I'm not sure I understand the fascination with the letter K
, but Monday's puzzle was full of them as is today's. Other than the 8 K's

I wonder how many solvers first had CHECKER for JOEYDEE as a peppermint twister. Joey Dee and the Starlighters starred at the Peppermint Lounge in the '60's. Don't know how I remembered that.
Crossing HOECAKE with PAPAWS was tough for me, not having heard of either term.
