Good morning all,
I'm conscious of the fact that I haven't made much of a contribution in recent weeks so I was out early this morning to get my copy of the Rado Times and I've been sitting in the garden and, to the accompaniment of the birds in the hedgerows, I've done it.
Before I go any further, I'd just like to say to jazzgirl
that I hope that recent comments [which have me totally perplexed] won't deter you from making your usual invaluable contributions to the RT thread and I'm sure that your friends here will concur.
As you can probably guess either this puzzle is easy or I've been inspired! 17d presented a problem to me because I've never heard of the word. I'll give you a clue - 'local' is a vernacular expression for a pub... The last one to go in was 5d and this one won't present a problem to any guitarists as the answer is contained within the clue.
With best wishes to you all,
