WORDY WEDNESDAY #95
PENT WORDS 19
In this puzzle, you must divide the grid into pentominoes (regions containing five cells each), and write a letter in each cell. The rows, reading from left to right, will contain the words hinted at by the ACROSS clues. The letters in the pentominoes, in reading order (left to right starting with the top row), will form the words hinted at by the PENTOMINOES clues; these clues are presented in no particular order. (In the example, the rows spell PLANT, SHARE, and BITES, and the pentominoes spell the words PLANS, TREES, and HABIT.) Use the ACROSS answers to determine where the pentominoes are.
ACROSS (two answers per row):
1 Country singer Black / Great destruction
2 Bubble ____ (Nick Jr. series) / "Dear ____ or Madam. . ."

7 Decorative Yuletide item / Ban alternative
8 List of scheduled duties / Write to disk
9 Drink stored in a cellar, perhaps / "Wasted Days and Wasted Nights" singer Freddy
10 Walk like a horse, perhaps  / Make a decision
