    I pledged to write about Lucy and Desi (Frankly, My dear) but unfortunately a large stream of personal problems have come my way in the past few days and I won’t be able to hold up my end of the deal. I’m so sorry for flaking. Thanks for hosting this great blogathon and I look forward to commenting on and reading the contributions when “real life” doesn’t get in the way. I felt like I should let you know. My apologizes!
