Happy Father's Day to those of the paternal persuasion! Tonight's puzzle marks a milestone for someone who made a fine choice to be a father of three. If you're off opening (or giving) ties and eating cake, we hope you'll come back later to join in the puzzling.

There's a new JulieCrostic below, with the usual rules. New puzzlers can find an explanation of the puzzle type and rules in yesterday's Sunday Puzzle Warm-Up. As always, please keep the subject lines free of spoilers so latecomers can work the puzzle on their own time.

The third Sunday jumped up and bit me this month, but that's a good thing -- it gave the gremlins hardly any time to do their dirty work. Enjoy!
