I Love Lucille Ball's 100th Birthday Celebration - a Special Honoring!

August 6th, 2011 - will mark the 100th Birthday of Lucille Ball. Many will be doing special honoring ceremonies and TV Specials to commemorate the day a true Legend was born.


Lucy is a favorite Actress of so many. ( I know, "I Love Lucy"! ) She was born in Jamestown, New York - where a festival of comedy, will take place Aug 3-7, 2011, to celebrate Lucille Desiree Ball! It's called Lucy Fest! You can see all the details on the Official Lucy Desi Center Web-site. There will be a parade and a Lucy Radio Show re-enactment, plus loads more! Sounds like so much fun.. just like Lucy!

I Love Lucy - The Complete Fourth SeasonMy Favorite "I Love Lucy" Episode:

Oh my, or as Lucy would say, "Eeeewwwww", can I possibly choose one? I think my absolute favorite is The Dancing Star with Van Johnson - for once Lucy is the star and she is successful! I love it! Plus, I love their trip to California when they end up at the same rest stop over and over again - and when Lucy does the Commercial, when she tells Ricky she is expecting, when they redecorate the Mertz Apartment, the chickens, the lawn mower, Ethel's birthday gift, the chocolate candy, the home permanent, meeting Bill Holden, Madame X, Lucy misses the Boat, and so many more........oh, I guess I do love them all!
