i Cryptic Crossword 1965 Raich

May 26, 2017

Another puzzle that wasn’t too difficult but provided a thoroughly satisfying diversion for this sunny Friday morning. Seven anagrams may be considered a bit over the top by some but I enjoyed them all and with only a couple of obscurities, 21a and 23d, which were clearly clued so as not to hinder my progress it was all over a bit too quickly. Plenty of ticks though 21a was very good and 19d made me smile but

    Over in a flash, but it is an IoS reprint, and was thoroughly enjoyable while it lasted. A gentle week in the i, perhaps because we’re getting reprints from the New Year period when Eimi is probably conscious of time constraints and none too clear heads. 🙂

    Good, wasn’t it? Hardly the red meat Cornick and I have been predicting, but a tasty luncheon nonetheless. Sneaky definitions for common words always go down well with me, so 15ac put a smile on my face.

    Similar experience to yesterday’s, wasn’t it? Just as enjoyable and my only problem was trying to think of a kind of collage to fit 11a. Then I found my glasses.
    Interested to see ‘regularly’ used to indicate odd rather than even letter selection in 17a – unusual, that.
