Mondays Mug: I Love Lucy
Who doesn't love Lucy?
Here we are in sunny Florida once again;
the year, 2007
First an awesome stay in a romantic hotel
at St. Augustine Beach.
These little guys showed up for breakfast outside of our oceanfront room.
We visited the Titanic. (Before it hit the iceberg and sank, of course)
I got my ticket, (everyone received a ticket with a name of one of the passengers from the Titanic) and luckily I was one who survived in the end. Whew....
Next to the Titanic was an upside down house.
No autographs today please...
Here we found out how horror movies were made...
And it was pretty disgusting...
They demonstrated how animals were trained for TV and movies.
Okay, Back to Lucy. This is the model of The I Love Lucy set.
And this letter brought tears to my eyes. A handwritten letter from Lucy to her mother on her birthday.
Which of us wouldn't want to give this gift to our mom?
(It's not too legible, but I typed the words below)
What could I give you that would truly show how much I care? I'm not nearly rich enough to buy the world and fill it with lilacs and snowmen and crackling fires and hundreds of sunny weekends with a hundred people waiting in line just to play scrabble and a "henna rinse" that never needs "retouching"!! If I could I would build a special place like that and make everyone in it eternally youthful and call it Lucy Land for you to live in forever; and every day would be Christmas and every minute your birthday and you'd never have to ask for anything because it would be yours-always-from me which I'd have purchased with 'I Love You' Happy Birthday, Mom.
I guess even all of Lucy's money
can't buy true happiness.
Have a Great Monday everyone. And remember...only 4 more shopping days till Christmas. Be safe.
