PG Huey is pretty dang jazzed...
As a result, I just loaded the entire audio files from 'Ginger: My Story', which is Ginger reading various excerpts from the book - it is pretty neat to listen to, even though Ginger sounds pretty old in it - heck, it was recorded in 1991! Specifically, July 2nd, 3rd, and 4th... just days away from her 80th birthday!!! So keep that in mind when you are listening...
Anyway, hope you enjoy those files - just click on any one to play - I (hopefully) have the 'autoplay' set to off - it seems to be set that way - cause nothing is more of a 'startle' than to click on a site and music or whatever starts blaring out at you.
Speaking of music, oh yes, there will be GingerTunes aplenty... I have to make some 'mp3' tracks from old LPs... hopefully 'adding' a second 'player' will not pose a problem...
ok - that is all! Hope y'all dig the excerpts!
Keep It Gingery in the Summer of Ginger!!!
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
