Cleone and Juanita stomp grapes dressed as Lucille Ball and the Italian woman in the "I Love Lucy" episode # 150 called "Lucy's Italian Movie." A competition at LaVelle Vineyard (Elmira, OR) on September 26, 2010 included stomping grapes to see who could get the most juice and a "Dress as Lucy" competition. Cleone as Lucy and Juanita as the Italian woman (some thought she was Ethel - they hadn't looked at the episode lately) (Cleone called Juanita her "Mexican Italian Ethel Prop") set the bar high for next year's competition! And Cleone realized her dream of 54 years to stomp grapes dressed as Lucy - since April 16, 1956 when the grape stomping episode was aired for the first time.
Between publishing books, my husband and I love to travel; and via the internet, we try to keep up with our business from wherever we are. Loving photography and having a life full of so many wonderful friends and family members, we take literally thousands of pictures a year. Loving to work with the blurb software, making books is my new thing. They take up so little room in comparison to the big cumbersome photo albums I have made over the years. I am hooked!
