My wife knows me well. I’ve never really been one to sit for extended periods and work through puzzle books but she recently found a book put together by staff at GCHQ – the British government communications and intelligence office, perhaps better recognized as the code-breakers and spy intelligence folks.

We started doing the puzzles together, sequentially, and let me tell you, I was KILLING the easy section. With help from the clues.

Keep your fingers crossed now, though, because I’m into chapter 2 now and there are no helpful hints from here on in.

Wish me luck. I may be some time.
