Gotta say that I LOVE Lucy and Benny together.  Even better than Lucy and Bob Hope.  I love "Lucy and Jack Benny's Biography" and "Lucy Visits Jack Benny" especially.  And the thought of him (in real life) stealing their welcome mat periodically just kills me.

Also, I hope I don't offend anyone who enjoys the episodes I hate or call travesties.  Comedy is very subjective and I'm not commenting on anyone's taste but mine as to what makes me laugh vs. what makes me groan.  I don't mean to imply that I'm putting down people who like or love these eps.  Believe me, I wish I did love them too.  A lot of people worked hard on them and they should be enjoyed.

I enjoy any Lucy episode that has Jack Benny in it. He and Lucy have great chemistry together and it definitely shows on the episodes he appears in.


Speaking about Jack Benny, you do you know that he was Lucy's next door neighbor in real life?

Because we love them! Or, at least, I do - and yes that includes ALL of them not just the select one that has the word love in its title.

Yep, I heard that they would steal each other's welcome mats back and forth.  And such beautiful homes.  I used to go walking in Beverly Hills, and Roxbury Drive was one of my favorites.  And neither had a gate or anything.  You could walk right up and ring their bell, if you were so inclined (which I wasn't).  That would never happen today with such huge stars.

But anyways ... thank you for mentioning this. If it wasn't for your message, I probably would have not gone to Target and thus missed out on a great deal.
