Listener 4436 Clean-up Operation by Aragon IP: 22.214.171.124 Posted on February 25, 2017 at 07:31:55 AM by Derek Harrison
I was delighted to see Aragon's name and I wasn't disappointed. There was a lot in this puzzle. I had to read the preamble several times and it was only at the very end that it all made sense.
There were some excellent clues although I am still wondering about the definition - "bit, working?" and whether I should have coloured the doorstep (I coloured the letters of doorstep).
The message given by the dropped letters mystified me for a while but when I worked it out I was amazed by the complexity of the grid. There was the postman on his way after stepping on the doorstep to drop the letter. There were the places where the paint had been cleaned up from his footsteps and now we had the warning message for future visitors. We even had the colour of the paint!
