Clue/Question:  Rushmore’s Presidents can talk to each other so much thanks to all the – – –

Answer:  FACE TIME

(A modern twist on a well worn Jumble cartoon scenario!  It’s still a stinky pun, but it’s a fresher stinky pun!  It’s kind of like a presidential version of “The View”, or “The Talk”.  Just the boys, discussing vanity issues.  Of course T.J. is the most concerned with his wrinkles.  And, old George seems more than happy to point them out to him!  And, Teddy and Abe are discussing facial hair envy.  Thank God Whoopee, Joy and Meghan have more relevant/pertinent discussions!  

All of today’s clue words are founding fathers of the ralis95 clue word database.  And, only one of the jumbles is coming up as new, as we’ve seen “ructo”, “vcatie” and “crifee” in earlier Jumbles.  Hey, Randy!  FIERCE is a good example of the I before E, except after C, thing working!  It’s got that E sound.  Surprisingly, I had some trouble unscrambling “ructo”!  The jumble made me look for a two syllable word.  Good jumble.  Excellent eight letter answer letter layout too.  Sufficiently cryptic.

Typical top-notch Mount Rushmore cartoon from Monsieur Knurek.  Apparently, cracks are a significant issue with the 80 year old – since completion – memorial.  So, if you’ve been meaning to go, maybe plan getting there sooner than later.  Just know that you’ll be viewing it from quite a distance, so it might not look as big as you see in most pictures of it.  And, they REALLY should rename it, in honor of the Lakota Sioux people.  Charles Rushmore was just a New York City lawyer who happened to be working out there for a mining company!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

    UR,treal

    All-around terrific Jumble * even if not that difficult^…(the F in FIERCE then >>>…….)

    Goal/Net time: The odds-boys did the Montreal “Habs” a favor>>They put the Tampa Bay Lightning -210/166 favorites…Ca’ on Man!!…basically their saying the Lightning are twice as good as the “Habs”…They are the better team, but having to put up $210 to win $100 on Tampa, forgit ’bout it!!>>Why the favor; This has fired-up the Canadian’s even more €…I can’t remember rooting for another Country’s team over a USA team in a major sport, but am for the “Habs” ¥…{No $$$ down ’till gm. 2}…No Canadian Stanley Cup holder since ’93, Oh No!!…too looong… {I can envision the young man on the outskirts of Montreal…on his
    parent’s frozen pond, dreaming of that “Gooaal” in gm. 7 of the Stanley Cup Finale {you French Mme”s, you go too, and toss your boyfriends’ hat into the rink}…don’t “trick” me now♡…….

    This may sound stupid/silly, but Tampa Bay, FL & Pro Hockey is a “no-mix”…Doesn’t even sound right??¿… {For Tampa, that damn Russian goal- keep, toooo goood}
    My wife calls it, “Guarding the “Little House”Ha”

    Now you’ve gone and made me interested in the Hockey Finals, Ken! After the Isles were booted I kind of lost interest. Maybe now I’ll tune in to the games! — YUR

    UR,

    Straight-up: The key to the series is gm 2 Wed. (besides the close out gm, of course) in my experience when a team with all-around less talent {The Habs} can win or least play to the bitter end (lose in OT on a great goal), it’s
    sometimes amazing how this effects the underdog!!*…even though these are some of the greatest pros in their sport, the human mind set still matters,*¥, Oh Yea☆…….

    “Ooh Canada…….” There they are, PC PoPo…
    What’s that no-class barmaid doing in Manhattan??¿…Oh, you’ll give me what for free??…She wouldn’t make it in my Hood on Fulton St., Very East NY Brooklyn…For sure…….

    Lattter…….k

    Thanks for the pic with the Natives and the renaming suggestion. Something I found much more impressive than Rushmore was Crazy Horse Mountain, not far from Rushmore. A memorial to Crazy Horse taken on by one sculptor and his family and funded privately. Even though it is only partially completed it puts Rushmore to shame.

    I’ve always wanted to see the Crazy Horse memorial too, Anne! We need to build many more statues and memorials to Native Americans, in all the Americas. — YUR
