Armed Forces Day...

...a BIG, BIG THANKS to ALL the folks past, present, and future who served, serving, or will serve, sacrificing GREATLY for our freedom! Be sure to thank those you know in the Armed Forces today! Here's a few 'patriotic' pics of our girl...seems like there's LOTS more, but...guess I need to get a bit more 'organized' (more on that a bit later...):

...well, hope y'all are having a Gingery Weekend... stay tuned for a BIG development regarding how Gingerology is 'expanding'...GREATLY!  (no, it's not a 'money' deal or anything...just more 'avenues' to take for Gingery goodness!)

Until then,

...Keep it Gin-jah-REE!!!!!



  1. OH WOW, Huey!!! I had read about pilots in World War 2 having pictures of Ginger on their planes but never saw a photo of it. That picture is AWESOME! Where on earth did you find it?

  2. ...well, ya know, I guess I should write down when and where I get this stuff...dang it! It was from a blog, that much I know... In fact, it MAY have been from Ron's 'Fluffy Stuffin'...

    But it's pretty awesome, no doubt...in fact, something's telling me this was a recent pic...so this bird is most likely out there somewhere...

    KIG, Lady F!

  3. Huey, it's great to have so many people out there combing for stuff! You are the master...

    1. Well, heck...there's a LOT of Gingerologists out there just doing the work for me...I just need to compile it...it's a pretty cool 'network' or whatever...yourself included! ...er, BTW, weren't you the 'source' for the plane pic? Seems like I remember that...again, I need to document stuff a bit better... :-]

      Have a great weekend, Ron! - KIG!


    2. Yes, Huey, that one indeed is from Fluffy Stuffin!

    3. well, there ya go! Not sure how I remembered that... but hey, even a blind squirrel finds a nut every now and then...or something like that...


Awards...Thanks, Y'all!!!

...I TRULY appreciate these, and the kind words regarding this blog...thanks for all the inspiration I have drawn from each of your blog sites, which are all awesome in their unique ways!!!
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
