Work == MAN        (as in: Man the pumps!)
Work ==    OEUVRE  (as in: A work of art.)

Work == MANOEUVRE   (as in: Manoeuvre that lever into the open position.)


I think this clue was too obtuse and perhaps unfair. If so, I apologize. I did agonize over it some, but I thought it clever so I went with it anyway. Most clues seem to have a loose thread or hook to grab that can lead you to the answer (although I often don't see it). This may have been a bit too esoteric in that you almost had to start with the solution and work backward.

Let me know if you thought it unfair or invalid, and especially why you thought so. Don't worry about me, the hair may be thin but my skin is not! And thank you for any help!

Anyway, look at the bright side. It may have taken me 3 years to become the setter, bit you'll only have to wait through 3 days of my lousy clues. Big Grin | :-D

I'll try to make tomorrow's clue more traditional (if there is such a thing).
