WORDY WEDNESDAY #130
PENT WORDS 26
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 ____ home the bacon / Circular
2 Word following "empty" or "universal" in mathematics / Final course of a meal, often
3 Father of Moab / One who sells meat
4 90 degrees on a compass / Real ____
5 Dutch ____ disease / Capital on the island of Java
6 Unpolluted / ____: Stallion of the Cimarron (2002 movie)
7 Artificial / Like some love
8 Crazy person / Comfortably warm
9 Blue / I, for example
10 Forge / Move while holding the mouse button

PENTOMINOES:
* HALF OF THE FINAL ANSWER
* THE OTHER HALF OF THE FINAL ANSWER
* Pickling need
* Painting on a wall
* The Lone Ranger's companion
* Reward for a good dog, perhaps
* Reverent
* Disgusting
* Former Green Bay quarterback Bart
