    In the 2017 version I'm down to one, 64D, Tailless Amphibian (4), which should be either Toad or Frog! However, other answers give me four letter word beginning with R and ending in E; R * * E Any help appreciated! Happy Christmas All!

    64d is frog. You should have satisfaction for 63a and arrangements for 77a

    I'm just missing the one - 56d

    Thanks juniorBman, I got mixed up between 61D and 64D! 56D is "FORBID".
