Are you a Lucy or an Ethel…or maybe just a Porky Pig?




I adore Lucy.  I even have a signed photo of her hanging in my family room.  Ask any teenager who Magnum P.I. was and they will look at you with a dumbfounded gaze.  Ask them who Lucy is and they will know.  Now that’s staying power.

Lucy would have been 100 just the other day and I don’t think there has been a day since that show was filmed when “I Love Lucy.” Hasn’t been shown somewhere in the world.

The other day my dog, who, I might add, is totally housebroken, was having issues leaving puddles in places other than the great outdoors.  I figured she might have a urinary tract infection and took her to the vet where he prescribed antibiotics.  Until this remedy starts to work, I decided to barricade my dining room, living room, and office so she wouldn’t go in there when I wasn’t watching.  Since this was a temporary measure I piled up items in the doorways.  Does that sound like a Lucy action to you?

Well, rushing to get things done I went into my dining room, and forgetting the barricade was there, I tripped over the stuff, landed on my face, bit my lip nearly off, and twisted my glasses into a very weird shape.  As I sat there examining my injuries, I wondered, Lucy or Ethel…but what I came up with was….th-th-th-th-that’s all folks.

Have a great injury free day!

Poor you Crystal, sounds very painful. I think there's a bit of Lucy in all of us. I used to watch here, as a teeny in London I didn't have a TV, and use to go and sit with the caretaker's Grandma to watch Lucy! Thanks for the nice memories, and get well soon to you and your doggy! Valerie

That's the stuff sitcoms are made of, Crystal. Glad you survived the day.

Oh my...hope you are ok. I love Lucy! We were just talking about her the other day. I used to watch her show when I was home from school sick, in grade school. Now I love the reruns. My husband says some of my antics remind him of Lucy : )

thanks for all your kind thoughts, when all is said and done, the only thing really hurt was my pride. I've been told that I am a walking sitcom but at least I can laugh at myself. :-)

Lucy was one of the best comedic actresses ever. Perfect timing. I have fond memories of watching her with my mom and dad growing up (re-runs) and she still catches my attention if I run across a show.

I was thinking your fall though might be more like Carol Burnett ;)

Glad you didn't break anything!
