I know, I know...
In the meantime, a few odds and ends...
First, thanks to Ron (yet again) for info regarding a 'festival' of Ginger Movies, to be shown at the Brattle Theatre, in Cambridge, Massachusetts (just northwest of Boston). The series runs from December 25th thru December 30th, 2011...here's the link:
GingerFilm Festival in Boston
The 'Backwards & in High Heels' Tribute is another awesome Gingery event in Boston...got to give props to Beantown!!!
...speaking of 'Backwards and in high heels', I was in a Hobby Lobby store yesterday with my daughter (I had been with her on a field trip, and we took off after lunch), and ran across this metal sign, which I have seen before, but knew at this point I HAD to buy, lest I never see it again:
And finally, I thought I had already posted this pic, but I guess not... it's in regards to an original movie poster I purchased on eBay for the GingerFilm, 'I'll Be Seeing You':
...AND, while we are on the Gingerbilia subject, y'all be sure to reply with whatever Santa or whoever else brings you that has Gingery Goodness to it... hope y'all get some good stuff!!!
Y'all just KIG!!!
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
