I should have the full post available shortly.

  1. Hi Bill,
    Just read your post dedicating your blog to your dad. My love of crosswords came from my mother-in-law. I have fond memories of my daughter sitting beside her and "helping". Doing them always makes me feel close to her.

  2. Hi there, cdg.

    I do find that the love of crosswords seems to run in families and be passed on between generations.

    Apologies for the delay in acknowledging your comment. On vacation and falling behind!
