Puzzle Notes

Dear Subscribers,

Greetings to you all! Today's puzzle is skewed on the "hard" Tuesday side, but once you break the code, all will be clear.

As for the puzzle fill, one entry (4-Down) that might offer a bit of un-Tuesday-ish resistance, but I'm hoping that some of you have visited Versailles or have plans to do so. It's a glorious sight.

Welcome to Week 607 of Crossword Nation. You are cordially invited to solve "Totally Ri-diculous!" as your challenge of the week. 

We wish you a ridiculously-splendid week, and thank you for supporting our little crossword shop!

Until next time, I remain . . .

Cruciverbally yours,
