Possible Title:   “R” You There?

Theme:  initial “R” sound substituted for by “W" sound, a la Elmer Fudd

Good Ones:
Toon who inspired {theme}   ELMER [also the last entry as a kind of summary]
About 98 degrees F.?   WOMBTEMPERATURE
Jack Daniel's field?   WHISKEYBUSINESS [it was also George Washington's]
Part of a plot   ACRE
Online qualifier   IMHO [I thought passwords, etc.]
Target of a series of guides   IDIOT [as in Crosswords for Idiots]
Something to keep a watch on   WRIST [works best if you don’t notice “a” --- which I didn’t]
Land at Charles deGaulle Airport?   TERRE
Piece of cake   TIER [as in a wedding cake]

By the Way:
Disinterested   ALOOF [disinterested = impartial; uninterested = not involved or caring --- aloof.  Anyway, that distinction seems no longer to exist.  It’s like healthful = promoting good health; healthy = of good health.

I read Chapman’s Piloting closely but don’t recall "sea mile" substituted for "nautical mile."

RATING:  ;D ;D ;D Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
