...various Gingery stuff...
First off, an article about the passing of federal judge Robert J. Kelleher, who was also an avid tennis player, died Wednesday in Los Angeles, aged 99... check the link below... the Ginger angle? Well, jump to the last sentence of the article for that...
Robert Kellher obit
This next article addresses an event probably wrapping up as I type...sorry I didn't find it a bit earlier, but...it's concerning Ginger's Duesenberg, which is appearing at a car show in Kansas City AS I TYPE (Sunday, 6/24)...well, hope someone out there got to see it, but to me, it's pretty cool the owner is 'taking it around' to different shows...good sign... and I think that it may be Ginger's way of dropping a hint to ME to get cracking on that REVIEW! :-]
Ginger's Duesenberg at Kansas City Car Show
Well, wrapping up with a pretty thorough review of the new book, The Astaires, by Kathleen Riley. I haven't read it yet, but will try to one of these years (oof) ...my Ma HAS read it (she's an avid reader), says it's pretty interesting, but not much Ginger mentioned...well, after all, it IS about Fred and Adele... but this review has its first few paragraphs discussing Fred and Ginger's routine in 'Night and Day' from The Gay Divorcee (yeah, yeah, Ginger, I'll get right on that review...) ...and how it circumvented the Hays Office... as it was QUITE the 'interpretive dance', shall we say... :-]
NYT review of 'The Astaires'
Well, that's all I got...for now... oh, did I mention I'm working on the review for The Gay Divorcee? ...hope y'all are having a great weekend, and until that review is reality,
...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
