Today we celebrate the Queen of Comedy, Lucille Ball, on her birthday.
I cannot even begin to put into words how much this lady has meant to me over the years. I was first introduced to I Love Lucy when I was 5 or 6 while staying at my neighbors house, Ms Loving, when my parents were at work. I began dressing like Lucy soon afterwards. I still remember dressing like her for a “hero’s day” at school. Only one other friend of mine even knew who I was supposed to be. The teacher knew, of course. I remember my friends asking “Who is Lucy”? I would try to explain, but they really had no idea as they had never seen her on TV.
I have read every book on Lucille Ball and I have a nearly complete video collection of her work. I simply admire the heck out of this woman!! And…I truly LOVE Lucy.
This is one of my favorite episodes of ILL.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY LUCY!! You are loved and missed by millions.
