(Marvelous, on all fronts!  Great stinker of a pun.  Wonderfully jumbled clue words.  None were new today, but the jumblings, with the exception of “inept”, were all new to me.  The answer letter layout kept the mystery going nicely.  But again, it all came down to the brilliant narrative cartoon of one Mr. Jeff Knurek.  Check out the detail, friends.  The funerary wreath, on a tripod stand.  The guest/sign-in stand, with entry book and little lamp.  The painting on the wall  –  a still life.  The nattily dressed undertaker, seated in a waiting area/foyer armchair, reading a book, entitled:  Life, by Keith Richards . . . who always kinda looks like death warmed over!  A lot of thought went into this, people.  Hope you all enjoyed it as much as I did.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
