NPR Puzzle Posts On Hiatus

Hi, everyone. We've had a tiny medical crisis here at Casa Crossword, so we're putting the blog on hiatus. Not to worry, Ross and I are fine, although I get the unenviable joy of calling the hotshot Venezuelan surgeon tomorrow to see when he can schedule my gallbladder surgery. Not too soon, I hope; I have some deadlines that I would really like to meet.

Until I'm through all that--the deadlines, the surgery, the recovery, etc.--I think it's best if the blog takes a little vacation. I intend to start it up again in a couple of months, so check back in late April, okay?

Meanwhile, Paul won the Pick a Range last week, so we'll contribute $10 to the Fairfield County Community Foundation in his name.

In the meantime, here's a photo of Yorkshire. And, for once, we took it! (Some sculpture park, possibly The Yorkshire Sculpture Park.)

Good luck with your surgery. We'll look forward to your return.

You picked a good time to take a break, since Will may have laid a serious egg this week.

Amen to both of the previous comments, and thanks for the warm glow.

All my thoughts are with you, Magdalen, during your surgery and recovery (and your deadlines, too). I know you'll come through it with flying colors. I think a blog-break is in order. Your good health is too important.

I hope things go well with your deadlines and surgery. I (we all) look forward to your healthy return.

Be well and rest up. Puzzle was a challenge but I am back to one week in a row of correct answers, I believe!

Paul, we've now made a donation to the FCCF for your pick a range win. I couldn't find your email address to send the receipt to ... if you want to see it, let us know where to send it to.

Magdalen, my thoughts and prayers are for a successful surgery and speedy recovery.



Dave said...

Best of luck, Magdalen. I hope all goes well and you have a speedy recover.
