...'tenative' becomes 'set'...
Will be the second week in August...well, heck, two weeks from TODAY, as a matter of fact... here's hoping for a VERY Gingery trip... will also 'set up camp' in Maryland, not far from D.C., and will head to the Smithsonian...where we MAY find one of Ginger's gowns/dresses she donated...but the way they rotate items in and out, not sure if there will be one currently on display...will have to contact Ben Stiller to get into the Smithsonian 'storage caverns'...
But overall, should be a fun trip...lots of other things going on in Beantown...will tour Fenway Park...check out all the 'Revolutionary' sites there... maybe stroll thru Harvard... Boston Harbor... and so on and so forth... if any of y'all have any suggestions for Boston sightseeing, restaurants, etc... throw 'em out here! :-)
...as for 'near-term', yeah, I need to get cranking on 'Romance in Manhattan'...have just about finished my 'transferal' of Gingerflms to my new computer, so... should be ready to roll in a day or two with the review....AND to continue the 'setup' of the FilmBlogs...it's ongoing, y'all... I would like to get those set up for 'general databases', or whatever, for the masses out there to utilize...
Well, hope everyone is doing well, and ready for August...dang, July is a long, HOT month!...not that August will be any LESS hot or LESS long... just hang in there... and...
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
