I am not certain about 3 answers I have for this puzzle.
62a After midnight, get Erin to appear welcoming. I have g??e?i?g which I have presumed to be greeting but I can't explain why.
55d Rep turned to look at trailor. I have premiss (p?e?i?s) I'm confused.
63d Substitute book.I have reserve (R?s?r?e) again can't explain.
Would someone be kind enough to confirm and/or explain.
Many thanks Embarrassed Crying or Very sad

Hi tuesday
maybe my turn to help you now?
i also got greeting for 62A. it is an anagram of ERIN GETS.not sure why but it works...
for 55D i got preview. to look at something is to VIEW? turn around rep (pre) - PREVIEW
not sure for 63D but RESERVE fits!
sorry i cant be much more help but those were the ones i had trouble with as well

Hi tuesday, hope this helps

62A - The mid point of the word 'night' is G, so 'After midnight' would indicate that the word begins with 'G'. If you follow this with a simple anagram of get Erin (reeting) you get Greeting. If you greet someone you welcome them.

55D - REP turned = PRE + look at = VIEW. A movie trailer is a PREVIEW.

63d - a substitute on a sporting team is a RESERVE, and we book a train or theatre ticket to RESERVE a seat.

Does that help? :wink:

Holiday 60
Hi Tuesday,
I have GREETING. After mid night, that is G Put G with GET ERIN, it's an anagram and those 8 letters make Greeting.
RESERVE, well I think a reserve is a substitute, like a team player.

55D, rep turned to look at trailer
Rep turned is PRE, look at is view, so I got PREVIEW. To look at a trailer is to preview, isn't it?
Would like someone to confirm these please.
