This puzzle:

Rows: 15, Columns: 15 Words: 76, Blocks: 42 Missing: {FGJQZ} This is puzzle # 35 for Ms. Michaels. NYT links: Across Lite PDF
Andrea Carla Michaels notes:

Another partners theme, but with threesomes...but since WYNKEN, BLYKEN AND NOD was longer than 15, I thought it might be fun to list one of the trio and have the solver come up with the other two. I envisioned this as a call and response between constructor and solver.

Snap!
