Well, just some assorted things...

...first, hope y'all got to watch 'Follow the Fleet' early this morning... I honestly did not...but I figure most of y'all are pretty familiar with that one anyway... :-)

...second, as for the poll! Fifth Avenue Girl was a close winner! I was glad to see each entry get multiple votes....each one was pretty cool in their own way. Thanks for all the input and votes...hope to have another poll going soon.

...third, I will be heading out of town this Saturday for a week...unfortunately, I am not as 'totally portable' as most of y'all in regards to e-mail, texting, etc... so will probably not have much activity on the G-ology Blog for a bit... although I will try to sneak something in!

...fourth, a big G-ology welcome to our newest follower, Blondie! You should have no problems fitting in here, since EVERYONE here seems to prefer the blonde Ginger to the 'dark-haired' Ginger... welcome aboard!

...fifth, after thinking about it, I won't be back before 'Primrose Path' airs on 11/5, so y'all be sure to catch that one...it's a bit different for Ginger, but she does well in a dramatic role...really was her 'warm-up for Kitty Foyle, IMHO...

anyway, that's it... for now.

Hope everyone has a cool Halloween!

Until a bit later,

  1. The couple of times I've tried to record Primrose Path I either plum forgot or something else went wrong...not missing it this time! I've only seen it once, 15+ years ago back when AMC actually played old movies, lol.

    Have a good trip!

  3. ...the FiestyFiend appears on G-ology! Well, we are fine with that... she seems to be a good ol' gal! Of course, she is nowhere NEAR the angelic stature of Miss Fioraon...

  4. Gingerella - thanks for the greeting - it was a good trip, considering it was a 12-hour drive, and it rained about 80% of the trip up... really was ok.
    Did you get Primrose Path? hope so...I really like that one - Ginger is quite different in it, which I like to see every now and then...

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
