~I LOVE LUCY~

OH!! girls today is going to be a fun day in blogland... As all our TARGET birds are having a hoilday...To see what all these fine feathers friend's are up to Please go by Susan's at BETWEEN NAPS ON THE PORCH they are flying every where today...Oh my maybe I should wear a hat with all these birds flying by today....











Lucy and Ethel were the best of friends...Oh these two birds lived next door to each other and never went one day without visiting each others nest.... One day Ethel flew over to Lucy's and said" GUESS WHAT "Fred said I could go on a hoilday...But I would have to earn my own money to go...Fred was a real CHEEP skate, Lets do a ROMAN hoilday!!....Oh Ethel I can't go right now girl....I am with Egg...



Oh Lucy's Husband Ricky was so excited...they all watched over this sweet little egg day and night until one day....


It Hatched !!! it was a little Baa-Baa-Lou....



Now!! the girls in order to earn money took a job at the chocolate factory, wrapping candies as it cames off the line...





They had planned on flying to Rome...but Lucy Said will be to tired if we fly" lets take a Cruise ship " So they set sail..... After all we have to be back by Tablescape Thursday lol!!


The weather was beautiful in Rome...The girl's spend time on the Beach...


Had Lunch and Tea at a mountain Villa...


Did allot of shopping, Lucy bought some fine italian leather Pump's . Oh but Ricky got so Mad as Lucy spend all their money...He told Lucy you better get a job or we'll have to fly home...instead of taking the ship..



So Lucy went to the local vineyard and got a job as a grape crusher...they gave her a uniform...



Introducer her to her Co-worker..."BIG ROSA" Now you could tell right off Big Rosa did not like Lucy...(skinny American girl) How could she crush grapes....



But Lucy being Lucy...went right to work stumping and stumping those grape to make Vino...While Big Rosa watched her !! Lucy finally made passage for home...






They are had so much fun on their ROMAN Hoilday....finally their ship docked and Ricky said "HEY LUCY" were home...Lucy said "God Bless America" Now Ethel we need to get back to our nest and our Thursday Tablescapes duties...


May all of you have a Great day...and Please go by and see all the other TARGET Birds that flew the nest today....

Hugs and smiles Gl♥ria

Really Rainey said...

Oh my gosh I am crackin up at your post today! Looks like you had SO much fun! How creative! I had to show Hubby! We Love Lucy!

I posted this on my blog but wanted to add it here to make sure you saw it:

"Gloria, Yes, you can use this for a spa tub too... But you have to watch your PH and adjust it when necessary cause you are adding salt. But we use it in our outdoor spa tub all the time. But for a serious soak to help with muscle tension or detox, use it in the bathtub and use about a cup of salts. You can also uses half Epsom and half sea salt if you like... its a little more expensive but not much and its really good for you! Also you don't have to color the salts, they are pretty white too. I do because they look pretty in my blue/white bathroom and like I said, it won't stain your skin. If you need a source for essential oils let me know and I will e-mail you a web site. ~Hugs~
Love Rainey

Hi Gloria, Thanks for stopping by. Glad that Kyra continues to be a fighter. She is just a beautiful baby. After I read this yesterday, I saw a show done by our cable carrier on TV's 50 sexiest males of all time. Guess what--Desi was #50! Tom Selleck was #1.
