Fri., 4/4 Kurt Krauss
« on: April 04, 2014, 09:24:19 AM »
THEME:   a word Down intersects with a word Across leaving the word Across misspelled because of the intrusion --- but the two words form a familiar phrase reflecting the fact that on the grid the word Down is "in" the word Across (this made sense to me when I wrote it)
With SADKDLE, working again, aptly   BACK ["back in the saddle": BACK is literally "in" SADDLE]   
With FAMSILY, what red hair often does, aptly   RUNS [ "runs in the family"]   
With BANNK, a financially secure thing, aptly   MONEY ["money in the bank"]   
"LOOK in the MIRROR" and "DROP in the BUCKET" are equally clever   
Fair ones   MAIDENS [I'd use quotation marks around "Fair" since the term is "fair maidens" or "maidens fair."  They are not "fair" in and of themselves.]   
I was confused when I had SADKD.… I knew I was right, yet how could I be?  Then I had FAM_ILY, which also made no sense.  Then I got DEUS, thank God, and BACK made sense.   
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
