Dear Maisiep and Wilhemina,

Got 81, thanks. Still baffled by 96 (can't find a SUITABLE word starting with the first half of the religious man, and the link to the telephone); also 50 is a pain.

I can't help feeling there are two answers out there ofr 96 - mine is an obscure alternative spelling for a more well known word, which only seems to be in Chambers, but fits the clue.

For 79, thanks for hints - I can see an answer which fits residue in a glass and extremities, but why '...but this is all there is'?

Is anyone else unhappy with 'On one's toes' for 80? It seems too imprecise for such pernickety setters!

In spite of clues still struggling on 79. Looked through thesaurus but cannot find anything to fit. And on 96 cannot find anything to do with a telephone or which starts with chap. Still cannot manage 88. Is the answer to 49 cobblers? Clues please and to 62. I have the answer to 50 as The Red Shoes but cannot justify it cryptically. Must be getting jaded with these last few.
