues that were tough for me to parse. I enjoyed the workout.
