  2. I want to add my great sorrow at Frank's passing; RIP, friend; remember, well, arrdubya asking me what I remembered most about my nearly 5-year, nearly full-time daily, volunteering for the Lucy-Desi Museum et al, and of course, it was: "Chauffeuring the chauffeur!!!!" (can't remember the year; but think 2004 or 2005; he came back once after that; thanked me again; he rode with me, the designated luggage person back to Buffalo Airport and their flight home. Luggage loaded; me at the wheel; knock on passenger door; it was Frank; 'can I ride with you?' He was particularly interested in the wild plants growing in the swamp along Jones/Gifford, Celoron; what we called the 'lower road;' on the way to the thruway; I had no idea; so researched and got the message to him in CA...... lovely man!

  4. GOT mine! (See Premiere this Lounge) posted over there; several photos meaningful to me: my Dad; my nephew; a former classmate brother; and ALL THE OTHERS. There's one in there confuses me; have never read that Desi mom went with them. See page 163; looks like her on the bed.... My dad: page 106; w/his best friend; page 108; PP 90, 91 (Dawson) (DeMarco) each an interview w/Lucy. Thanks for the heads up regarding book signing in August.
  5. Just received from Amazon, Christopher T. Olsen, Lucy Comes Home, A Photographic Journey; it's lovely. Rumor has it, the Restaurant he and his former classmate have not progressed in the repair of the burned-out famous eating place, Bemus Point (on the other side of the Lake); [questionable assumption if they are still buying it] can't remember who told me; but, if I hear anything further, will pass the word along. Just as a reminder, Chris is son to the Forever Darling Prremiere Queen, Janice Swanson (at the time) during Arnazes visit here in '56.
