i Cryptic Crossword 966 Dac

March 15th 2014

I’ve come to think of Dac as Crosswordland’s Mr Smooth, and here he was pure velvet, as well as effortlessly slipping in a classic Nina – a personal message to his son, Nicholas and prospective daughter-in-law Kay on the day of their marriage back in 2009.    For the bit of the Nina that went ‘TO KAY’ we had a very unusual thing indeed; a clue which has the definition neither at one end nor the other:  ‘Time to  have fine wine drinking woman’s health thus?’

However my COD goes to 19ac:

First day of month – about right time for a wedding (8)

And here’s the original blog which is complete: http://www.fifteensquared.net/2009/05/01/independent-7033-by-dac/
