Ginger left us sixteen years ago...

...April 25, 1995. For the newer folks, and anyone else for that matter, it may be best to just link to last year's post, which I can't really add upon - and again, it's hard to even figure out a 'proper' picture to tack onto this post, so I won't try:

http://jwhueyblog.blogspot.com/2010/04/in-rememberance.html

Of course, this day is always a rough one for Gingerologists... but with this being the Gingertennial year, it's nice to know there have been and will be quite a few 'retrospectives' of her life, and that more new Gingerologists are being made each day.

The best way to spend today would be to watch a few of your fav GingerFilms... and that is what I am going to try my best to do... and maybe eat a bowl of ice cream in her honor... :- }

As always, y'all...

...KIG!

  6. At that time, when Ginger died, I had missed her all the time. I lived in a small town and hadn't the slightest idea how to get Classic Movies. Ginger's pictures were just a memory of those days when I admired her on my parent's TV.

    I must say, I am really blessed today, with all those Ginger films, and Ginger loving pals in the blog-world.

    Tomorrow starts TOP HAT in my private home cinema....

  8. ALD: Yep, now with the tornado stuff, April is officially my LEAST fav month (sorry to any April 'fans' out there...) I hope to catch up with everything soon (my internet at home is still out, and it's not a good idea to do much at work...) thanks for the info!

    GF11: hang in there with homework...you are almost through... then it's 'wall-to-wall' Ginger :)

    SG - well, I think VKM will forgive you... it's not a day that I circle, to be sure...but ya gotta at least 'recognize' it...

    Ron: correct, my friend...at least she was 'waltzing' up until her very last days, and still got out for events, even when wheelchair-bound...a great lady.

    SCD: Thanks for the post! I plan on 'catching up' on posts whenever my internet gets going again!

    CS: It IS so awesome to have 'classic' buds to yak with! And I hope to check out your Top Hat review soon...

    Kori: Thanks for the kind words! I won't mention that you commented on the day of the tornado :( ...but all things considered, we are well... things are definitely in 'perspective' after that...
