Dedicated to Lucille Ball and Desi Arnaz.
I don't own any of these pictures unless stated otherwise. It's really hard to find these pictures so if you like them please reblog and don't save and post it as your own... Feel free to leave comments, questions, concerns, etc.

 


Lucille Ball with a kitten, circa 1940. Lucy kept  five cats at her 1930s residence, and six cats on her ranch with Desi. In her autobiography, she wrote, “Cats I admire because of their independence. ‘So you’re home again, who gives a damn?’ my cats seem to be saying when I walk in the door.”

Happy Birthday Lucille Desiree Ball | August 6, 1911 - April 26, 1989

“She is one of the few individuals in history to be on a solely first name basis with the world: Marilyn, Elvis, Lucy. She was a national treasure. She remains a world icon, recognizable from Tallahassee to Timbuktu from Paduach to Peru. No other performer in any medium of either sex has inspired the devotion and generated the international love and appreciation that she has. Said one admirer: “Lucy…is a common denominator for nations, continents, and hemispheres, doing in entertainment what others have not accomplished in professional diplomacy.” - Women Pioneers in Television

"The sun never sets on Lucille Ball. All over this worried world tonight, nations of untold millions are watching reruns they also watched the first time around. Joy requires no translation. God wanted the world to laugh, and he invented you. Many were called, but you were chosen. All of the funny hats, the baggy pants, the mustaches and the wigs, and the pratfalls and and the blacked out teeth - they didn’t fool us one minute. We saw through all the disguises, and what we found inside is more than what we deserve." - Sammy Davis, Jr.

"She’s given the world so much darn enjoyment, Lucille Ball is the best loved star in show business." - Ed Sullivan

"One of the greatest gifts to mankind is laughter, and one of the greatest gifts to laughter is Lucille Ball. God has her now, but thanks to television, we’ll have her forever." - Bob Hope
