This Is What We Do Around Here For Fun...

Hi Friends,

Lucy is so sweet to treat us on her birthday to such a rocking concert. What about turning the tables just a little bit and treating Lucy to some entertainment of our own!?! We have some ultra talented friends in the crowd, and if the stage is set, how would you feel about combining forces and coming up with a few "acts" and trying to get in on the show as a birthday surprise?

One idea that comes to mind, is to think about the different decades of music that Lucy has enjoyed throughout her life. They are all distinct and lend themselves to great songs, costumes and props. What do you think about trying to do some kind of tribute to Lucy in the themes of the 1960's, 70's, 80's and 90's-present? Even magic or comedy?

There are 20 or so of us--and Ricky wants to be included, as well, so we could divide into teams, couples, girls only, boys only, whatever we are inspired to do.

Myself, I'm wondering if anyone would like to tackle the 80's and do a "Girls Just Wanna Have Fun" thing with me-- a la the school play's Daddy Lear--could be girls or guys? Any guys/couple want to do Sonny and Cher? Lady Gaga? Kiss? I don't know, this is all off the cuff and I haven't completely thought it through. I just wanted to throw this out there and see what people think. I know Lucy loves the talent shows, what do you say?

I am not a singer, an actor, or anything except silly. No pressure, only if you'd like to do it, but please let me know quickly, we don't have long to plan, collaborate and connive!
