100 Years Funny…

Today would be Lucille Ball’s 100th birthday.  She was my hero growing up.  Yes, I realize I Love Lucy was before my time.  Way before my time.  But, my babysitter (Auntie Jill was her nickname) was obsessed with Lucille Ball and I grew up watching more I Love Lucy than anything else.  She was so beautiful and funny and charming and silly and fantastic.  I always admired how she kept up with and surpassed the boys.  She was a pioneer for women in comedy and made me laugh until I almost peed my pants every single day growing up and for that I will be forever grateful. 

So here’s to you, Lucy.  Such an amazing life and career.
