I’ve received a furious message from a reader – who hasn’t solved a single one of the ‘Cluedo’ puzzles yet – to “back off from this nonsense”. Well, I’m not going to “back down” until I’ve set all ten, since I offered a prize (so get “off my back”, guys…) – and so here is the new one (No. 4):
Feeble few days by the sound of it (4)
Remember that they are all ‘fitness related’ in some way, but that may be in the clue or in the answer… not necessarily both!

Couldn’t have put it better myself. Of course, when it all gets too much…
Read a good book with your loved one:
Yes, I’m not backing off either from promoting a certain trio of books celebrating gay love, acrobatic sports and adventures on tour (misadventures too). E-books available. Nor from supporting gay relationships in general, despite the thwarting of the Pope’s wishes at synod this week by a lot of traditionalist Catholic bishops!
Ooops. Getting political/religious. Dangerous territory. Better stop for today! G’night!
