Yes, Les. I simply meant the area in which the Pueblo lived, the Southwest. I used environs because I needed a plural to go with dazzle. I chose Pueblo because of the strong association with the region and because of the ghostly atmosphere of their beautiful settlements- again for surface read.

Sorry- plural to go with overwhelm, but you know what I mean.

Thanks for the explanations guys, some really great clues with too little time to individually mention this week so I'm gonna just announce my favourite which I had earmarked since it was posted and that is the superb surface reading clue from BigbadMarty at Post 8 with:

One employed by wife-beater to alter his statements

Nice cryptic def Marty and here is your prize, a little something that makes me chuckle.

Congrats, BBM2, and thanks for the challenging word(s), Les.

Lots of inventive clues, but I must confess to a soft spot for SteveZodiac's @ 10!

Congrats BBM2, good clue. Thanks for hosting Les40 and an interesting word.

I do agree with ChrisE about Stevezodiac's clue at @ 10.

Stand out BBM2, cheers Les.

@BBM2. A friend of a friend has a 1/4 share of a horse that is entered for races at Carlisle on the 16th and/or Newcastle the 28th (I think) next month. Should it run at Gosforth Park we'll be travelling to and from your fair city by train. If you fancy meeting up for a few beers? I could always catch a later one home. It would be good to put a face with the name.
