This post will barely make sense....
1) Happy 100th Birthday to Lucille Ball! I am not sure there would ever have been enough laughing in my life without her.
2) I read this story and needed to share it... and it doesn't even tangentially relate to Lucy ... except that the Lucille Ricardo was theoretically from upstate NY and so was this soldier... it's a big state, so it's useful.
3) I am too tired and overwhelmed [and disgusted with the snail's pace of my internet, when it works] with things that need to get done this weekend to look for pictures... so, good thing everyone knows what Lucy looks like, right? Check out her wikipedia page and these articles just in case.
