Gryptics - 9/25/18

Today's puzzle takes us to California.  I recently came across a variety of crossword that I didn't remember seeing before, so I knew I'd have to do a post about:

Mice to Eat You! - 9/24/18

The title of today's Texas puzzle might make you think you're getting into some kind of horror movie, but actually it's just a spoonerism.  I happened across this theme while searching out "spoon" related puzzles, as I referred to over the weekend.  I found this one to be a fun twist (and a few turns, as you'll see):

Mahlzeit - 9/23/18

Puzzling in languages other than your own can sometimes be difficult, but I was glad I tried out this one from Germany, which I came across in my searches on the theme of "spoons," which I was talking about yesterday.  This puzzle taught me something unexpected, which is always a real treat.  See what you can make of this:

Spoon Collecting - 9/22/18

I found this puzzle after searching a bit on the theme of spoons.  I'm sure I've never purchased a souvenir spoon of my own, but I recently brought home my mother's collection of them from some of her  travels many years ago.  With today's puzzle we can travel ourselves to the U.K. for some:

Can't See the Rabbits for the Trees - 9/21/18

Today's French puzzle really had me going in circles before I managed to figure out what to do with all of those "rabbits."  I kept finding myself checking my work saying "rabbit, rabbit, rabbit ..." and it's nowhere near the first of the month yet.  I only learned about that superstition recently, but I'll have to try saying it first thing in the morning on October 1st and see if it brings me any good luck.
I hope you'll be able to figure out how to work it so you can't see the rabbits for the trees in:

Get Your Kicks - 9/20/18

The choice of today's California cache was prompted by recent events.  I'm not one to kick someone when they're down, so I won't mention any names here, but I couldn't help but have an LOL moment (literally) when reading a coach's reply to a reporter's question about the thought process behind releasing their field goal kicker: "Did you see the game?"  Ouch!  And in case you're wondering, yes, I saw the game.  I hope both the players released this week will find future success somewhere else, and if you happen to be a football fan, that (as long as your team isn't playing against mine) you always:

Salty Dog - 9/19/18

Today's puzzle finds us in Rhode Island.  Somehow I always seem to miss "Talk like a Pirate Day," so I was determined not to do that again this year. See what you can get out of this:
