« on: June 13, 2015, 08:50:15 AM »
THEME:   none, but crossed fifteens at center
   
GOOD ONES:    
Kennel pick up area   NAPE [ clue is good and hard:  bitches pick up their pups by the back of the neck]   
Challenging pitch   HIGH C [I thought baseball]   
One hanging out in a coll. office?   PHD [is that the person or the degree hanging on the wall?]   
   
BTW:   
Reaction to excessive attention to detail   BUT WHO'S COUNTING   [tin earism:  "but who's counting" is an ironic statement wherein the speaker is noticing the number --- there is no suggestion of excess and is spoken less often as a reaction than as a comment engendered by the speaker himself]   
   
Like Zitronen   SAUER [this entry is a lemon --- and German]   
   
   
RATING: ;D ;D   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun

I, too, though "Challenging pitch" would refer to a type of pitch thrown in a baseball game. I know very little about music. I'm much like comedian Junior Simples, who once said, "The only stringed instrument I can play is a yo-yo." But the "challenging pitch" was HIGHC. High C, also known as Top C, Soprano C and C6, is a musical note. In music, is a pitch the same as a note? 

I thought that ZITRONEN, which is "sauer," might be a brand of bitter-tasting German liquor. It isn't. The word is the plural of "Zitrone," which means "lemon." Here is an explanation of why nouns in the German language are capitalized:

I believe note and pitch are different to musicians (connotation) but not to lexicographers (denotation).
