“Moving Parts”

It’s been nearly three years since my last New York Times Sunday crossword. Way too long! We rectify that oversight with a new puzzle you can find in the 7/20 issue of the Sunday magazine. Expert solvers can avert their eyes from the special instructions — the puzzle will still be solvable, though it might take a little longer to figure out what’s going on. Enjoy!

    Good puzzle, overall, today. Elegant constructing. One bad clue: “In the mood” isn’t “up to it.” Up to it means capable of doing the job. “Up FOR it” would mean in the mood.

    Loved Moving Parts! More fun than I’ve had with a puzzle for ages. Many, many thanks and many happy 103 down.
