Return of Huey...various musings...
ANYWAY... some good stuff now - First, my baby boy Reed was dedicated in church today...he did great - when the preacher got to us, he held him and said a few words, and Reed reached out and grabbed his nose...the congregation cracked up...was pretty funny - some pics are out there somewhere, if I run one down, will post it.
Second - got some pretty good yard work done on Saturday - was much needed... I am NOT a big yard workin' person... don't necessarily mind DOING it, but just am not GOOD at it...anything I plant croaks within a week...
OK, before this blog COMPLETELY turns into a 'Facebook' type deal, I have added a few Ginger pictures which are favs - all out of one book - I just scanned them in - not the best quality, but hopefully you get the picture (ba-dum-dah)... generally capturing her 'beginnings', 'heyday', and 'autumn' of her career, each in GRAND fashion, IMHO...
Ginger note...I watched 'Having Wonderful Time' today... it's a very cute movie, but the case of my copy has a 'poster' label which notes that Ann Miller was in it...I was actually watching with my Mom and Daughter, and Ma never saw Ann in it anywhere... is this an erroneous listing, or did we miss something?
OK - one last thing - will be doing more posting and other (hopefully) cool stuff soon... I have a few tests to take on the 15th, and probably will be in better shape after those... please be patient, y'all!
hope you are all doing well!
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
