My Wordsmith Vantage Point

Happy Friday before Xmas, Party People!

Did you know the crossword puzzle was turning 100 today? Neither did I. Did you know some Brit newspaperman named Arthur Wynne created it? Well, I’m batting 0-2 right along with you.

My nerdy love for crossword and jigsaw puzzles began with my dad, who is an avid player of the game. So, I’d like to give a happy 100th birthday shout out to crossword puzzle. You make my brain hurt. 🙂
