I've been unfortunately neglecting G-ology the past few weeks, as there have been quite a few events which have popped up in September... the kids are in full swing at school, football season (BIG deal in South Gingerville), and my daughter is playing volleyball - doing pretty well for the first go-around with it! And of course homework is something we all collaborate on... so just hectic times, early bedtimes, etc... but hopefully things will 'settle in' in a few more weeks...just in time for the holidays! oof.
The big news, tho, is that Hu has to have 'outpatient' eye surgery tomorrow (September 19) - as a detached retina has reared its ugly head... left untreated it WILL result in losing eyesight, so... no alternative... SO... as a result, I'll be out of commission for a week or so... but, going to one of the best places in the world, literally, to do this - UAB - so no worries about the results. I told them to just knock me OUT and wake me when its OVAH!!!
So, with that, I'm planning to get back into the Gingery groove by the end of the month! In the meantime, y'all...
Keep It Gingery!

Hit this sentence for the link to WB Archives!
...hope y'all get to pick this one up...it's a pretty neat film... typical Joe E. Brown histrionics, but they're pretty funny in general... AND, hope everyone is well out there, and Keeping It Gingery, of course!!!

FIRST - the 'Ginger on TV' feature has been removed as a 'page' (the 'bullet point' links on the top right of the home page), and will now just be on the 'main page', which is the more direct route anyway...
SECOND - after a bit of indecision, the 'This Day in Gingerology' page (the 'complete year' list) has also been deleted, as the replication of adding items to it along with my 'main list' in my computer proved to be sketchy... but of course the feature itself will remain, and in fact will hopefully get a bit augmented if Hu's efforts are fruitful...
THIRD - just noticed it's been purt near a YEAR since the last GingerReview... which is pretty inexcusable... SO, I'm getting back with it, el pronto... stay tuned... no, REALLY... :-)
FOURTH - The GingerFaceBook Community is just incredible... SO much info to be had there, along with an ENDLESS array of GingerPics, such as the one below - which is one of my 'instant faves'!!! If you haven't already, ya REALLY need to join us over there...
...and oh yeah! I received my '4-R Milk Bottle' - pretty awesome! I haven't even taken it out of the 'bubble' wrap, but you can see thru it, and its awesome! Hope to be able to display it sooner or later...most likely when my boy 'Bam-Bam' is a good bit older... oh, like, 42 or something... ;-)
...We here at Gingerology sincerely hope everyone is having a Great Gingery Summer! Hope to see ya over on FaceBook, as well as here, of course...
It is my hope that I can continue to make 'G-ology' interesting and informative regarding the 'Beautiful Science' of VKM, which is SUCH a great topic!!! ...And remember, your comments are what make Gingerology click - so keep cranking them out!
Thanks again, JW
