Herstoryan's Hearth: I Love Lucy "Pioneer Woman" (1952)



Growing up, Lucy and Ethel might as well been part of our family. My mother LOVED watching I Love Lucy. She laughed and she laughed and she cried and she laughed - and my sister and I laughed with her. The thing about laughter is that even when you recall it in a memory you can still feel all the happiness and joy of the moment. Here's a little piece of my childhood; I hope you enjoy it!  


In an episode called "Pioneer Woman" Lucy and Ethel make bread and butter!
