Title: Mon., 6/17 Patti Varol
Post by: magus on June 17, 2013, 09:06:10 AM
THEME:   last words of phrases describe a kind of bucket
One-in-a-lifetime agenda {& theme}   BUCKET-LIST   
AVEC is not used in English   
"Pick someone else, pleeease?"    WHY-ME [the clue is begging but "why me" is not begging but complaining; and while the general rule is to place end punctuation within quotes, an exception is made when the quotation is not a question but the sentence in which the quotation appears is a question.]   
There is a decided 21st Century cast to this puzzle:  DATA-MINING and BUCKET-LIST are terms we would not have seen only a few years ago.    
DATA-MINING could have been part of the theme as there is a "mining bucket."   

TANDEM-BIKE seems redundant.
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
