Six Letter Word for Resort Operation

(Thursday, 29 January 2009) by Michele Cozzens

crossword.jpgMerle Reagle’s crossword puzzle today offered the following clue for 46 DOWN: “Classic Beatles song on Revolver.” Can you name it? Can you?

Here’s a hint: It’s six letters, begins with a TAX and ends with a MAN.

I work a crossword puzzle nearly everyday, but Reagle’s, which comes in the Arizona Daily Star every Thursday, is always my favorite. It’s not five-star difficult like the NY Times puzzle can sometimes be and it’s not three-star fodder like the daily in USA Today. It’s baby bear’s just right porridge, just the right amount of brain stimulation to start my day. It’s every bit as good as a latte with chocolate sprinkles on top!

Today, however, it served as a reminder. With nearly 140 clues, there’s bound to be at least one that has a coincidental relevance to my daily life—business or personal—but I like to think the crosswords speak to me personally. So, after filling in the letters for “TAXMAN,” I went to my office and grabbed my property tax bills and my checkbook. They’re due on January 31, two days from now, which should give the US Postal service enough time to get my payment from the Southwest Desert to the great Northwoods, especially if one considers the five-day grace period. Gee, I hope there’s not an ice storm planning to hold things up.

Thanks to all of you who sent in your summer deposits. You made it possible for us to keep this resort going . . . at least until July.
