LucyFest 2017

Joyce,

that last part kinda bothers me, so what if she's paid to come to the festivals? I doubt anyone else is doing it for nothing; at the very least, they're likely having their expenses (i.e. travel, hotel, meals) covered and why shouldn't they?  Maybe I'm missing something here but to most life-long fans (and being a big personal fan of The Lady herself, having met her first when I was a "kid" in my 20s!), having Wanda Clark's (continued) participation and involvement in these events should certainly be considered a draw, if not a coup! 

 

Yup.... always loved Wanda, always will! :lucycoy:

 

Have NO PROBLEM with guests being paid!   Sorry you assumed I did/do.... :(

 

This was an issue with arrdubya being gone; and what I was told about her non-appearance(s) feelings; the Center was hurting . . . BAD . . . after the max exodus of family, board members; no director; one hired; didn't last long; still $$ problems until Journey came on board and the 'family' began their 'faith' in same with the self-appointed several board(s) of Directors; we have some good ones now, I believe; but, the whole $$ thing until the Comedy Center came into planning stages and $$ returning. 

 

Let's get this straight; early years we had, for about 5 years, a million(!!!) $ mail order catalog purchase business [PER YEAR!!!!]; I did filing for same, and believe me, that kept money in the coffers (or somewhere close); heard some hard rumors about that, too; (and from the person, also a FORMER, who ran the department. The mail order department soon closed; employees laid off; etc.

 

So much has been swept under the rug on the early years, at this point in time, it's sad to even remember; but, if he's working his way back in, there will be more 'difficulties', believe it!  I'm still CONCERNED, VERY CONCERNED!  Loving you, JK :fabrary:

I heard Robert interviewed a few years back and the question if he had met Lucy while doing TPOS came up. He called her Big Red as some did and if I recall it was outside the theatre. He said nice things.

Robert Klein and Kevin James have been added to the lineup!

 

http://www.post-journal.com/news/page-one/2017/05/kevin-james-robert-klein-added-to-2017-comedy-fest-lineup/

 

If Klein is coming, I wonder if Lucie will pop in.

 

From Palm Springs to Jamestown is quite a "pop"! :blink:

Hopefully .... she doesn't fly United! :HALKING:

 

(Wonder if she ever charters a plane for ocassions such as this?? Seems it'd be much easier since I know of no direct flights from here to there!)

Since the Post-Journal mentions a Desi Arnaz Birthday tribute event is part of the festivities, it wouldn't surprise me Lucie will be a surprise guest.  Time will tell.  Thanks, Brock, for posting the article.  JK :fabrary:

Posting it here first, before any rumors get out. I will be making my return to Lucyfest this year. I don't have any plan really so I'm free if anyone wants to get into any shenanigans.

Need you even ask?! :HALKING: :HALKING: :HALKING:

 

Will you be accompanied by Mr. Zimmerman accompanying you on the train the studio is sending for a big star like you?

No, Mr. Zimmerman will be gathering with his fans in the train world to offer a select few a master class and a peak inside his world of being a railfan celebrity.

 

The studio is sadly not doing well these days so they are asking I get my own transportation.

As I live vicariously (not to mention 3,000 miles away), here's hoping there's copious blogging, candid (photo) shots and even videos, Facebook "live" or otherwise!  

 

Hoping all going have safe & sane journeys and a WUNDAFUL time upon arrival and whilst in attendance. :HALKING:
