Welcome to Follow-Up Friday!
Follow-Up Friday is an opportunity to look back on past posts and puzzly topics. Whether we’re updating you with new developments, providing answers to a previously posted brain teaser or puzzle, or simply revisiting a subject with a fresh perspective, Follow-Up Friday lets us look back and look forward.
In today’s post, I’ve got the answers to last Friday’s pre-ACPT edition of the View a Clue game!
