Facile - 9/23/21

Today's puzzle takes us to France.  Last week I was bemoaning all the little things that had gone wrong on Wednesday.  So, this week I'll list the little things that went right today:  I did not oversleep despite forgetting to plug my phone in and it going dead so my alarm couldn't go off.  I did not knock off the door on the car next to me when it sprang wide open right into the parking space I was driving into (it just left a little red paint on my blue car).  And since I was so late eating my lunch I did not have to go to class covered in yogurt when this happened:

I'm sure that next Wednesday even more things will go right. 😂 That said, this was just the kind of puzzle I was interested in solving this evening:

Mirrorball - 9/21/20

Today's puzzle takes us back to downstate New York.  In case you missed it last night, it was the start of the 30th season of Dancing With the Stars.  I find it pretty amazing that folks are still chasing after that:

SNAFU - 9/16/21

Today's Massachusetts puzzle is one I first featured back in 2012.  It's pretty much the best one I could think of to describe my Wednesday.  No big disasters, just constant mix-ups and technical difficulties all day long. This pretty much sums it up:

The History of What? - 9/15/21

Today's new California puzzle actually caught my eye because I misread the title.  I thought it said, "The History of Being Short," which I figured was something I'd know a lot about.  I had a pretty good chuckle when I realized it actually said:

Remembering 9-11-01 - 9/11/21

I first featured today's Kentucky puzzle back in 2016, the 15th anniversary of 9/11/01. It's hard to wrap my head around the fact that it's now been 20 years since that terrible day. My daughter had just started Kindergarten and I was spending the morning as a parent helper at my son's nursery school.  I'm sure all of us who are old enough today will be:

Fall Magic - 9/5/21

Today's puzzle takes us to Canada's Alberta province.  In the last couple of days I spotted the first red maple leaf on the ground, and the Autumn crocuses in our front bed have started blooming.  Even though the days are getting shorter and the nights are getting cooler, the arrival of those little flowers always catches me by surprise. Fall is the undoubtedly the prettiest season here in central New York, but I have mixed feelings about it due to the fact that winter is just around the corner.  I'll have to do my best to just focus on the Finger Lakes':
