  41. AJ - thank u for an enjoyable but tough grid. Got all except SURIMI (didnt know this)in under 50 minutes. Many clues were nrain teasers. 😊

    ReplyDelete
  42. I am glad that you could make it Gowri. I am myself not very happy about surimi. After sending the grid, I felt I could have clued it differently.
    Thank you Gowri for finding time for the grid.
