Title: Thu., 5/30 Peg Slay
Post by: magus on May 30, 2013, 09:16:33 AM
THEME:   AL added to first word of a phrase yields a different one
Mail carrier's romantic activities?   POSTAL-DATING   
Collage of potpourri bits?   PETAL-PROJECT   
It's a lock   YALE [manufacturer]   
You can get down from them   EIDERS   
Numbers that aren't programmed   ENCORES   
Page with some right angles?   OPED [conservative opinions]   
Peg must be in love with Al because along with the theme words there are five other AL's hidden in this puzzle.  (Or she's a big American League baseball fan.)  She could've had another AL if at 66-Across she used OPAL.   MON = Monday or " ___ Oncle"; APA = Am. Psychiatric Assn.; RAV = sporty car "___-4."   
Spicy condiment   SALSA [it's more a sauce than a condiment --- I'd go with "tomato sauce"]   
RATING:    ;D ;D ;D
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
