B&B TRIP: McGee’s Inn in Ottawa
Crossword Round: “I DO”
She wastes a spin w/ the MDW’s right side. Second, Julia calls up a $700 S but then T for trap. Third, Josh takes a $1,500 R trio, but then L for loss on the Canada trip. Kim follows suit w/ two N’s for the WC, two E’s, a $600 G, two $900 M’s, an I, two O’s to finish off the vowels, and a $600 B. We have…
/ / (R) / / / / (_)
(B)(R)(I)(_)(E) / / (O)
/ / (N) / / / / (_)
/ / (G)(R)(O)(O)(M)(S)(M)(E)(N)
…BRIDE, GROOMSMEN, RING (and) VOWS is correct for $3,250.

PP/Express Round: LIVING THINGS
Josh insta-BANKRUPTs next to TD. Second, Kim comes up w/ a $1K pair of T’s, a $700 S, two E’s, but then R for roadblock. Third in Julia’s direction are a $600 L, an A, two $500 C’s and X while on EXPRESS. She will GO ABOARD.

Round 4: WAYD?
But he can’t capitalize on TD w/ the R. Second for Kim are a $700 T, a $500 S, but then the R recall. Third in Julia’s favor are two FP O’s, three $500 G’s, and three I’s to clean out the vowels, but it’s S-U time…
_ _ _ I _ G / I T / _ _
_ S / I / G O / _ _ O _ G
…w/ a $1,600 FS. That same woman picks the K on her next turn…
_ _ K I N G / I T / _ _

…I’m not really MAKING IT UP AS I GO ALONG — Julia makes the $6,050 solve to complete the comeback.
