GingerBinge summer continues with the apex of Ginger's career, her Academy-Award-winning performance as an office girl from the 'working side' of Philly, Miss Kitty Foyle... folks wonder which GingerFilm is my fave, and, while it's pretty impossible to choose, there's NO way Kitty could EVER be left out of the conversation. Also a bit weird I pulled this one directly after Perfect Strangers, in the sense that Dennis Morgan occurs in each... hmmm....
Well, this one has to get the attention it deserves, so... TENTATIVELY, I'm going to get the viewing in tomorrow and update the KittyFoyle blog... should be pretty fun.
As for the future, I have the two young 'uns headed back to school in a week or so, so... the viewings will predictably wane a bit, in favor of homework assistance... hope to keep up as much as possible, and the goal now is to view the rest of the GingerFilms by the end of the year... a reasonable goal, no???
Well, hope everyone out there is having a great summer (or winter, depending upon your spot on the orb), and of course, keeping it GINGERY!!!

Love To Change The World... or at least their world, as they hopelessly fall for each other... but extenuating circumstances may well prevent their desired harmonic convergence... (not sure why I am doling out all these hippie references... just Work With Me, Annie...)
Anyway, mosey on over to the PerfectStrangers blog for the ===POST=== regarding the GingerBinge viewing... and also make sure to check out the 'pages', as there are new screencaps, publicity stills, and even a few GIFs... I'm dangerous with that deal, y'alllllllll...
Hope everyone has a great week and weekend wherever you may be... and stay tuned on FB for the next 'filmpick' for the continuing GingerBinge Summer... which is invariably going to ooze into autumn... GingerAutumn sounds cool anyway, right?

...Hope everyone had a great weekend, including the Gingertennial+5 festivities! Honestly, we just cleaned up some around the house, which in some weird way I think Ginger would have appreciated...

And with that...hope all you Gingerologists out there have a great Gingery weekend!!!
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
