WORDY WEDNESDAY #160
PENT WORDS 32
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 Terrier's tether / Additional
2 Material in an Elvis song title / Because
3 Become dry and wrinkled / "Friends in ____ Places" (Garth Brooks song)

5 ____ deco / Like the shape of DNA
6 Be a skeptic / Extremely angry
7 Dis / Item worn around the neck in cold weather, perhaps
8 One shouting "Safe!", perhaps / Marlin's son
9 Kerchief / "See ya!"
10 Makes a quick note / Old ____ (1957 Disney film)
