    Lots of fun, thanks Nate! One clue note - 57A's answer would be MOAT. MOTE is a speck of dust or similar.

      Shoot! Thank you for pointing that out. The things I think I know, tsk tsk on me! Appreciate the correction and thanks for solving it.

      Liked the theme a lot! (I felt like 43A was a bit of an odd entry out because the letter changes were a bit different.) Same note on 43A; also 25A feels a bit off. CEASE means "bring to an end"; the current clue seems like it would match EASES better.

        You are right, IM wondering what I could have said differently because those letters were different than the rest of the themed clues. Also, noted on 25A. I was looking up word definitions and loosens the strictness popped up and I thought it might work well, but I can see where it would completely seem like the 2nd word you mentioned. You are awesome, thank you!
