Think there's a mistake in there--or at least an expression I've never heard of. Lost tons of letters, so I blew through the rest in a fit of semi-pique

Would have enjoyed it otherwise, I think...

I did the same. It's not as if I don't know what alliteration means either.

I'm with Asor. Blew a bunch on the second puzzle.
If that wasn't an error I'm done for the month. See ya'll
in April.

I enjoyed it; I'm not sure it was a classical alliteration puzzle but so be it.

That was strange!

For some reason, Barry, I'm not surprized you enjoyed it.

Well, I loved it! I really enjoyed reading my phrases over and over once I had solved them. Very clever and lots of fun! Thank you!

OK, here's the letter-chomping, pink-screening issue I had: Catching crags? Seriously? Crags?? Whatever happened to catching craBs when paddling a canoe on a creek? (Although, come to think of it, it's much easier to catch crabs when in a rowboat or scull...)

the forty winks clue referred to taming TI_S.....took me a long while to think of tics here for some reason.

What does "taming tics" have to do with "four winks"?

Forty winks (Four T) winks
Taming tics takes tenacity
There are lots of tics, but the most common one is that annoying twitching of your eye, hence winks. And if you have ever experienced it you recognize that they are not easy to get rid of. Perhaps taming twitches would have been easier, but it just did not sound as smooth as taming tics.

Not to beat a rapidly succumbing horse, there really such a thing as catching crags?

Smaug, you want to handle that one?
