Happy American Independence Day, puzzlers!

UPDATE @ 1:19 PM: I FORGOT TO ACTUALLY POST THIS UNTIL NOW I’M SO SORRY GAH

To those of you who are coming here after solving my New York Times puzzle today, welcome! And to those of you that have been waiting a whole week for me to post my latest offering, welcome back, and thank you for your patience!

I figured it would be fun to post today rather than last Monday, because 1) today IS July 4th, and 2) having multiple puzzles is always nice, especially in different outlets. If you solved today’s NYT puzzle and were wondering why that particular themeless was published today, I’m scratching my head wondering the same thing (although am very appreciative nonetheless). So that’s what today’s offering here is for: a nice, easier puzzle that kinda sorta maybe relates-ish to today’s U.S. holiday. As simple as the theme is, it took quite a while to flesh out in grid form…the possibilities were much more limited than they seemed. I guess I’ll leave the rest to you–I’ve spoiled enough as it is!

Oh, and if you’re here normally and haven’t solved today’s NYT yet…check it out! Enjoy, folks!

Sincerely,

The Grid Kid
