Thank you so much! I love getting feedback from my followers. Just wish I had more time to blog! I appreciate the kind words. Lucy has been my queen for so long. She’s such an inspiration. I’m glad there are other people out there that agree with me!

Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz
“While I was growing up, she tried to keep our lives simple in the midst of what was going on, tried to let us have a real life…I just saw her as my mother. She wasn’t really a disciplinarian or a taskmaster…She had a lot of old fashioned values that she got from her mother. My parents always said there’s a lot more to life than how much money you have or how to impress people…We were really very close in those later years, we were able to say everything we needed to say to each other. All along she said, ‘What is important in life is to be happy and enjoy your life and have a good relationship with somebody.’ She wanted to have a happy life. She did the best she could.”
