Lucy made it fun for us redheads to be proud of our ginger looks. She chose a color many of us were born with. Always thought that was so cool.

I hate to age myself but I remember seeing the first I love Lucy show around 1952 or 1953. It was on a black and white tv in Cleveland Ohio. I was hooked for life. There is no one like our Lucy, oh and Ricky too!!!
