Assuming that many Quiptic solvers are also Cryptic ones and considering that I won’t be blogging a Cryptic until next week, here are apologies to you for my absence last Thursday. I was in hospital after an emergency, and was incommunicado/out of action. I (rather, my wife on my behalf) just managed to send an e-mail to Gaufrid about my being incapacitated. But, as I learned much later, after it was too late, by one of those coincidences, Gaufrid too was incommunicado/out of action, and couldn’t take appropriate action. I hope things turn out okay for him. Thanks too to Eileen for stepping in. Well, back home now, and back to business for me. Today’s Quiptic was quite straightforward, except the last handful took a bit longer to crack. There were some good surfaces, and some cleverly hidden answers. Thanks Pan.
