COLLIOURE'S LOSING THE HANDLE

I was really looking forward to this one. I was definitely not disappointed!

There was one I didn't understand, but the other four were great. Good WP!

Most enjoyable! Challenging, creative and impossible to Google. Good job!

Loved the idea, but not too happy with unnecessary difficult words. Great concept.

If this is your first time, we have learned by the school of hard knocks that putting in words just to make it hard may not make for a really fun puzzle.

All in all, excellent.

That was awesome! I didn't see any hard words, but cleverly done so I had to think.

More please.

Exceptionally hard by virtue of being so well thought out.
A lot of fun all round. More please!

Thank you for your kind remarks on my maiden flight. I am indebted to Sploofusgenie, my wonderful and ultra-patient editor, who found one major error and would not let me use any phrases with alternative spellings of the key word.

(Beth, I did not deliberately choose any difficult words. One pair came to me by accident and I snatched them up given all the modern day discussion about that product)

In any case I already have 10 more phrases in hand to polish and to clue up for another one of these in the fall.

I was pleasantly surprised, not pompous at all. Well done.

Nice job Collioure!

Man, that "mookeys grounder" was my very first one. Busted my chops. It was all gravy after that one.

I meant to complain tha Buckner gets such a bad rap...Mookie claims he would have beaten Buckner to the bag anyway...

And the game WAS tied in extra innings.Who's to say the Mets would not have won even if the out had been recorded?

I got the "mookeys grounder" thing first up too. As a Brit it still looks like a foreign language to me.
