OK, one down (w/ two errors). I had to walk away from it & come back, tho. Does anyone else subscribe to the premium service w/ the Across Lite app? I signed up for it several years ago & then ended up switching banks, but somehow my membership was never canceled. glitch in the system = free online nyt xwords 4 LYFE (hopefully).

i've been binging on a book of nyt puzzles lately -- but it's way too tempting to check the answer key when i get stumped.

Christ, the lower right corner of today's is driving me batty. I have all but three spaces & am totally stumped & frustrated. Guess it's time to walk away for a moment.

Is that Friday's or Saturday's? This morning it was the left and lower left that were giving me trouble for the longest time.

Friday's. If I have time tomorrow, though, I'll do Saturday's. Saturday Times puzzles are the best - far prefer them to Sundays tbh.

imo this past weekend's puzzles were a rare instance of Friday being more challenging than Saturday.
