BD Rating – Difficulty *** – Enjoyment ****
Hola from the Vega Baja to where I returned yesterday from a very wet and windy Cornwall to find a sunny 18C at 1500CET, but this morning it’s raining! My mother is now a nonagenarian, I hadn’t realized before but she must have been about 65 when she had me!
I’m pretty sure this is a RayT puzzle and I’m also pretty sure we’ll get the usual complaints of synonyms which push the envelope a bit and definitions which are a bit on the limit but I really enjoyed it. It may be a tad tricky in places, apologies if the pennies dropping woke you up, but there are enough gimmes to get you in and with a bit of lateral thinking you’ll get there. I’ll be interested to see what the usual suspects have to say about it.
