I //heart// the Sunday NYTimes Crossword. Been doing it for years, and I think all told, I've finished like.... three in my entire history of doing 'em.
Dad and I would work them together, passing them back and forth. He'd fill in some and say with more than a hint of jest: "I left you all the easy ones."
Heh. Right, Dad.....
When I retire from my church work and have Sunday mornings free, I want to be able to get the SNYTCP each weekend, pad out to a porch in my slippers, sink down in a soft chair, have a canine companion schlumpf down beside me and sigh heavily, sip from a hot mug of black coffee, and just scritch in answers.
