Sat., 1/25 Barry C. Silk

(1/1)

magus:
THEME:   none, but four triples
   
GOOD ONES:    
Pitcher of milk?   ELSIE [a cow used sell Borden products --- at least 70 years ago!]   
Fall preceder   TRIP   
Letters from Greece   ZETAS   
Letters from Lancaster   ZEDS   
Chest protectors   BIBS   
Sign of possession   APOSTROPHE [not requiring an exorcism]   
   
BTW:   
With it   HEP [actually the clue needs "once" otherwise it shows the opposite]   
   
Pass a second time in a race   RELAP [I am familiar with LAP as a verb but RELAP is doubtful]   
   
Festival d'___ de Quebec: annual music event   ETE [Finally an acceptable clue for this Xword staple!    Of course, I never heard of it but I'm so glad it exists and Barry cared enough to find it.]   
   
I prefer themes, but this one was both clever and challenging.
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
