Back in action after back inaction, which is what prompted the disappearance of an update a fortnight ago. I really should have lifted the bags of giraffe dung more carefully. (There’s a local outfit that makes compost using the stuff every zoo has too much of – they have a marvellous line about it being ‘endangered faeces’.) I’m not really supposed to sit down for extended periods either, so I shall be brief.
The choice of puzzle this time was prompted by a discussion on fifteensquared about a recent puzzle (I won’t say which), which led me to think of my puzzles whose ideas originated from the same source. This one came to mind because of an unusual feature of the perimeter quotation.
The next update will appear during a weekend when I have a couple of extra puzzles: there’s a Times Jumbo on 29 November, and the EV the following day.
Now I must go and move around for a while.
