THEME:   definitions of words sounding the same as /rite/
Indication of freshness?   SLAP   
Phone in a play, e.g.   PROP [not write a poor drama]   
Rover's turf   MARS [I thought dog, of course]   
Worker at home   UMP [I thought Mom]   
Sleep on it   COT and SHEET [neither noun can be defined by the verbal phrase "sleep on it" which is an imperative --- the laws of syntax forbid it --- the clue must be changed to a declarative as in the mundane "One can sleep on it"]

Happy Thanksgiving.  I'm not sure when newspapers stopped running holiday themed puzzles, but they were fun.  I suppose it is sophisticated to be iconoclastic; and if so, given all my education, where did I go wrong?
RATING: ;D ;D   
Three grins = Loved it; Two grins = Enjoyed it; One grin = A bit bland for my taste; One teardrop = Not much fun
