Visual Description:  A National monumental undertaking in South Dakota.

ETHTE  =  TEETH,  SFSYU  =  FUSSY,  ODLRLA  =  DOLLAR,  PIMIRA  =  IMPAIR   —   Giving us:  EEHUSDORMR

Clue/Question:  They would have finished the project sooner had they done this.

Answer:  RUSHED MORE

(Mount Rushmore!  This was fun!  “Teeth” and “fussy” were pretty obvious, but “dollar” and “impair” were scrambled so you had to think a little.  Nice little pun, and a nice depiction of three of the four iconic U.S. Presidents.  Granite!  Symbolizing strength and integrity.  If they were to make one of our four – or five – most recent Presidents they’d have to use mud and straw!  Throw a little manure in there, too.)   —   YUR

PS.  Sorry this is late.  I received a last minute invitation to my nephew’s high school graduation.  It’s a 2 hour drive, and we were all in a rush to get out of the house in time to make it.  Got back a little after 9:30 PM, but didn’t feel like hopping on the ol’ time sink.   —   YUR

    LOL Yes, I agree on the Presidents we’ve had lately! IMPAIR took me awhile, but I am getting used to IM and IN coming in front of words now. I didn’t get the solution until near the end because I kept thinking CARVED. Duh! I need to think more about the drawings for future puzzles!
