...um... ...what month is this again?

...um... guess I've got some explaining to do, lest I incur the wrath of Miss Glory... well, it's really been pretty hectic the last few months, with the young 'uns in school, and thus a nightly regimen of homework and getting ready for bed...  add to this the fact that my work is quite busy as well, and... seems like time is just flying away...

So, it's been kinda hard to find time to dedicate to Gingerology...
...um... yeah she's not buying that at all... ...a total, albeit not so systematic, dismantling of the Tower of Huey's Record Books...  it's gonna take a LOT of work to get back in good graces... ...on a side note, I've never seen anyone look more beautiful whilst tossing tomes at twits...

So, with that, I'll keep ducking, and try to get back on track here, y'all... hope all is well with everyone out there - I think most of y'all are over on FaceBook, and the group over there (well, there's several GingerGroups, but one of the larger ones is 'It's a Ginger Thing), so we are in touch or whatever... but this blog needs to keep rolling, right?

...ah, better already... So, with that, everyone Keep It Gingery - and we'll get more Gingery Goodness on here soon!!!

...Ginger and Freddie are ready... with quite stylish eclipse-ready eye-wear (yes, ISO Certified, per the rigorous test procedures of  HTLI (Huey Testing Laboratories Internationale))... Hope y'all are ready as well, and hope those within the 'band' or whatever enjoy clear skies and SAFE viewing!!! I am quite a bit gun-shy about viewing directly, no matter the apparatus available, two eye surgeries later...so I'll just catch up on social media (...I DO hope SOMEBODY videos it. and then posts it...  :-)  ).
Miss Fortune is also going to check out the phenomenon... with the same Huey-approved specs, of course... it's another title for Huey - Miss Rogers' Protective Eye-wear Technician (PET)... um... yep, I am VERY happy being Miss Rogers' PET... ;-)

KIG, y'all!!!

The Day of Ginger on TCM is upon us!!!

...well, it's always an awesome thing for TCM to show ANY GingerFilm, but when she is one of the 'Summer of Stars' subjects, thus garnering an entire DAY of her films, it's really a cause for celebration!
...well, the 'list' is conveniently provided in the 'Ginger on Television' section above... hopefully some of y'all can 'obtain' some of those films you have yet to see... for some of us, we are just waiting for the airing of Hat Check Girl (It WILL happen one day, y'all...)... but in the meantime, it's fun to just sit back and watch all Ginger, all Day... only way it would be cooler is if were on a Saturday or Sunday... Friday isn't bad - you can always sneak out of work early, right?
...as for the lineup, it's really a pretty nice cross-section of her career... NO 42nd Street or Gold Diggers of 1933 here, which is actually apropos, as, although Ginger was awesome in both, let's face it, she was not the main character in either, and really didn't get much face time in either, especially '33'... additionally, only three Freddie films are included - Rio, Top Hat, and Follow the Fleet, which has Ginger's first solo dance number in the G&F series. Not really sure if Rio is the best pick here - yeah it was G&F's first go-round, and Honey Hale is Da BOMB, but... I would probably sub out with Carefree...
...yepyepyep...shure would...

And, as to the 'true solo' GingerFilms, all chosen are pretty awesome - well, a few get under my skin as to plot (Chance at Heaven does NOT make sense, y'all.. I would probably 'replace' it with In Person or Vivacious Lady) ...but it's cool that they are showing a few which are not in the regular 'GingerRotation' at TCM, like Twenty Million Sweethearts, Tight Spot, and Dreamboat...she really is so gorgeous in this one, and it's really kind of funny how they do the 'silent film' sequences...

SO...overall a pretty nice slate (no such thing as a BAD GingerFilm, right? ...well, at least the GINGER parts... ) so, just set the DVR / VCR / whatever you have, and hopefully capture the GingerFilms you need... I might just load up my DVR on the big screen downstairs... can't have too many back-ups, right?

Well, hope everyone is doing well out there... We have had a good bit going on here with sorting through all of my in-law's belongings - over 40 years in the same house tends to accumulate LOTS of stuff... been tough on Mrs. Huey having to let go of stuff... but it's almost complete, and with her brother moving in the house, it helps out a good bit as to the transition (it's next door to us).

So, keep us in thoughts and prayers a bit for some sense of closure, at least in the 'physical realm'...

And until later...

...Happy 106th!!!

Well, it's hard to believe it's been six years since GingerTennial! But yet here we are... still hanging in for the most part, and still celebrating Our Girl's date of birth!  Wish the GingerFest would have happened this year... hopefully Miss Missouri Marge will get things ready for a 2018 rollout!

For now, tho, celebrate by doing Gingery stuff... of course, ice cream... and if so inclined, playing tennis (you may want to reverse the order of those two, tho ;-) ) ...and try to work in a GingerFilm or two... honestly, y'all, it's been a few since I've watched one... I need to make up for lost time!

Thanks to all of y'all out there who follow Gingerology... I know it hasn't been too active lately, but hopefully that will change... but life is quite 'loaded' at times... STILL not an excuse for being tardy in all things Ginger...

KIG, y'all!
