  2. OMG – that would kill me! Many, many yrs ago, I attempted the Sunday Times (UK) crossword – it drove me crazy. It’s like a puzzle with 5000 equally cut pieces – madness!
    Good Luck though!

  4. I loved this one, Beth; we do crossword puzzles three or four times a week in bed before breakfast over coffee but they are nowhere near as big as that giant one you posted; solving a crossword puzzle is satisfying as finding your way out of a maze 🙂
