I completed most of this well within my target half-hour, then got stuck and after 45 minutes I gave up and resorted to aids to find the answer to my LOI at 27ac. I don't think it would ever have occurred to me.( Collapse )
A zippy start to week - 6:33 yesterday and 6:54 today. This solve took on an X-rated approach starting by completing the NE then SW then up to NW and finally puzzling through the SE. LOI 17dn.
I don't have a COD as there were smiles to be had all over the grid - thanks Mara.
