Wow! You did do something very clever with it; you wrote the clues in rhyme. I think it would be hard enough to do so across, but to make it fit down is a stroke of genius.

Great job, Brenda. I will try to do it when I have more time.

Good idea. Now that nobody buys the paper anymore, we need to make sure we get the comics, horoscopes, and puzzles in the blogs.
