NYT Thursday Puzzle - October 29, 2015

Theme: Two word answers with the final letter of the first word being the first letter of the second word. That letter appears twice in the same circled square. 66-Across has the clue to the circles. They spell out LION.

17A. Party-going and such = Socia(l l)ife
24A. One whose work is going downhill = Sk(I i)nstructor
41A. Second chance = D(o o)ver
53A. Campbell’s variety = Chicke(n n)oodle
66A. Almost all … and a hint to the five circled letters = Lion (s s)hare

This was easier than I first thought it would be especially for a Thursday.
