...Back from Baltimore...

...Hi y'all!

Had a 'good' time in Baltimore...well, as good a time as you can have while working... but a pretty neat town, what I saw of it, anyway...

Hope everyone had a fun and safe Halloween! It was pretty cool that while driving to Baltimore on Halloween, we were routed 'off the beaten path' by MapQuest, and ended up passing thru an old town in Virginia with literally hundreds of folks out trick-or-treating...for some reason that art has been lost in my neck of the woods, so it was a cool experience for me, even just passing thru...

Well, as expected, I did have some 'VKM withdrawal' while away... so when I got back, asked my daughter to pick out a Ginger to watch...she chose 'It Had To Be You'...probably not my first choice, but still sounded better than whatever I was watching on vacation...and it may have been a good time to watch it. It really isn't THAT bad, and, even tho the plot is a bit weird, has some funny spots in it...of course, Ginger is gorgeous thruout, as usual... so overall, that one is growing on me.

Well, just thinking of some post topics for the next few days... will work something out shortly... any suggestions welcomed.

AND, a big G-ology welcome to 'ShabbyChicDiva'!!! Please feel free to comment!

  4. As far as I know, it is in Atlanta, Georgia... about a 3-hour drive from here.

    Next time I am over there, I really would like to see if they have 'tours' or whatever... and of course mention HCG!!!

  6. ...We can bombard them from all avenues! Honestly, I will try my best to 'get in' the next time I am over there...and rap with Robert Osbourne (as you have in the past...) "Hey, Rob, you need to dig deep and spin out Hat Check Girl for all these Gingerologists out here, cuz!" Not really scheduled to go there, but we might hit it for a vacation spot next summer... there is a lot in Atlanta, well, compared to the Ham, obviously...
