...Happy "Gingertennial+1" Weekend, Y'all!!!
Of course, the 'news' here at the 'home office' is that we are a 'tenative' GO for a mondo road trip to ultimately see the GingerCentury exhibit in Boston...I know a few of y'all have been, and from what I've seen, I KNOW it's gonna take the better part of a day to immerse into it... I'm REALLY looking forward to it!
Well, Huey's birthday was a few weeks back, and one of our most dedicated G-ologists, Arianna (GF11 of Ginger's Corner) REALLY surprised me with THIS drawing...
HOW incredible is THIS??? Just perfect... I am framing this one for SURE! I love to draw, but...I'm just about positive I could NEVER draw Ginger well...and I'd definitely never get anywhere CLOSE to this!...I'm my own worst critic, I guess... but GF slam dunked this one!!!
Thanks SO much (again), Arianna!
...as for a 'FilmBlog' update, these are still 'under construction'...hopefully will make some MAJOR headway soon on these... I'll note when they have been 'set up'...in general, they are going to look like the 'Young Man of Manhattan' blog...and of course, if y'all have ANY suggestions, please feel free to throw them at me!!!
Well, y'all get hoppin' to this weekend's festivities, and as I always tell you good folks...
...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
