Happy Tuesday! Everyone makes mistakes and in opinion, it's best to take them in stride, learn to do better, and then poke fun at ourselves about them. That's why today's Teeny Tuesday is named, "Faults & Fubs" to point out that I did an oopsies on my previous crossword published here on Trash Panda Puzzles.

Don't worry about today's puzzle though, I triple checked the grid and clues, and then I had some awesome help from Norah who test solved the crossword and recommended a few tweaks to the clues. I appreciate the assistance as it helped me get over my funk having such a flub in the last grid. So, while this grid isn't a traditional "meta" crossword like ones seen elsewhere, it's definitely making references to my previous puzzle.
