PS.  –  Happy 154th Birthday to Teddy Roosevelt, our 26th President!  He was the kind of Republican that today’s right-wing-nuts don’t like to own up to.  My kinda guy!      YUR

Visual Description:  Unsettled infant causing wiped out parents.

SERPS  =  PRESS,  SALCH  =  CLASH,  PENTUU  =  TUNEUP,  RXTEPE  =  EXPERT   —   Giving us:  SSLSTEER

Clue/Question:  When the baby wouldn’t sleep, the parents got . . .

Answer:  REST LESS

(Or I suppose it could be LESS REST, but then you lose the play on words.  I’m surprised they didn’t do it as a hyphenated word.  That would have taken a little of the mystery out of it.  The clue words were all jumbled nicely, and here’s a first in the history of the Unclerave Spoilers.  All of today’s clue words are new!  ralis95 can add “clash”, “press”, “expert” and “tuneup” to the clue word  database.  I semi-backed in to “tuneup”.  I suspected it, but I just don’t like committing to those compound words.  The answer letter layout was splendid.  And the drawing conveys the young parents’ exhaustion.  I feel their pain.  Been there, done that.  Mostly glad it’s in my past.  Be well and do good, my friends.)   —   YUR
