And that's the way the holiday has been, really.
When Elaine came down (they had done two laps of the running track, which is more than one kilometer, in broiling heat too) and we all settled into our usual sunny places, the crosswords started. Actually they have been going for a few days. Every day in the library sheets of paper with a Sudoko on one side and a Crossword Puzzle on the ...
