Hey everyone, and welcome to Week 98! Today’s puzzle is the last themeless puzzle before this site turns double digits, and I really hope you enjoy it! True, it is a themeless puzzle, but there’s a challenge found within.
My days are numbered, and I’ve already picked my replacement for when I move on from Chris Words. Who did I select? Feel free to let me know at cking.gow(at)gmail.com if I’m doing the right thing. You might need to do some research for the puzzle so you won’t be befuddled, but hopefully a couple of six-letter words can give you some assistance.
As we get really close to the three-digit mark, I want to thank all of you who have been regularly solving my puzzles for nearly three years now. Matt Gaffney once wrote “This guy’s blog is like a neighborhood restaurant that does no publicity or advertising and has no tourist trade, but the same 200 people eat there every week because it’s phenomenal”, and it makes me so incredibly happy that you folks will put up with my need for making puzzles that you have to print out because some cutting assembly is required, or that you have to solve online because there’s links to gifs and Imgur. I so tremendously enjoy writing puzzles for all of you, and I look forward to keep on doing the same thing.
Hey, the Indie 500 is this weekend! Of course, be sure to read my strategy guide before you go, but besides that, I really hope to see you! I’ll be the one wearing the Gamecock hat. It’s going to be a blast, and hopefully, easy as pie!
See you (hopefully very) soon!
