Sun., 10/11 Pam Amick Klawitter
« on: October 11, 2015, 10:13:20 AM »
THEME:   /A/ sound substituted for a normal vowel sound in a phrase
   
GOOD ONES:    
title: BRINGING YOUR "A" GAME   
Go flat?   LIE [as in recline]   
It may be gray   AREA   
Maniacal leader?   EGO-   [not Putin]
Bangkok bread   BAHT [what they spend, not eat]   
Quakers in the forest?   ASPENS [the trees quake, I guess]   
Darling girl   WENDY [from Peter Pan whose last name was Darling, and she was]   
Beach shade   TAN [not the shade from an umbrella]   
It means nothing at all   NIL [not the illicit affair]   
Turns up at home?   AT BATS [the jargon is "turns at the plate"]   
Older partner, hopefully   WISER [as in the sadly eschewed concept of "older and wiser"]   
Hot rod   SPIT [at times]   
Persian plaint   MEW [the cat not the cat (man or dudeā€¦)]   
   
BTW:   
Aversion therapy  HATE DETECTOR [I don't believe there is a "height" detector]   
   
"The View" alum Joy   BEHAR [I do believe she has returned]   
   
Emulate the Piper   DERAT [I don't believe this is a word]   
   
Breed of dog?   SLY [as in "sly dog," but he isn't bred and doesn't "breed true" as does my standard poodle, who would be stumped by the breeding process I am sure]   
   
SEIS and DONDE are Spanish only.   
   
   
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

The CrosswordTracker.com site says YESSED has appeared in 12 crosswords, including today's. The clue today was "Agreed with." Other puzzles have used "Okayed" or "Green-lighted." But since when has "yes" been a verb?

Speaking of which.....

During an interview which aired on CBS-TV's 60 Minutes yesterday, Obama was asked if he thought he would win re-election if the Constitution allowed him to seek a third term. His unequivocal answer was "Yes."
