Welcome to 2011...The GingerCentennial festivities have offically begun!
...well...hiyahiyahiya, y'all!!! ...first of all, sorry for the 'down time' between posts... I have not really had much happening, other than trying to get back to 'normal' from the holidays (although it is sleeting here as we speak, and by morning 3-4 inches of snow is expected, thus throwing the 'normal' thing back off for a few days...oh well...) ...anyway - hope everyone had a tremendous holiday season! Just rummaging through all my 'Gingerbilia', and found this beauty of a pic above, which I am guessing is from Barkleys... due to the hair, and also the eyebrows (yeah, we are REALLY Gingerologists, y'all...:-] )
The year 2011, of course, marks the 100th since Ginger's birth...and to celebrate, Gingerology will hopefully have lots of cool stuff going on...I have had a few things 'developing' for awhile now... and should be ready to get rolling on them!
Someone asked HOW will Gingerology celebrate on 07/16/11... well, the plan is... to be in Independence, Missouri - at 100 West Moore Street, of course - SOMETIME on the day of July 16, 2011... it just seems to be the right place at the right time... my wife has a cousin who lives in Kansas City, and we have been wanting to get up there to see her anyway... so it's really quite feasible, y'all... more info as it becomes available. I also just want to check out the archives or whatever there and see what kind of Gingery goodness I can unearth...
Here's a brief article and pic regarding Ginger's birth house..she lived there about a year or so, if I remember correctly... it's not extremely clear in her bio. I think this has actually been posted before, but...here ya go again:
OK - well, I am off now to prep for the 'blizzard' or whatever it is that's approaching nigh... hope all of you are faring well - it seems to be hitting everything east of the Mississippi. Stay hunkered down and fuzzy!!! :-] and of course, be sure to also...
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
