happy 100th birthday to my favorite red head lucille ball! i was truly one of her biggest fans growing up. i recorded all 179 episodes of ‘i love lucy’ on vhs tapes and in order by air date (which took years). i was a bit obsessed, just ask any of my family members. my collection of lucille ball memorabilia is insane including some items that even belonged to her. i was nine years old when she died and i remember standing in front of the tv crying when i heard the news of her passing. it was always my dream to meet her and it seemed quite possible since one of her homes was about two miles from ours at the time in palm desert, california. i could go on and on with my love of lucy but that would take up a few pages. but i will say that most recently, the recessional music at my wedding was in fact the i love lucy theme song.
in honor of her would be 100th birthday, i am listing some of my most favorite i love lucy episodes.
#4 lucy does the tango **longest recorded laugh in tv history!**
#2 ricky thinks he’s getting bald
i just love google for recognizing lucy!
next, i want to see mariachis at the zoo.
