Bait and switch: Each clue below can be answered by changing one letter in the given, capitalized word, and then anagramming the letters. Some easy, some may be alterative spellings hyphenated or Britspeak, and a few that may need the Stitchionary. There may even be the odd two-word answer...

Plenty to go round, so feel free to grab a couple.

LEATHER

-1. Captivate
-2. Unit of area
-3. Give confidence to
-4. French port
-5. Refuge
-6. Up-market air transport
-7. Soaped-up
-8. Middle-East capital
-9. Made aware of
-10. Place of entertainment
-11. Without end
-12. "Wednesday Morning...."
-13. Artist's workshop or studio
-14. Surround or cover
-15. "_____ Glide", Harley
16. Slang for the auditory sense organ
-17. Foot-operated lever
-18. Meteorological conditions
-19. Changed
-20. Foolish voluble talk
-21. Small portion of liquor remaining in a glass or bottle after drinking
-22. Bonded to ground
-23. Spread thickly
-24. At or to which place
-25. Shafted weapon with an axe-like cutting blade and spike
-26. Type of mine found on Discworld
-27. Rising air current
-28. Respire
-29. High-order ecclesiastic
-30. Evergreen Eurasian ericaceous shrub
-31. One who breaks the rules
-32. To change the blade angle of a propeller so that the chords of the blades are approximately parallel to the line of flight


To waste one second of one's life is a betrayal of one's self.

Sometimes lost is where you need to be. Just because you don't know your direction doesn't mean you don't have one.
