I love you, Lucy

When I was a kid, I wanted to grow up to be Lucille Ricardo.

Best friends with Ethel,

dapper cuban band leader husband and all.

She made me laugh.

Really hard.

And 60 years later,

we’re still laughing.

Happy 100th birthday, Lucy. We love you.

Here’s to 100 more.

 

Lucille Désirée Ball

1911-1989

  1. and she is a knockout

    • Amen to that! I think part of her enduring appeal was that even though she was so gorgeous, she would do absolutely anything for a laugh. She even had a small role in a 1934 episode of the Three Stooges called “Three Little Pigskins”. My husband and I were watching the show one day and noticed how beautiful one of the actresses was. Then she said her line and we were flabergasted to discover it was Lucy – as a platinum blonde, no less!
