Laughter is the best medicine

I confess, I Love Lucy!  Sure there are other comediennes that have made me laugh, but there’s something about Lucy that just touches my heart.  Do you know what I mean?  Lucille Ball, with her red hair, always seemed to have such a friendly way about her.  She was the gal you wanted to have as your friend, even if like Ethel, you’d be lead to do crazy things.

Do you remember the show?  Lucy and Ethel would always get into silly messes and it was by pulling together in friendship that they would eventually triumph.  Ricky and Fred (their husbands) would either get hoodwinked or join in the fun.  Like a good sitcom, there was a happy ending and lots of hugs and smiles.  All would be right even though there might have been a bit of trouble during the show.

I think there’s something to the whole “I Love Lucy’ philosophy though in how to stay young.  Be curious, don’t be afraid to get what you want.  Be kind, but be yourself and don’t apologize for it.  Be optimistic.  Surround yourself with family and friends who love you for who you are and will join you when you suggest trying even the most outrageous silly things!  Don’t worry, just be happy!  I could go on and on, but you get my drift by now, don’t you?  I have so many favorite episodes ~ the wine making, the one with Harpo, the one with Bob Hope, oh I think all of the ones with the famous actors who guest-starred on the show~ what are your favorites?  Let’s share below for a giggle start to our day today!

I wish you an I Love Lucy day ~

surrounded by happy loving people, laughing and smiling all day long!

Shine On!

  1. As I approach the young age of 72, I value the importance of happiness. And, when others choose not to share happiness experiences with me, I create my own. Thank you for sharing.

  2. I Love Lucy, too!!! Such a genuinely, funny, innocent, show. And I think it’s incredible how it has stood the test of time. I still enjoy it, today. Favorites? So many!!! John Wayne and the cement, the wine making (classic), the “ladies overseas aid”, the baby episodes ….. the birth one is wonderful, and the ‘telling’ Ricky is great, too. 🙂 Thanks for the morning smiles!!!! 🙂

  3. I was fortunate that “I Love Lucy” was on just before my bed-time. Didn’t have to plead to stay up later, as I did for the Twilight Zone.
    Ricky was my favorite: “Bah Bah Lou!” And “Lucy, you con(meaning can’t) be in the show!”
    Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Simpler times-better times.

  4. I Love Lucy AND your post. Chocolate factory, John Wayne and the cement, side of beef/giant BBQ, buying and running the hamburger restaurant, Superman/George Reeves, designer dresses/lampshades…

  5. I loved watching this show!

    I was a bit disappointed when I found out the actors that played Fred & Ethel really didn’t like each other in real life.
    I was disappointed about the Ricardo / Ball divorce too.
    Well – that’s Hollywood – I guess…
