Thanks pal,
I followed the Tour every day live or with highlights (Eurosport) It helps me get to know France. Did not pass close to me this year but I have enjoyed being at stage finishes and starts etc in the past. The star for me was Bradley Wiggins and I was sad that he did not get third.
Back to Mephisto in between betting on Bet365, Cricket (Kent to beat Durham!!) and Speedway (Lakeside to beat Coventry?)
My sincere thanks again. Finished Mephisto 2551 last weekend with no problems - must have been the Bodega in Villeréal last night (very late to bed!!)causing my addled brain today.
Regards
Bob

Finished, Jerry, with your push!!!15D has to be CHECHAQUO althouht I wish I understood all of the wordplay - particularly the CHECH bit in relation to the wording of the clue. Lost on the speedway - won on a cricket double re Kent and Sussex!!
Bon nuit

Morning Bob,
I wish I too got the wordplay in this clue,I can
only see part of check and part of quod.I have to
say since Alan put me onto the AZED,that it is
better than the Mephisto inasmuch that notes to the previous puzzle are given.
Sorry you lost part of your dosh,Cavendish as much
as he can be obnoxious,was the star for me!
Bon chance mon ami,
Jerry
