  2. Hi Falcon,
    Hope you are enjoying your trip - lots of history there. Seems like today's puzzle was pretty much a "write in". More time to bask in the great weather here...
    Cheers,
    MG

    1. Hope the great weather lasts until I get back. It has been cold in Europe and it now appears that it is going to get decidedly wetter.
