This puzzle:

Rows: 21, Columns: 21, Words: 131, Blocks: 72 Missing: {BQVZ} This is puzzle # 3 for Mr. Ginsberg. NYT links: Across Lite

JimH notes: Some clues are missing so you need to "follow the instructions." For example, 11 Across is UPSIDE followed by the DOWN answer CAKES, so UPSIDE DOWN CAKES. Similarly, 29 Across is PICKED UP SPEED, 34 Down is TWO LEFT FEET, and 41 Down is EXTREME RIGHT WING, etc. All nine such clues are modified appropriately in the answers below. The print version had different grid numbers. Here's a hand-solved grid from Linda G's old blog.
