Jerry,

Good morning! Lovely puzzle! I have had a look around and DATE is all I can offer, and a poor offering at that.

Good luck

Royston

Morning to you Royston,
I have the bottom half of this done,but am really
struggling with the top. I am not sure about
date,bur will have another look later in the day.
All the best my friend.
Jerry.
p.s. Do you get annoyed with people who don't
acknowledge or send a note of thanks.

Jerry,

Yes I do often. As you know it sometimes takes several books/tools (and the commensurate time also!)to solve a problem so it is nice when people appreciate it!

Kindest regards

Royston

Hi Don & Mollie,
Thank you both for the trouble,BALL would be
more like roly-poly. What is 1d?
Kind regards
Jerry

Now realise it is BAEL - a fruit, BARREL with core RR removed.

BIOGS for 1d

Thank you Don,
I think 1d is as amusing as 28a. I have only been
doing the Mephisto since March,and I think it is
a source of v amusing answers! I now have to
finish the top right corner.
Regards,
Jerry
