Clue/Question:  Getting into the fender bender turned the orthodontist into a . . .

Answer:  DENTIST

(Nice little pun!.  A couple of tried and true clue words, and a couple of tougher ones.  I hesitated on “grinch” for a bit, but nothing else seemed to fit.  And, it is in the dictionary, despite its origin being the main character of a Doctor Seuss story.  Boris Karloff will always be the Grinch in my book.  I never had the patience to watch the Jim Carrey movie version.  Nothing against Jim, mind you.  I think there are just some things you can’t improve on.  I’m sure some of you had trouble with “apiece”, just because it has a lot of vowels and it starts with a vowel.  But, it jumped off the page for me.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

PS.  Goodbye “Old Blue”!  You was a trusty ol’ car.  You served my family well.      YUR
