    Dear Keith,

    My mother used to work crossword puzzles all the time. I’m not very good at them. Love your dialogue and your graphic. 😀

    Shalom,

    Rochelle

      Thanks so much Rochelle. I’m ok with general knowledge ones but haven’t a clue when it comes to cryptic clues!

    I totally suck at crossword puzzles, to be honest. Unless they are really, REALLY simple 😉
    Love this! You do make me laugh, Keith.
