Definitions come from unless otherwise linked.

We didn't accept it at the time, but...
bey - a provincial governor in the Ottoman Empire
pars - plural form of par
lude (Josh and I were thinking of the word lewd) - slang for Quaalude, a brand of methaqualone. (though I don't remember if Boggle accepts slang)

We know its a word, we don't know what it means...
bevel - the inclination that one line or surface makes with another when not at right angles
bevel - an adjustable instrument for drawing angles or adjusting the surface of work to a particular inclination
parser, so I took a computer programming class and/or must have come along this word somewhere in my computing encounters to have known it was a word, but I am reminded what it means by this wikipedia page: parsing.
parson - a member of the clergy, esp. a Protestant minister; pastor; rector.
parson - the holder or incumbent of a parochial benefice, esp. an Anglican.

par, we're used to the third sense, but the fourth sense is countable, and there is even an example given:

1. Equal value; equality of nominal and actual value; the value expressed on the face or in the words of a certificate of value, as a bond or other commercial paper.
2. Equality of condition or circumstances.
3. (golf, mostly uncountable) The allotted number of strokes to reach the hole.
He needs to make this shot for par.
4. (golf, countable) A hole in which a player achieves par
* 2009 January 18, “Paul Casey storms to four-stroke lead in Abu Dhabi”, Herald Sun: Kaymer started with six straight pars before making a birdie on the seventh and an eagle on the eighth.
5. Young salmon (also spelled parr)

rud, I didn't submit this word, but apparently its a word, it is a color/pigment - ruddle, red ocher

Round breakdown:
Josh (22) Tim (10)
Josh (3) Tim (10)
Josh (6) Tim (8)

nots: I guess you can pluralize 'not'
This means Josh's ambiguous point in his second round is resolved, so he earned 3 instead of 2.
lade: apparently I didn't make this word up, it has the following definition (
–verb (used with object)
1. to put (something) on or in, as a burden, load, or cargo; load.
2. to load oppressively; burden (used chiefly in the passive): laden with many responsibilities.
3. to fill or cover abundantly (used chiefly in the passive): trees laden with fruit; a man laden with honors.
4. to lift or throw in or out, as a fluid, with a ladle or other utensil.
–verb (used without object)
5. to take on a load.
6. to lade a liquid.
ley: apparently I didn't make this word up, it's an alternate word for lea, a grassland or meadow
Gus: didn't have any results for 'gus' but it lists 'Gus' as a "a male given name, form of Augustus or Gustave." As such, it wouldn't count in boggle
gussy: this, however, is a word (
–verb (used with object)
1. to enhance the attractiveness of in a gimmicky, showy manner (usually fol. by up): a room gussied up with mirrors and lights.
–verb (used without object)
2. to dress in one's best clothes (usually fol. by up): to gussy up for the ball.

Even with ley and lade, I would have been one behind. And its only fair I only get 28 points, because I didn't know the words at the time, and so I wasn't able to defend them as valid answers.
