I'd convinced myself that 2 was RING-BACK (it saves you having to dial again, at least!)
5 I thought the non-PC "red-skin", though I couldn't explain the "reds" bit.
Thanks for a challenging set of clues, jolan. I should have looked for the subtractive anagram!

Thanks Jolan.
Igot #2 ok but I also thought #5 was redskin. I was sure #4 was cue but the catch bit caught me out again.
BTW We have lots of olearias down here on the south coast.

Oh - I had guessed SECOND NATURE, but I'm still not sure why "relocate" is "second". Is it in the sense "seconded to"?

Crocodile = queue = cue....excellent should have looked at Chambers more closely....very clever Jolan. Well done to those who got that one as well.

Hi again friends, Just got home, Glad to see there's no need for me to show my working as well covered by Ab and Tony. Hard luck on a full-house Andy (second = to relocate).

Thanks to everyone who makes my setting so worthwhile (that's where I get my fun).

Lovely to hear, Rossim, that olearia flourish on the S coast (of the UK I presume). I used the dictionary def.

Well done all. We must try to capture a Nessie for Ari sometime. We'll point it Westward and 'slap' it on its way.

Off now to gorge !!!

Bless all

John

Excellent as always, Jolan.
I'm still recovering from Thanksgiving dinner; I doubt that I outdid you though.

By the way, we have our own lake monster: Champie, in Lake Champlain (between Vermont and NY).
