Do You Know Where Your Towel Is?
No, my towel isn't behind the irises. The iris is just for pretty - it's a hardy native iris from Pennsylvania, and it knows how to make deer leave it alone. The towel is in my jeans pocket. Remember, I used a dehydrated one this year. Handy for carrying around. We hope you enjoyed your Towel Day, wherever you were. Superfrenchie was lying on a French beach, safely removed from snarky Editors and their bad jokes. We will show you some more towels if you hang around long enough.
Towel Day is every day in my hallway.

Meet News: No, that isn't news about meat. Nor are we inviting you to meet the news – we've done that with the quiz. Amy Pawloski reminded us to remind you that 'the first Meet of the summer is less than 2 months away.' If you want information about this summer's meets, please consult pages on the London, Manchester, and Edinburgh doings. Plan to make it, if you can: there will no doubt be beer, particularly if Pastey's around. And there will definitely be a good time to be had.
Today my towel and I went for a 5 mile run at lunch time (I feel I did all the work and carried the towel all the way), it was a warm 25°C / 77° F with 50% humidity. This is what I looked like at the end – hot, sweaty, tired and exhausted. So unlikely to make a good first impression to people who don’t know what I look like.
Create News: 1 June will be upon us before the next issue. So remember to check the new Create Challenge coming up. It's called 'Changing the Past, One Step at a Time', and yes, we know that's weird. But you keep solving all the problems, and we're running out of worlds to conquer. Essentially, we want you to figure out what one thing you could change, and how it would have made the world different. (Don't everybody talk about elections, please.) You'll see what we mean, and we suspect we'll get some fun out of this challenge. At least, judging by FWR's illustration, we will. . .
So, I think I've remembered to tell you everything everybody told me to tell you. Oh, wait: Robbie Stamp wanted me to tell you that thanks to you, h2g2 is 'an oasis of good things on the internet.' His words. So now you are told, and I can shut up and let you read. As usual, we have no 'like' buttons, but you can leave comments, captions, and witty guesses to the puzzles.
Have a wonderful week out there in the world, you Hitchhikers!
