My Crossword Puzzle

Since the work-from-home mandate started a few weeks ago, the one thing I miss about going to the office is doing the daily crossword puzzle with coworkers. Last night I decided to try my hand at creating one myself. I’m not sure how it will print from here (it wasn’t easy getting it on the website), but hopefully someone will give it a try (or even just write your answers down). I will post the answers in a day or two.
