  1. Bea Benederet played the mother of Jethro Bodine (and his sister Jethrine-Max Baer in drag) in the first season of BH. She was such a major character that they moved her out to Beverly Hills and she was even grouped with the family waving bye at the end of the show.

  2. Paul Henning had 3 comedy series in the 60's that were all successful. They also existed in the same world, and it became common to have a character from one show appear in another.

    The quiz question concerns two characters. The first was a woman who was a regular in two of the shows , but played 2 different characters.

    the other was a character who seemed to be the common link between the 3 shows, and ran a popular local business.

    if the questions seem vague, it's because I'm writing on the run.

  3. most of the faithful people in the areas I lived in were just getting by on bad paying, ever changing, low level type jobs. When someone needed to get their sponsorship together, they'd work her way through these people who could barely keep their own life intact. For years I was one of those people-it's another topic why I wasn't getting my life and career in gear-but I was doing the every night commitment, and being told to be thankful for my crummy day job because all work is honorable. Apparently missing a session of pfal which I'd heard 25 times, to devote some night work to myself was not honorable.

    Anyway, these poor apprentice corps would hit everyone up-literally nickel and diming it. Early on I caved under forceful personalities, and did my best to send 10 bucks here and there. I finally raised my standards. If someone I hardly knew, or I really had nothing to do with asked me, I learned to say no. If it was someone who I felt genuinely had blessed my life, and I had a genuine relationship with, I was happy to support. That didn't happen very often. It never bothered me if they didn't make it through. I couldn't see how anyone ever did. To me, it was turning your entire life over ,and I knew I wouldn't have lasted a month.

  4. there are really no other clues. I didn't think a Sally Field show would be that obscure, but I guess I did it again. the show was 'The Girl With Something Extra', Sally is married to John Davidson and has some kind of supernatural power, but it's nothing like Bewitched. I couldn't say or tell just what the power was-it was real murky, which may be a reason the show bombed.Some one else go so I don't derail the game again.

  5. ok another oddball one season wonder from the mid 60's. a family opens a broken down dude ranch in new mexico-I can't recall the parents, but I remember an annoying kid named Flip Mark, and an out of context Indian played by J Carroll Nash-who doesn't sound native american to me. I mainly tuned in cause I liked the catchy theme song-not an unusual reason back then.
