...Just a few pics...
Well, It's been a few, y'all...not sure why, guess I have been a bit busier than I thought... but I am raring to jump back into it here, and should have the next review up in a few days...I already have the 'bones' to it set up... it does take a few days to do the review, do 'caps', and sort out everything for the final post... not that I'm complaining or anything - it's really a perfect way to get 'max info' from each movie, and hopefully become that much closer to the title, 'Supreme-super-duper-grand-poo-bah-uber-Gingerologist' (yeah, that's gonna be tough to get on one of those little trophy nameplates).
Speaking of 'uber-G-ologists', here's hoping we get a few to attend the Ginger Century Exhibition in Boston on 10/24 and 10/25 (yeah, that's a huge sigh of despair emanating from the Hu-ster, knowing the impossibility of his attendance chances...) Well, here's a link to it again, in case you missed it:
Ginger Rogers Century Exhibition - Boston 10-24 and 25
And, lastly, hope all of you are well out there! Hope to hear from y'all... jump on the replies for this post...we'll yak about whatever!
And, a sincere and heartfelt thanks to all who follow!
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
