          Glad you enjoyed it, and thanks for solving!
          Basic question: what does WOF mean?

            It's a term for when you get it just based on the given letters/blanks from other clues. It's short for "Wheel of Fortune-ing", as it's the way that people solve words/phrases on that game show.
