Puzzle Notes

Dear friends:

Tonight's puzzle is a yummy 13x9 from Jimmy Peniston, titled "Taste the Rainbow'" We think you'll find this delicious puzzle a real treat!

Jimmy (they/he) is an ecologist who lives in Gainesville, Florida with their two cats: Waffle and Pollywog. Jimmy is a Cancer and doesn't really know what that means, but they like that it is a crab.

Jimmy says: "I'm still amazed that this puzzle 'works'. For me, developing a theme usually requires a lot of time searching wordlists and/or the internet, but for this puzzle the theme answers just popped into my head immediately and happened to be symmetrical. I'm not sure if that says more about the theme or what I spend my time thinking about. I'll let you decide."

Headed to your inbox next week: a hype grid from Kelly!

Be well!
