Of course, fellow Gingerologists have well documented the specifics of the incredible items on display at the Boston University Gottlieb Center, but there were a few specific requests out there from y'all...
Well, I have quite a few more pics, and some pretty neat tales from Beantown... overall it's a very neat town, and I highly suggest it for your traveling itinerary.
I am compiling this on my daughter's laptop, which is OK, but a bit hard (for me), w/o a mouse...and, we really are quite busy! We are actually back near Baltimore now, and tomorrow we are heading over to Annapolis, and tomorrow evening heading out to the Orioles-Red Sox game at Camden Yards (if it isn't rained out...) - so, I probably won't be able to do a great deal of posting until we arrive back in the Ham by the weekend...I will be able to 'have my thoughts gathered' a bit more then...
But, yes, indeed... there IS a Virginia, y'all...and the documentation of her incredible life and career is on display in Boston...hope y'all can get there - it's worth it!
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
