          Nice! I'm reasonably new to crosswords and your puzzles are my favourites ☺️ this one was fun, managed to solve it without check/reveal and was fun

            I’d like to know which clues you found particularly tricky. I’m guessing the pun in the MAW
            55D MAWAnimal kisser?
            clue was hard to figure out?

            Very nice! Took me some time and a check to finish but I speak english as a second language

              Hey, this was fun! I can do the Universal dailies all week without hints and the LA Times one's early in the week. I found this about that level, which is what I'm currently happy with. Some great clues and nothing that relied too much on specified knowledge. Thanks for sharing!
