Still in Love with Lucy

Dear Fellow Lucy Fans,
Hope everyone had a safe and happy Labor Day holiday!
Oops! Mea Culpa!
A couple of weeks ago we mentioned that autographed, matted artwork from the recent Lucy festival in Jamestown, New York, is for sale -- and indeed it is! But we erroneously stated that these collectibles are available exclusively to members of the Lucy-Desi Museum. No so... They are for sale to everyone! But we were correct in saying these are "limited edition" of 50 -- so if you are interested, get yours today!

More Lucy Christmas Items...
We also mentioned in a recent newsletter that a new 2004 Christmas ornament is now available from Carlton Cards -- so it is only fair that we give "equal time" to the competition...
Indeed, Hallmark Cards has released its 2004 Lucy Keepsake ornament -- this one based on "Lucy's Italian Movie," with Lucy in the grape vat! The animated ornament is priced at $16.95 in US dollars; $22.95 in Canadian; and is available wherever Hallmark Keepsake Ornaments are sold. But if you are interested, be aware: these ornaments tend to sell out quickly!
On a related topic: Ric Wyman of the Lucy-Desi Museum and Gift Shop tells us that a new line of Lucy holiday cards will be available later this fall from Graphique de France. We will keep you posted when they are actually in the stores.
The September, 2003 issue of Reader's Digest includes an excerpt from author Stefan Kanfer's rather disappointing biography of our favorite redhead, "Ball of Fire." (We will have a complete review soon.) There are a handful of photos included, but the text is a truncated version of chapters in the book...
Web-site UpdateLast, and certainly least, we are in the midst of updating this web site... If you have suggestions on how to make the site more useful to you, please let us know. Many thanks!
See you next week!
