Fresh from The Times of London

Well… not quite.

But CrosSword Devlin (the guy what does the 6000 miles… crossword) does publish his work in other esteemed publications, including (but not necessarily limited to) Cape Town’s Funny Money.

I’m just telling you this so you understand that you’re getting top quality craftsmanship each month; and August’s offering is no exception:

Check out that clue on 1 down: “Waterproof mammal” – I mean, all mammals are intrinsically waterproof, so there’s clearly more thinking you need to do here – but just think of the infamous snowmobile joke and you’ll be well on your way.

Traveling

It’s July 14th – Bastille Day in France (and, I suppose, everywhere else as well), but we’re nowhere near France right now.

We’re traveling home today:

IOM – DUB – DXB – CPT

I have had a word with the 6000 miles… crossword expert, and he’s come up with an appropriately travel-themed crossword for July.

I will present this to you now:

There’s it.

Something to occupy the next 26 hours then. (I hope it doesn’t take me that long.)

Crossword weather

It’s red wine, log fire and crossword weather. And while you probably can’t manage the first two at your desk at 9am, there’s nothing stopping you keeping your brain warm with the official 6000 miles… crossword for June:

(link if you can’t see the puzzle above)

This month’s offering is particularly easy. And if I’m saying that, then it must be REALLY straightforward.

Puzzle

This week has been a struggle. That’s why this month’s 6000 miles… crossword is – as is now becoming traditional – late.

Still. Don’t let that stop you diving in and exercising your grey matter now that it’s actually here.

 

This one’s got birds, salads and some World Cup links.

I knocked it off in fewer minutes than usual. Can you?

Late crossword

I’m going to be in trouble.
This was supposed to be posted over the weekend, but I did other stuff instead.

Here’s a summary of the exciting stuff that I did instead:

Some taxidermy.
Some standing in the South Atlantic Ocean at 9 o’clock at night.

Please click those links. I need the traffic.
The weekend was great fun, but it wasn’t posting this month’s crossword.

(here’s the link if you can’t see that crossword puzzle above).

Good luck. Even I managed to do ok on this one. 🙂

Maybe no-one will notice that it’s a couple of days late.
