THF Weekly Haiku Puzzler #118

This is the solution for the final THF Weekly Haiku Puzzler. Many thanks to Anita Krumins for more than 2 years of bafflement and fun.

Last week’s puzzler:

She drank rum instead of rye most of the time. Cheers!(7)

And its solution:

Anita Krumins

Contestants who got the correct answer were (in order received): Roberta Beary, Polona Oblak, Theresa Cancro, Shrikaanth Krishnamurthy. (And in keeping with the spirit of the puzzle, the first initial of the surnames of our first 4 puzzle solvers spells “bock” . . .) Sandra Simpson, Marietta McGregor.

  1. Alas, all good things must come to an end. Thank you, Anita, for all the fun and head-scratching! I agree, Tuesdays won’t be the same without these puzzlers.

  2. I, too, will miss this. It has been a highlight of my Tuesday mornings for a while now. Thank you, Anita, for coming up with many challenging puzzlers and posting them here.


  3. Heartfelt thanks go to Anita Krumins; Tuesdays won’t be the same without The Haiku Puzzler. For two+ years I’ve looked forward to matching wits with The Puzzler. She shall be missed!
