    I thought I would find a crowd here! Got the clue words quickly, figured WAS was the three letter word. Then I found SOUND…..BUT, SOUND was mentioned in the puzzler cartoon. That won’t do. So I worked and worked and finally decided that there was no “rule” that I knew of the guyz stuck to regarding the use of words in this manner, though it didn’t happen very often, so — I took out WAS and SOUND from the clue letters to see what I had left….tada! Logic. So, guyz, y’all were a bit diabolical today!!!! Grand puzzler. L
