Only when we are brave enough to explore the darkness will we discover the infinite power of our light.”   —   Brené Brown

(Has a nice ring to it!  We have seen Ms. Brown before, but I couldn’t tell you when.  Kind of a funny coincidence finding this photo of her and Dax Shepard.  He stars in “Bless This Mess”, which I referred to in today’s Jumble Spoiler!  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  FISH OUT OF WATER

(One of my favorite adages!  I love a good fish out of water story.  There probably have been others, but my three favorites have always been:  “Northern Exposure”, “3rd Rock from the Sun”, and “The Beverly Hillbillies”.  To a much lesser extent, I also liked “Green Acres”.  I’m a little curious about a new show coming to ABC, “Bless This Mess”, which looks to be a combination/ripoff of “Green Acres” and the movie “The Money Pit”.  I don’t watch sitcoms all that much these days, but I’ll give it a shot.

All of today’s clue words are of the MeTV ilk.  Though, all of their jumbles appear to be first-run, new episodes.  I was able to see the clue words right off the bat.  The answer letter layout was a magnificent fourteen letter jumble.  It definitely did not give anything away.  The wiser fish’s comment was a big hint, as was the clue/question.

Great fresh water cartoon.  Beautifully rendered fish, in the weeds, and a very impressive lure cutting through the water.  If you look closely, you’ll see an old can of Billy Beer half submerged in the stream or lake bottom.  Billy was the *hick* brother of President Jimmy Carter, whose main job was to embarrass the entire family.  I probably had a can or two, back in the day, but it definitely was not memorable.  Just a novelty.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR
