Nov mini cryptic 13

· By BJ · Published 7 months ago

This Nov initiative has had a good run.
Life got in the way of my setting a grid yesterday; and the week coming's ramping up to the point where I think I need to temporarily call it here.
I hope that you've all enjoyed trying to solve these as much as I've tried to write them; and I'll definitely try continue tickling along with a few other grids I have ideas for.
1A Def Teen Wordplay Anagram of mouthy without 'm' (mum)
5A Def silly woman Wordplay M (male) + oo (hugs)
6A Def Creep Wordplay Anagram of warlock without 'OK' (Oklahoma)
8A Def Meat cut Wordplay Reverse hidden (back from) in toMAHawk
9A Def Fred and George possibly Wordplay Evil level double-definition by example. Who remembers B1 and B2?
1D Def Vessel Wordplay Anagram of Cathy
2D Def Taste Wordplay 'U' + IMAM backwards
3D Def Tug Wordplay Homophone of toe
4D Def Bears Wordplay Old (dated) inside HS (highschool)
7D Def Undercooked Wordplay Reversal of war (fight)
Checking for previous play data...
