We did go today to a local water park, and had a blast... Although Huey is REALLY feeling those 44 years he has under his belt...oof.
The plan of 'attack' tomorrow will be to hit Moore St. first, then the general area around there ( the Sand Bldg is a good idea, Maggie!) Then may try to figure out if anything else is cooking in Independence regarding the Gingertennial... I forgot to mention there are a few things I found going on in L.A. for the G-tennial, so check your local listings.
I will definitely take a heap of pics, and might try a video, but honestly not much 'action', unless I am run off by an angry homeowner! But, I will have to sort those out upon my return...the iPhone is cool, but I'm just not up to speed enough on it.
So, until tomorrow, hoping everyone has an unforgettable Gingertennial, and I am ready to get everything posted! Sorry I haven't responded to y'all the last few days, but looks like a lot of cool links I want to check out!
Hope to have an 'epic post' tomorrow!
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
