Crazy day. Very good, trevor. Just knew it was a subtractive anagram, but couldn't see what to subtract from what. Showoff.

Ditto to aristo's post. Well done Trevor.
I really loved the "repressive sea captain" clue and I'm still giggling at the thought :)

jazzgirl: I'm so slow today that "sits on his hands" is the first thing I thought of and it didn't register till I saw it in print in rosie's post. I think it's all the snow.

Hi again!

No problemo, GK.

Well parsed Trevor and well spotted Rossim.

I thought they might have been a bit on the easy side today but I've long learned not to comment in advance.

Here is my working. Really hoppe you enjoyed them.

1. (crypt) talking to(t) = TALKING-TO = ticking-off (Chambers D)

2. subtractive anag (leaves & ‘s cast) of “gap as rural movie” – “up marriage” yields, SALVO = a burst (Chambers Dict)

3. flower = rose; initially travelled = t; reserves = ta; yielding ROSETTA = a town in Northern Egypt.

4. (crypt) SITS ON HIS HANDS

5. anag (when working out = when developing) of “parentage arose” = personae gratae (plu. of persona grata – C.O.D)

I'm still amazed as to how you folk can solve these clues "cold turkey". I'd find it very difficult.

Has anyone heard anything about Tony (who used do such a good job of solving and parsing on this thread)? Hope he's OK.

Thanks a million Jazzy. I'll have a peek in there. I kinda miss him here.


The multiple posts are a bit of a mystery. Key bounce? Who knows! Good night now. Sweet dreams. J xx
