Welp, here's the caps I had of the scene where Pony and Virginia are yakking back and forth from their beds, with their lamps under the covers...which again makes me cringe a bit, since I'm into the code stuff, y'know... but, these are still pretty cool pics (all of Ginger, of course...sorry Francis Dee fans...)
...speaking of which, not sure if y'all caught this cool link from Ron, regarding Whitney Houston's 'Gingerbilia' story...
Whitney Houston and Ginger Rogers' shoes
Pretty cool story, and just that much more sad about Whitney knowing she was a Gingerologist...
...well, anyway, hope y'all have a great big Gingery weekend!!! I'll be doing some work from..well, work this weekend...AND I have to babysit tomorrow...AND I have a test tomorrow morning (continuing education stuff for...you guessed it...codes!) ...so, all THAT to say, no post this weekend, unless something weird happens... but I'll be back... with Gingery Vengeance!!! HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!
...(ahem)......until that time,
Keep It Gingery, y'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
