It was today, back in 1989, that the world lost a legendary entertainer-Lucille Ball.  Lucille Desiree Ball was born in Jamestown, New York back in August of 1911.  From what I read, Ball lived in Western New York until she was 3 years old.  At that point, her parents decided to pack up and head for Montana and then on to Michigan.  For those of you who are old enough to remember the woman and some of her work, here’s a lil treat for you……
