Here is a recent status report on Larry's health...
Larry writes:
  I was home recuperating in March.
  But now I'm at the Brigham + Women's / DFCI, getting some more chemo,
  as my doctors continue the search for a matching donor, or near-match
  for the intended transplant.
  I can have visitors who are healthy. Call my cell to make sure
  regarding my availability: 617-448-4778.


RID has what OWL2 (or Collins) front hooks?
MID + DUNE makes an obscure OWL2 (or Collins) seven.
CLOSE + ME makes an obscure OWL2 (or Collins) seven.
ASHENED is unacceptable, but it has an OWL2 (or Collins) anagram.
BAWDING is unacceptable, but it has an OWL2 (or Collins) anagram.
