Lucy A - Z -- I!

Recommended Posts

Okay....smarter than me's....and nearly everyone is, how does a 4-year marriage get 'annulled'???? JK

 

When you discover your ruggedly-handsome husband actually looks like Myron Cohen.

 

I've never heard the story behind this annulment but must be an interesting one.

Among so many pre-Lucy Gary mysteries.

"He was always working and never caught the top TV show of the fifties"

Really??? Where? What place books comics on a Monday night? From 9 to 9:30 I'll bet the place looked like Xavier Valdez's opening.

Ice-a-Box: what Ernie Kovacs wrote at the top of the page before drawing one as part of his "entertainment" in the Ricardo's living room in Connecticut. (Kind of like Pictionary only with real ice cubes as props! :lucythrill: )
