LAT Sun. 4/1 Robin Stears
« on: April 01, 2012, 09:19:08 AM »
Good Title: Front Money  [and did you notice the dollar sign in the grid?]

Good Ones:
Horse play   EQQUS [not really about horses, of course]

Somme one   UNE

Preschool group?   ROE [fish eggs will hatch and swim in a group]

Father of Henry II   EDSEL [not the king; the magnate]

Word whose last two letters are an example of it   DIGRAPH

Beethoven’s fifth?   SOL [do, re, mi…]

Theme: first word of phrase can precede the word money --- and make cents: PLAY, SMART, etc

By the Way:
Congats. to Robin who clued ACER properly.  Does he read this space?

Artwork in a cliched come-on   ETCHINGS [wow that’s an oldie --- wonder how many young ladies would be enticed to a man’s apartment to see his etchings, or if they even know what etchings are?  Perhaps APU cells would be more au courant.]

Who knew?:
EDNA was Tract Turnblad’s mother, or Tracy Turnblad for that matter.

APU operated Kwik-E-Mart, or that the was a Kwik-E-Mart.

Fear Street was written by RLSTINE, or that either existed.  And crossed by READYROOM, whatever that is, makes it a bit challenging.

BOTREE is a sacred fig

Some Nits to Pick:
Data   INFO [yes, but couldn’t anything be information: words, pictures, a tree]
ARPA is Italian
MIRA is Spanish

RATING:   ;D ;D Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
