Hello everyone. Snow today !! Very early this far south.
51 - no problems, but I am not convinced by my answer to 10 ac - a pesky little four-letterer.
I`ll be interested to see what others say. Mags.

`Morning Rossim. I don`t want to give too much away, as some people won`t have got the RT yet.
The clue is` left hand first for engaging bar`
I have ? A ? L and the answer I`ve got can be read both ways. One way - what a train runs on. I just can`t see where `engaging` fits in.I don`t think such a person is engaging! mags.

Try a 3-letter word for an aqnimal's hand + left = what you're looking for (I didn't know it either) -- certainly not what you've got!

I think left might mean taking away. It goes with the word you have but I won't spoil things. I don't think the reversed word is relevant.

Hi,All.

RT 51 not too terrible and I agree with what greedy kite suggested.

Two RTs within a week. All very nice, but somewhere along the road, we are going find a big black hole. A void with no crossword to fill it. Let's hope Santa brings a book of crosswords to bridge the gap.

Life has been a bit busy lately, so I tend to do only those crosswords with the possibility of a prize at the end. Talking of which, I picked up another Catholic Herald prize the other week. Still awaiting its arrival.

I saw some signs of snow on the mainland yesterday, but happily, none here yet.

Hope all are well.

Best wishes.

P

Awaiting bad weather tomorrow, though it has been lovely today.
