...Nice to be back, Y'all!
...Ginger over the net is always a nice image!!!
Well, FIRST, everything in my town is well under the 'cleanout and recovery/rebuild' mode, which is good to see, but of course sad as well in that so many houses that were here are now...just vacant lots. Thanks again to all of y'all for keeping the area in thoughts and prayers...there's still quite a ways to go for folks here, and in many other places.
NOW, as for Gingerology...dang, it's been a while! Not sure what has been eating into my 'G-ology' time, but will definitely make up for it over the next few days...I've been thinking of quite a few topics and features to spring on y'all, so get ready...hope it will be fun for y'all!
As for 'blogger', well, heck...it's changed... think I know the issue - I 'updated' Internet Explorer, and it appears that the Blogger Post Editor does not 'support' it or whatever... so now I am on FireFox, which is recommended by the blogger gurus...heck, y'all may be all using that anyway... the 'preview' of this post looks ok, but will it be in the 'classic G-ology' style? We shall soon see... if not, well, I'll figure it out, I reckon...
OK, enough tech jibber-jabber... I came home one afternoon to see this pic on the table in an OLD People Magazine (I did the 'cropping' with 'Paint' in the most archaic way imaginable...I guess I need to get into Photoshop, eh?):
It was the 1995 'Tribute' section of their 'year-end' issue - sad, but I'm happy to have it - it was from my mom's stash of old mags - she used to subscribe to People - now she says "I don't KNOW any of the new people in People!" :-]
Anyway, it was interesting (and again, sad) to see all the other folks who died in 1995, including - Mickey Mantle, Elizabeth Montgomery (Bewitched), Howard Cosell (of Monday Night Football fame), Eva Gabor, Jerry Garcia (BTW, 'Cherry Garcia' is MY fave ice cream flavor! :-] ), Lana Turner, Burl Ives (Holly-Jolly Christmas), Wolfman Jack, and last but certainly not least, Ida Lupino.
Kinda neat to read what Mickey said about Ginger...kind of interesting they never teamed up on anything - that would have probably been a hoot!
Well, I'm just glad that I have been able to 'post' on here...not sure WHAT will happen with the movie reviews...speaking of which, guess we were at a pretty good 'stopping point' with Hat Check Girl...I will probably just shoot out the 'specs' for HCG, but of course, no review... and then on to the next one as usual.
OK - again, I am ready for more posting - there's lots of stuff and ideas rattling around in my noggin, so get ready, y'all...it IS GingerTennial, after all...
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
