Today's puzzle is probably on the harder side of medium, just sayin'. But hey, "Black Friday" puzzle on Thanksgiving? Why not? Seems like the holidays are creeping forward in the calendar, so why not duplicate that creep in crosswords. A Halloween puzzle in June? Sign me up! Also, as if I needed an excuse to post Steely Dan. Get ready for future puzzles called "Peg," and "Rikki Don't Lose That Number" for more gratuitous Steely Dan posts.
So me and my girls are going (wait for it) camping (!) shortly. How that'll work with forecasted snow is anyone's guess. Good times, hopefully. But anyway, I'd like to finish this post with big thank you to all of you who make BEQ.com a part of you weekly solving experience. A huge thank you to everyone to my test solvers. I've been blessed with a great life and a dream job.
Share the puzzle. New one on Monday.
