Home Again!

I thought I'd give you a little tour around town to complete this "series". There is a celebration every August for Lucy's birthday. You can read all about it here. As you can see, this is the Gift Shop. Since these pictures were taken, the gift shop has moved across the street to the museum store front. Across the street is the Lucy Desi Museum/Playhouse. The sets from the "I Love Lucy "show plus many other treasures are in here. The top floor has been turned into Desi's club. There was a contest this year to celebrate what would have been Lucy's 100th birthday. One couple from Ohio won a free wedding in the 'Club' to be in August.
This mural is painted on the Post Office.
(Mural pictures taken by Chris & Laurie)
This one is on a parking ramp.This one is when they worked in the candy factory.
In 2002, Lucy's remains were moved here to be with her relatives.
I hope you have enjoyed the tour! If you ever decide to come to Lucy's hometown for a real tour, just let me know and Lloyd and I will show you around!

Jean, I have so enjoyed this tour with you! I've been to the chocolate factory; naturally, there is a photos of Lucy and Ethel stuffing their faces =)

I think we should select a date and have a big party there together!
