SQP091 – Quiptic #6

Hello, cryptic folks!

Since I’ve got a stiff challenge coming tomorrow with the monthly blocked cryptic, I thought I’d do a gentler quiptic appetizer for you today. As usual, there’s a smaller grid, more common words, and most clues use just one cryptic device, but I still try to hide the meanings to make things smooth and entertaining. Also, as usual, there’s a version with “helpers” that tell you which device to look for in each clue!

My gratitude to everyone for coming by, and to the two mighty test solvers Will Eisenberg and Nate Cardin for the help!

Take care, enjoy, and see you tomorrow with the tougher blocked cryptic!
