Grandad is revolting, according to Times Crossword 9004, or the old man at least. And I take offence, since both the ancient patriarchs in my life were decent old fellas – one a music-loving accountant, and the other a ‘ruler’ at the local newspaper. (Guess whose footsteps I’m tracing more closely?!)
Anyhow, all this ancestral libel is dished out in 1dn of Monday’s Times, a transparent charade clue that will lead you to POP-UP. But that’s the only black-and-white answer you’ll be getting from me this week. Since the forum below is all about solver suport, as we step through the weekload of Times puzzles, without the patent blab of answers.
Unless of course, all players have declared their grids complete, then we can blab and curse and praise away, in the spirit of our forebears. So pop into your newso and get Monday’s Oz, as 9004 looks a lot of fun. And here’s toasting to a fruitful week of unravelling.
