LAT Thu. 1/6 Gary J. Whitehead
« on: January 06, 2011, 08:40:31 AM »
Some Nerve

Latin quarters?  CASA
Artful dodges   RUSES [“the artful dodger”]
One of a jazz duo?   ZEE
Eldest Younger…   COLE [Cole Younger was an Old West leader of the Younger Bros. gang]
Commit a service infraction   GOAWOL [I thought tennis or tea]
Spread on the table   OLEO
What the mouse did clockwise?   RANUP [“the mouse ran up the clock”]

Had a devil of a time figuring out the theme so I may have to dis-appoint myself as LAT Xword critic.  SAUCE, BRASS, and CHEEK are synonyms for nerve.

French possessive   SES

RATING: ;D ;D Three grins = Excellent: Loved it; Two grins = Good: Enjoyed it; One grin = Satisfactory: A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Unsatisfying: No fun
