(Boy, I’m lucky that today’s answer was easy to figure out!  I really had a tough time coming up with two of the clue words. I knew it wasn’t right, but I couldn’t get away from PITYS!  I had to back into “tipsy” and also “salmon”!  It looks like “salmon” is new to the ralis95 clue word database, too.  Even though I kinda cheated on the two clue words, I thought that the answer letter layout was very good.  If I had gotten all the clue words – the legit way – I don’t think that the answer letter layout would have given anything away.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
