"Weekly" summary: Episodes 134 to 140

It's been a very delayed set, due to my illness and slowness to recover.  The Tour de France came at a very good time, but even then I've ended up another week behind.  Two episodes were snuck in during the break, one on Tuesday 12 and the other on Wednesday 20.  That rectifies the count at last, putting the Monday episodes back on Monday again.  I'm including all seven games in this "week", rather than splitting out those two episodes.

It's been a rocky patch for me, and I'm not sure how much of that, if any, I can attribute to the illness.  Fortunately I was able to do enough to stay clear of the contestants, but I just wasn't able to come close to matching David and Lily, with the one exception being Thursday's game; there I was fortunate that Lily ran into a rough solving patch as well.

Felix started off by winning a couple of low-scoring games, then lost to Daniel who lost in turn to Samuel.  Samuel could not get past the fourth night, with Brian finishing this section as the champion.

David found all the full monties to be had; Lily ran into a couple of problems with the numbers, but they were tough mixes.  I was far worse.

I continue to struggle to find those letters maxima, and this time my numbers performance was way off.  The reassuring feature was that I solved every conundrum, but there's lots of room for improvement in the other facets.
