Answer:  HEAD FOR THE HILLS

(This took a little to sink in for me.  I zeroed in on the kid staring at his cell phone, instead of the man-made wonder right in front of his face.  Because of that, I toyed with the idea that the fourth word might be AHEAD.  But, that sucked up three of the five vowels, and left one of the answer words vowel-less!  I was pretty certain that the three letter answer words had to be FOR and THE.  Then, I saw that the four letter answer word could easily be HEAD, and the answer became apparent.

All of the clue words are already members of the ralis95 clue word database.  Five of the jumbles do appear to be new though, with “pubrat” having definitely been used before.  I think that “pubrat” is an acceptable compound word in the United Kingdom . . . and Ireland.  Or, at least it should be.  There are other places to get your Jumble answers, but where are you going to get great commentary like this?  LOL!  The answer letter layout was a very challenging fifteen letter jumble.  It kept me scratching my head for a while.  And, I just washed my hair last night!

Jeff has drawn so many Mount Rushmore cartoons in the past that he could have recycled this one!  But seriously, it’s a great drawing of a family visiting a great national park.  Maybe someday even I will see it in person.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    Gee, unc !

    For a moment, I thought you were showing us a picture of your family in front of Mount Rushmore.

    It’s a good-looking bunch whoever they are.

    Well, I thought it was much more respectful than the photo of the Native-American family giving Mount Rushmore the finger! LOL! Although, I can appreciate where they’re coming from. — YUR

    I caved and sought the answer here. I figured “the” and “for” were in the answer but the boy tied to his electronics while everyone else was looking at the monument took me in the wrong direction.
    Great puzzle! Hope you get to see this famous landmark someday. Crazy Horse, too.

    I guess we’re alike then, Candy! At first, I really thought the kid looking at his cell phone was going to be more relevant to the answer. It almost felt a little like a misdirection.

    I would love to see both Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse. I’d also like to visit Stone Mountain. I hear that is also very impressive.

    I’ve never been to Mount Rushmore, but Stone Mountain right down the street. Up close, it’s quite impressive to see.
    Come during Spring or Summer.

    Could have done without the “politically correct”(?) article, lwc. I detest most forms of censorship, and especially the “sanitizing” of history. Extremism all too frequently results in the loss of historical works of art. The prudish/puritanical Christians who damaged, or destroyed, works of the Romans and Greeks, that they found “objectionable”. The Sufi Muslim leader who had the nose of The Sphinx destroyed. The alleged ISIS destruction of cultural heritage in Syria and Northern Iraq. A civilized society cannot afford extremist behavior in the name of the current “political correctness”.

    Amen Unc!

    So, I was within 5 days of catching up…..and then….life intervened again!

    This was a bit of a stinker! I finally went for For The as the middle two words and looked over what was left. Found HEAD and culled that out. HILLS remained and I was semi-sure that was it. Thank goodness I didn’t see AHEAD as I would have probably dug in and thought I needed to build around it.

    The guys have been hot. LL
