(Nice Mother’s Day angle, guys!  None of the clue words were new but they were all jumbled well.  The answer letter layout was great.  No giveaways.  Mutton chops on the doc, candles on the wall.  I like the old-fashioned rope bed, Jeff drew.  They allegedly had something to do with the phrase “sleep tight”, but many disagree on the actual origin of the phrase.  The doc has a lousy, male-chauvinist attitude.  Imagine, telling a woman in labor to go build a fire!  Does anyone know if Edison invented any medical/surgical devices?  He, and his company of inventors, did invent a slew of innovations.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
