Taylor Posted August 5, 2017 Report Share Posted August 5, 2017 Today has been a blast so far. After breakfast, it was off to Celoron to catch the Summer Wind Cruise with Wanda. Sitting on the top of the boat, my Mom, Mike Elliott and I caught up with Taylor and Gypsy. Wanda once again had the crowd in the palm of her hand in another event hosted by Ric. This time, it was more of a show and tell with a “treasure chest” of objects being used to facilitate discussion. These artefacts included a photo of the full cast and crew of Here’s Lucy, a framed photo of Lucy and Gale, a Lucille Ball Productions ice bucket, and Carol Burnett clippings. It was great, and Wanda told some marvellous stories. For those keeping score, both statues of Lucy remain in place at Lucille Ball Memorial Park. Following the cruise, it was back to the Train Station to check out how we’re doing in the silent auction and take in the George Carlin exhibition. Very well done – and interactive! With that done, I went down the street to the Dykeman Young Gallery – one of my all-time favourite shops – to see their photographic exhibition of local Lucy landmarks and get lost in the vintage emporium. I came out of there with a framed vintage photo of a Jamestown streetscape featuring a truck promoting the upcoming premiere of Forever Darling, an autographed photo of Willard Waterman (it was a good deal) and five lobby cards from April In Paris with Doris Day and Ray Bolger. It pained me to leave behind another non-Lucy-related item and I am going to have to sleep on that one. It has been a quiet afternoon and evening, however, as I had to stay in the hotel and do a bit of work, but in between I’ve grabbed dinner and watched the biblical floods continue to unfold. I sat out the Trivia Contest for the first time ever. The antiseptic current format of the contest really leaves me cold. Next: The King of Queens and a Pub reunion with Shelly! Is everyone up for Taco Hut tomorrow? Looking at the schedule I think the time that would work for most people is 3.30 p.m. Thoughts? 3:30 sounds good.
