  1. Good Morning, Everyone…I hope this finds you well…

    📺 BOGIE? BOGUS!…I THINK IT’S A BUNCH OF…[=*($/¥^[, 📺

    🎶 The Brady BUNCH…The Brady BUNCH..That’s the way we became the Brady Bunch….🎶…”Theme Song from The Brady Bunch” Cast Members 1969 https://tinyurl.com/jpd4bzb6

    📺 It doesn’t make an OUNCE of sense unless you’ve seen the show,
    There are those who will FLAUNT knowledge when it comes to it though…
    I SHYLY will admit here I’m a PEBBLE in the sand,
    Because I’m not Brady savvy…never embraced the brand
    But pop culture does live on…it does wallop a punch…
    And when it comes to this show?…It’s been dubbed BEST OF THE BUNCH! 📺

    So…”Pork Chops and Applesauce”….Hmm…Ok…In the interest of full disclosure, here’s what MEATS the eye…I’ve never seen the “Brady Bunch”. I know of it simply because over the years references to it have POPped up a gazillion times in the media and trivia contests, and it’s become a POP Culture staple. But whether one’s seen the show or not, getting today’s solve was a piece of cake, simply because IMO, you hear “Brady”, you automatically think BUNCH. (Well some people think Tom, but let’s not ruin a good day). Anyway…the solve was an automatic read…because between the extensive info given in both the dialogue and the question, it was simply a case of BLACK AND WHITE…But for those of you who may not know, below is some background info I’ve gleaned for you on the “Personality Kid”. And of course I went right to the SAUCE…Google!

    Two generations of TV watchers, speaking of a third. It’s present day, but our puzzle revolves around Episode #3 of Season #6 of the “Brady Bunch”…Airing in 1971, the character Peter, played by Christopher Knight, after being told that he lacked personality, is shown on screen imitating Humphrey Bogart…uttering what’s become an extremely POPular catchphrase of the show. And ironically, in an episode that’s geared toward teaching the lesson of “to thine own self be true”, the featured line’s been imitated a million times! Go figure…Anyway, here’s the clip… https://tinyurl.com/4tsdkd2c And here’s an extremely in-depth synopsis of the episode… https://tinyurl.com/4xjyce95 …both firsts for me. But the bottom LINE? …No pun intended…The most POPular episodes featuring the Brady family were the…BEST OF THE BUNCH! https://tinyurl.com/2kpusxfe

    And today’s Gems? The kid checking episode reviews online is something to SEE, as is the funny way Peter’s mouth is twisted, trying to emulate Bogie, just as he did on the show…But I guess this family must be Super Bowl…I mean super Brady fans, because the BEST OF THE BUNCH? There in the credenza below the TV? …A replica of that iconic horse https://tinyurl.com/2rwptkpw …And talk about beating a dead one..It too still lives on in pop culture…I guess it was the show’s MANE attraction…

    So…There you have it Folks…Done. Have a good one. Be well, be kind, stay safe…and…HUMPH!!!…FREE speech not withstanding….and contrary to POPular belief…Bogie never said “Pork Chops and Applesauce”…And maybe it’s just me, but I think Peter sounded more like someone doing a poor imitation of the Kennedy family…But ..Hey…Here’s looking at you, Kids! 📺🙋🏻‍♀️


  2. 🤷🏻‍♂️ SHYLY considering himself just a PEBBLE in the ocean compared to the others, he didn’t project an OUNCE of confidence and would never FLAUNT his accomplishments…when in reality he’d prove to be the BEST OF THE BUNCH…🤷🏻‍♂️

    👑 Today it was a PEBBLE game, they’d weigh them by the OUNCE,
    And of course they would FLAUNT their catch, hoping that they could trounce…
    The others with their numbers, but the one girl SHYLY thought,
    That she would never measure up with how many she caught…
    But she stuck with it…all the while never having a hunch…
    That she’d end up the winner…she was crowned BEST OF THE BUNCH! 👑

  3. I am so happy that the jumbles are so fun ! I watched the Brady Bunch all the time ! Great series ! Man , each one of the characters could FLAUNT their stuff and Bobby and Cindy were never SHYLY ! Not one OUNCE of any regret for the Brady’s ! So I’m gonna throw in a PEBBLE say 🎵 that is why we call them all , the Brady Bunch🎵 And that is the BEST OF THE BUNCH ! Everyone have a very Brady Wednesday

  4. Good morning. I was able to duplicate yesterday’s result as well. No blind solve but no hesitation on either part. As soon as I read the remark of applesauce and pork chops I knew it was from the Brady bunch but forgot who he was trying to imitate. Thanks Angela for all the info. Until tomorrow stay well and stay safe.

  5. You could say we had a hunch
    That if it all came down to the crunch
    No trouble there’d be
    Plain for all to see
    The missing word was bunch

  6. Fond memories of the Brady Bunch on this successful Jumble solve!At least we survived the Illinois primary election, for now.

  7. 📺 Brady Bunch took the country by storm,
    TV concept that wasn’t the norm…
    Saw two families blend,
    Viewers watched hours on end…
    Just to see as the nonet performed! 📺

    👩🏻 Carol Brady the Matriarch reigned,
    And a following she quickly gained…
    Of course Alice was there,
    Acting like second “Mere”…
    So that peace in the house was attained! 👩🏻

    🤦🏻‍♀️Teen-aged angst ran amok in the plots,
    Whether real or just plain old ersatz…
    Brady’s took it in stride,
    Nothing we saw belied…
    As each episode tied up loose knots! 🤦🏻‍♀️

    🤷🏻‍♂️ Peter’s angst here became quite the hit,
    As his parents taught him of true grit…
    To thine own self be true,
    Lesson? You just be you…
    And it made for an iconic hit! 🤷🏻‍♂️

    📺 Ran for five seasons on our TVs,
    Syndication then ‘lowed it to be…
    Seen by decades more Folks,
    Was no need there to coax…
    It’s still seen now in year 53! 📺

  8. Easy solve today. Brady Bunch is not a program that we ever watched even though I know it was wildly popular. Wishing all of you a good Wednesday.

  9. I feel I’d be amiss if I didn’t mention the 51 souls lost in San Antonio. Regardless of one’s stand on the border issue, it’s always heartbreaking to learn of such a loss of life, such a tragedy. There but for the grace of God…May they rest in peace. 🙏🏻🙋🏻‍♀️
