Seventeen Years Ago...
It's a very somber day for all Gingerologists - honestly, it's best to just reflect on her incredible life, and celebrate her greatness... so maybe spin a few Ginger movies today and remember all the Gingery goodness that she gave us to brighten up our lives, as well as those of future generations... it's so awesome that technology will 'preserve' most of her work for those future Gingerologists.
And to just present something a bit 'different' on this day that some of you may have not seen...here's a 'cartoon' editorial from Mike Peters, the dude who does 'Mother Goose and Grimm'...he is also an 'editorial cartoonist', and he did this one after Ginger's death...at first, you think..."er, a cartoon about the passing of someone?" ...but, after looking at it a bit...
Thanks to all the Gingerologists out there who are keeping her memory and legacy alive for future generations... That's my mission with this blog, and hopefully it will continue to be a 'source' for all things Ginger Rogers - but Y'ALL are really what makes this thing possible and work so well - great work.
As always, and ESPECIALLY today...
Keep It Gingery,
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
