A few things...

...bonking around in my noodle at the present time...


...well, guess it's time for the ol' "Cabana Boy" to shock the pool for the summer again, eh, Miss Rogers?

...first off, I plan to be getting back to the reviews in a day or two... but in the meantime, to recap the 'current rankings' of the "General Gingeryness" of the first ten of her career:

#1 - The Tenderfoot
#2 - The Tip-Off
#3 - Queen High
#4 - Young Man of Manhattan
#5 - Carnival Boat
#6 - The Thirteenth Guest
#7 - The Sap From Syracuse
#8 - Suicide Fleet
#9 - Follow the Leader
#10 - Honor Among Lovers

AAANNDDD, since we don't have it, "Hat Check Girl" must be regulated to the bottom spot for now, cause, it has to be noted SOMEWHERE, right?
Hopefully it will show up soon, as the reviews I've read sound pretty favorable...but until then,

#11 - Hat Check Girl


...sorry, Jessie... er, that's Ginger's character's name in HCG...

Next up is 'You Said a Mouthful', Ginger's second film with Joe E. Brown...from what I remember of my first viewing of it, it isn't as 'Gingery' as Tenderfoot, but then again, the reviews have good things to say about her role, so maybe a second view will be profitable.

---

...OK, as for the 'post editor' deal on 'blogger'...where the heck did the COLOR and FONT SIZE options go? This is REALLY going to limit my movie review 'format'... well, it's no big deal, if y'all are cool with it...or, do I need to try to load the 'new' editor again? er...I think I'll wait and receive feedback from y'all concerning this...which will be greatly appreciated, BTW...

---

Well, hope y'all are all OK... looks like summer has gotten folks out and about, thus a bit less blogging, as far as I can tell, anyway... hey, I'm off on vacation starting 6/18... to Gatlinburg - Smoky Mountains in Tennessee...pretty cool area.


...yep, time to head for the mountains, y'all! :-]

Which reminds me - I need to post up on the Independence trip...looks like it's a definite GO, y'all...so stay tuned for that, too...

In the meantime, tho...

KIG, y'all!!!
