KOLEY  =  YOKEL,  LAWRC  =  CRAWL,  CUTLED  =  DULCET,  OSUREA  =  AROUSE —   Giving us:  OKRWDTOUE

Clue/Question:  How the postman stayed fit.

Answer:  HE WORKED OUT

(Very nice!  None of the clue words were obvious.  Nor was the answer.  I actually had a little trouble getting “dulcet”, because this wonderful adjective seems to have been relegated to mainly describing the music of Kenny G, and other such purveyors of muzak.  Could you guess that I’m NOT a fan???  Oh, and the New Yorker’s – not the magazine – definition of a “yokel” is: anybody who hails from outside the five boroughs! So, I guess that makes me and a few billion others yokels!  No offense to postal workers, especially our faithful mailmen!  AKA: mail persons.  You guys have taken a big hit, and I feel for you guys/gals.  Be good, do good, kids.)   — YUR
