Puzzle Notes

It's another quiet week here at the ol' AVCX trading post. Oh, but wait, what's that attached to that tumbleweed blowing by? Why, it's another mini cryptic from Stella Zawistowski, along with two hint-y versions (one that reveals the wordplay type, one that highlights the definition and wordplay parts of each clue) for anyone who would like some extra assistance. We'll be back soon with your regularly scheduled weekly cryptics, which are both bigger *and* larger.
