Lucille Désirée Ball was born on this day August 6, 1911, in the small town of Celoron, New York, a suburb of Jamestown.  Lucille Ball had become established as the most popular female comedian on television in the first half-century of prime-time television.  Only fifteen million television sets were to be found in American homes when I Love Lucy premiered during the 1951-1952 television season, three years later, that number had doubled.  Although she played a zany character on television, she was an intelligent,  very hard working, petit beautiful lady.  Lucille died on April 26 1989.  And yes, I Love  Lucy ♥
