Saturday 9 ~ I Love Lucy ~ 7/14/18

I Love Lucy (1951)
Unfamiliar with this week's tune? Hear it here.

1) Before today, did you know that the "I Love Lucy" theme had lyrics?

No, I did not!

 2) Since its premiere in 1951, I Love Lucy has never been off the air. Are you a fan?
I've watched my fair share of I Love Lucy although not for quite a while.

 3) On the show, Ricky Riccardo supports his family by performing in a nightclub. Do you know anyone in show business?
Not personally.

 4) Lucy and Ricky's best friends are Fred and Ethel, their landlord and his wife. Are you friendly with your neighbors?

We live in the country but we are friendly enough with the neighbors to wave while passing in the car.

5) One of the most popular episodes has Lucy and Ethel working on the conveyor belt at a chocolate factory. When did you last have chocolate?   
Yesterday.  I had a donut with Peanut Butter filling and Chocolate Icing.

 6) Another famous episode has Lucy promoting Vitametavegimin. This tonic is made with vitamins, meat, vegetables -- and 23% alcohol. Do you read the ingredients statement before you take an over-the-counter medication? Or do you trust that it's safe because it's on the store shelf?
I confess that I don't usually read all the ingredients.

7) I Love Lucy was filmed before a live audience. Desi Arnaz (Ricky) always maintained he could identify the chuckle of his mother-in-law, who attended every taping. Do you know anyone who has a distinctive laugh?

I think everyone has their own distinctive laugh.  I can't think of anything outstanding at the moment.

 8) The show ended when the Lucille Ball/Desi Arnaz marriage ended. Have you ever had to choose sides when a couple broke up?
Not recently but I imagine it would be quite difficult.

 9) Random question -- You must eat the same dinner, every day, between now and Labor Day. An identical menu, no deviation. What will you be having?
Cracker Barrel's Chicken BLT and Mac-n-Cheese.  Yummmy!

  1. I didn't know it had lyrics either. And, I agree with you on #7. Everyone does have their own distinct laugh.

  2. Your dinner does indeed sound yummy. I've never had chicken on a BLT, but why not?

  3. I may need to go to Cracker Barrel. I don't think I've ever seen the chicken BLT on their menu, but then I admit I don't usually look at the sandwiches. I only get there once a year or so and I want something really southern or homestyle like catfish or chicken and dumplings or chicken fried steak. Not exactly healthy, but at least it's not very often. LOL

  4. Interesting donut you had. I like a Graham cracker with peanut butter and chocolate frosting on top. Yummy!

  5. I am like the only person who has never been to a Cracker Barrel. I know there is one located about a half hour away though.

  6. I eat at Cracker Barrel a lot and I don't remember ever seeing that sandwich. Now I shall have to look for it.
