I'm not even going to attempt to solve it.
I just checked, and Harris has posted the grid at Water and Waves. Holy cow! Not only did he have no trouble with this one...he posted one of his best times. I guess he and Manny are on the same wavelength.
When I made the decision to return from my short sabbatical, the deal I made with myself was simple...if I couldn't have the puzzle solved and the blog written by 10:00 (assuming I was working the next day), there would be no blog for that night.
I wondered if I'd be able to live with that...and the answer is yes. I'll bet the rest of you will be, too.
I do want to point out one (the only?) gimme for me...37A: 1954 title role for Ava Gardner (Contessa). I guess that makes 28D: Coca-Cola brand (Fanta)...which probably makes 28A: Three-time Masters winner Nick (Faldo).
Okay, no more stabbing at it...off to bed.
This cartoon sums up how I feel tonight...puzzlewise.
See you tomorrow.
