Hey, did anybody make it to...
GingerCar on Display - March 9-11, 2012
BTW - Lady F! I guess I need to go back and check on comments - sorry Lady!!! I do agree that even tho the car is black and white, it still shows up so well in 'color'...maybe the chrome highlights are the diff.
And here's some recent info on a show featuring Ginger and Fred tunes, somewhere in Australia...would be pretty cool - if there's any 'Down Under' Gingerologists afoot, hope you can check this out and report! :
Pam Lawson - Ginger and Fred tunes in South Australia
And, in my Googling of Miss Rogers, I ran across this neat pic - pretty nice job of 'colorization', but...dude...Ginger would have used the PINK tennis balls, no doubt! :
GingerTennis - colorized pic
...and here's the 'original', for contrast and comparison:
Well, that's it for now... still busy at work, but 'stabilizing' somewhat... I'm starting up on 'Twenty Million Sweethearts' for review next, which is a pretty good one...if memory serves, Ginger plays a pretty 'general' female lead in this one, but it has some nice moments, for sure. I was happy to see that whilst Googling, the 'Finishing School' review showed up on the first page of results! Hopefully this results in more Gingerologists!
OK, hope the 'Odds and Ends' presented here is of interest... In the 'good intentions' department, I hope to be adding a 'link' feature to the site soon, as there are really quite a few neat GingerLinks that need to be accessed...most likely in a 'page'. (All this technical jargon is making me woozy!) ...so, until then,
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
