Eighty Years to the Day...
I would be remiss (...and remember, kiddos, it's better to miss than to remiss) if I didn't mention the ONLY film Ginger appeared in which no Gingerologist has seen...that I am aware of... it's the Quest for the Girl...Hat Check, that is...
I've heard there are copies out there, but... where? and HOW do we get a hold of them? AND, has it been transferred to electronic file, or is the decades-old cellulose nitrate film being allowed to slowly disintegrate in its tin canister crypt? ARRRRGH!!!
Well, I still have a feeling this lost GingerFilm will surface SOMEWHERE, and hopefully we can all check it out at roughly the same time, and compare notes... Don't Stop...Believin'...
As for other Gingery items, well, not a heap going on currently...I had a few issues with the internet last weekend, so it put me a few days back...however, the 'fix' ended up reviving my old computer, so I'm back on-line with it, in addition to my new laptop...so all's well, y'all... double 'll's abound here...:-)
So, hope to catch up on the weekend...in the meantime, hope all is well with everyone, have a Gingery remainder of the week, most easily accomplished, by...
Keepin' It Gingery, of course!
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
