Luuuccccyyyyy!!!!!!!

Tonight there was a fundraiser's held all over the country at Chili's restaurants. The fund raiser was being held for St. Jude's. All proceed taken in tonight were donated to St. Jude's Children's hospital.

We have a special little boy that goes to our church that went to St. Jude's. His name is Hunter. Please click on his name and go read his story. Today he is cancer free. The work that St. Jude's does is so awesome. They have helped so many lives.

At the Chili's I went to tonight, there were some very famous guest's that arrived to support the cause.

In case you don't recognize them, that's Lucy and Ethel with the manager of Chili's, Donny , A/K/A MeMe Lorie's Son-in-Love.

Oh they had a big time those two. They went around talking to everyone.

They even sang Karaoke! You will not believe what they sang. "Its My Party" by Lesley Gore. Lucy was told by Ricky not to sing, so she got away with this by having Ethel Sing and she just threw in a cry or two at the chorus. Lots of Whaaaaaaaaaaaaa's.

Now Hunter though, he sang some Karaoke! They sang "Who let the Dogs Out", Hunter is the little Cutie up front.

Now I know from first hand account that is took Ethel a little bit to get ready. She was having a very difficult time, until Lucy came along. She was having a really bad hair day and was looking a bit more like a really messed up Marilyn Monroe more than Ethel.

At one point she even seemed to be looking a bit like Barbara Bush. It was a very scary sight. Then Lucy got there and started fixing Ethel's hair for her.

Here they are trying to decide what kind of jewelry to put on.

Overall it was a terrific evening, even if Ethel looked like Barbara Bush, or a really messed up Marilyn Monroe. I can't wait to find out how much money our Chili's raised this year.

Hmmmm, I wonder where Lucy and Ethel will show up next?? All I know is before they show up anywhere Ethel needs to get her hair done, its looking pretty bad. No offense Ethel. :)'

Looks like you provided some quality entertainment for a very deserving cause.

The Barbara Bush look is awesome.

You guys are so cute regardless of the hair “do”.

Ethel, You and Luce are a pure hoot. When I get phone solicitations I always tell them I give to St. Judes and locally to Juniors House. Since I can't go to trunk for treat this year, you will have to take lots of pictures. Remember why I can't go? Keep on having fun.

Well, my comment just disappeared without a name. But the 'puter said it was saved. Anyhoo, it was kinda long and I'm not going to repeat it. So my name was Mama, of course.
