That’s 1AC in Monday’s puzzle, Times 8981 in The Australian, an eloquent double-meaning to begin our weekly hurdle race. Can you leap over all six crosswords this week? In fact, I could hazard to say that your greatest challenge may well prove to be today’s offering.
As obstacles go, Monday’s puzzle is steep, but rewarding. Some lovely clues, including 1AC, plus a mix of zoology, literature and crime. Though my own crime could be pride, as I still have four answers to fill, despite claiming this consecutive caper would be a doddle!
If you wish to enlist in this week’s track event, then join us to compare bruises [discreetly] in the Comments, as we hop & skip from today till Saturday.
