It's been a long time since I've posted a themeless puzzle. My puzzle creation has definitely slowed as I've working more and I joined a book club which requires more of my spare time. This was just a long-winded way of saying I haven't been putting as much time into improving my themeless skillset. Having said that, I think this one works well. I changed things up a little with the longer down intersecting some longer acrosses in the middle.
I'm posting this one earlier on Monday since I'm working a half-day and then will be celebrating the Independence of the country by watching fireworks and going to Las Vegas.
