    Just in case my previous guess was wrong...


    219. Hot, Fish, Bell

    Colonoscopy. Hot Colonoscopy (like hot massage, they do it with heated rocks on your back to make it more relaxing), Colonoscopy Fish (a specially-trained fish, with a camera on its head and a string on its tail, that swims upstream after being lubricated and inserted), and Colonoscopy Bell (a little wind-up timer that dings when it's time to pull the string and remove the fish).







    I woke up in an odd state of mind today.

    406. Blackbird, Thunderbird, Bird Cage

    You betcha!

    This puzzle was a tribute to the Ford Thunderbird 406 V-8.



    409. Beach Blanket, Echo Beach, Beach Boys

    Kee-rect!

    This puzzle was a tribute to the Chevrolet 409 V-8 (as was the song by the Beach Boys -- see what I did, there?).


    Congratulations! You have just won a life-sized portrait of a genius (look in your mirror to claim this prize).

    Rebel Rouser (Duane Eddy hit), Rebel Yell (Billy Idol hit), and Rebel Rebel (David Bowie hit).



    Congratulations! You have just won a cash prize!

    (If you can live with yourself for taking that kitten's coin)

    About five hours ago, this occurred to me while driving, but I didn't want to endanger the other motorists. Now that I'm parked...



    394. But, For, Mat



    How about Tresses? I would have said tress, but can only recall having heard this word in the plural.


    Buttresses (architectural feature, as found on Notre Dame Cathedral, or sometimes used as 'flying buttresses' to describe the sail panels of such automobiles as the Jaguar XJS or the Ferrari 308), Fortresses (oversized, overbuilt replicas of structures made of furniture cushions), and Mattresses (expensive things you lie down on, and rarely see after purchase).



    Howzat?

    Maybe time for some hints on mine.



    252. Blue, Ball, Mug, Bolt

    Two vehicles, two movies, somehing that used to be handy in the bedroom



    402. Heart, Is, Cruiser

    A means of conveyance, a television show, and where Denver was.



    404 -- *ERROR: FILE NOT FOUND*

    Nobody really thought this was a puzzle, did they? 'Cause it's not.



    379. Standard, Rail, Switch
    398. Cure, Wave, Wed
    399. Mob, Pin, Burg
    400. Natural, Man, Ego
    401. Port, Away, Ton

    In all cases, the word we need comes before the clues given (harder to Google that way :p).

    Of these five puzzles, one has a town in a 'dry' county, one has a place to put something kind of large, one has an orphan, one has something that could be found on an oven, and one has a word I first encountered here:

    Ha, ha, haaa...YES!


    Of, course a Land Cruiser was what Marlin Perkins rode around in, and Heartland is one of our Canadian TV shows.



    Nicely done!


    Congratulations! You have just won an all-expenses-paid trip to bed.


    Seriously, man, hit the hay, already.
