Puzzle Notes

Greetings Subscribers,

Happy Extended Holiday July 4th Weekend!

Despite the seemingly restrictive title of today's puzzle, please do not apply this to your July 4th celebrations. If you're picnicking, BBQ-ing or ordering out -- please indulge in carbo-licious corn bread, potato skins, pasta salads and red-white-and-blue bagels. We're cutting carbs on paper only. Enjoy life and your Independence Day festivities and fireworks!

Welcome to Week 631 of Crossword Nation. We cordially invite you to solve "We're Cutting Carbs!" as your crosswordy quandary of the week. Happy Solving!

Be well and thank you for supporting our little puzzle shop. Until next time, I remain . . .

Cruciverbally yours and with respect,
