Geez, if even an old timer like me doesn't know any of these people, hope you'll have SOME pictures in your Chronology. Some stars we never know by name but when we see a picture we recognize them as someone we've seen very often.

The idea in my mind, has ALWAYS been, to re-introduce the MANY friends, employees, and co-stars Lucille had over a 50+-year career; the MANY folks who were under the Desilu Umbrella; the personal friends I have been able to 'un-earth', etc.

 

My idea ALWAYS HAS BEEN, that once you see a name; you read their short bio and what contact they had with Lucille and Desilu family; and, if interested, watch one of the films/shows they were on; the credits always show that.

 

If you don't care to do that, you probably won't be interested in my 'lucylife' of nearly 10 years. This is more of a diary and/or a history book, something no one, heretofore, has taken on; it's been a gigantic task and work of love, beginning to end. That's why arrdubya WANTED IT BADLY and was willing to pay me what amounted to $.75 an hour to sign off on it, in early 2006, even at 300 pages; he recognized it for what it is; what it is becoming would ASTONISH even a man who thinks he is the BEST LUCY AUTHOR in the World.

 

DID I SAY, ad nauseum, I'VE BARELY SCRATCHED THE SURFACE, and it's already at 900+ pages . . . .

Yeah, I thought you once mentioned the tome was almost 1000 pages. These are things i'm just not aware of, like needing someone to authorize the use of their picture and of course, if you HAD all those pictures it would then probably become 2000 pages so I understand. Always remember that you are working on something truly special and very different, as you say, from anything ever attempted before regarding LUCY. It might be a lot of work, but think, when you leave this world, you will have accomplished something so many people will enjoy. Keep a gowin . . .

I don't think I had known he was also married to another Lucy guest actress, "Patty Duke Show" star Jean Byron.

In Lucy's heyday, there was this huge family called The King Family, they all sang and performed, It all started with the main ones, The King sisters. Well, today, the last of the King sisters passed away at 82. Funny, these days I guess that's considered YOUNG to be passing away. I forget which show Lucy was on and she joked about them, well, everybody joked about them, they were really famous at one time.

The older sister of the main character on That Seventies Show has passed away, WHILE IN REHAB, at the age of 43 I believe. Lisa Robin Kelly was her name.
