I'm away travelling, so Sunday Puzzle is on re-runs. But these are truly classic re-runs: the very earliest JulieCrostics posted on Daily Kos as constructed by Julie Waters herself.
If you're not familiar with what JulieCrostics are and how they work you can find a complete explanation, along with introductory puzzles and examples of completed puzzles, in our companion series Sunday Puzzle Warm-Up.
Julie loved music and was an accomplished musician. In her honor Sunday Puzzle Warm-Up has been doing a Songfest Celebration this summer. Each week you get a new puzzle, the answer to which is the title of a noteworthy song, plus you get a YouTube clip of the song featured in the previous week's puzzle. So even if don't need any puzzles to practice on, you might still enjoy dropping by.
Okay, enough talk from me. Are you ready to match wits with Julie? If so, come on down!
