...just touching base...

I've got a pretty big weekend, nothing 'big', really, just...full of rather smallish events... so post time will be pretty limited the next few days... mainly, I have some work from...work to get caught up on this weekend... AAANDDD, It IS football season, so, I have to trudge out to see my UAB Blazers play the East Carolina Pirates tonight... hope for the best, expect the worst... but it's fun, either way.

I have yet to start on Roberta...
 
...but looking forward to it! ...ya know, I'm not sure if this dress above is actually THE Roberta dress, since it doesn't have that metal brooch thingie on it... like the one below... 
 
 
...I think we've had a few conversations on that before... probably just added the bling for the dance... 
...I also know that the dress she wears in the 'I'll Be Hard To Handle' scene is the one she has on in our beloved Gingerology header pic...so, yeah, I guess this film is a pretty dang Gingery one, in the 'pre-analysis' of it...stay tuned...
 
Hope all of Y'ALL are having a great weekend thus far...it's PERFECT weather here in South Gingerville...hope it's the same for you, wherever your Gingery self may be...
 
Until then, as they say down on the Rogue River Ranch...
 
...Keep It Gingery!!!

  1. Actually I'm pretty sure the diamond brooch is on the dress, it's just hard to see it at first. It looks like it to me in the pic.
    Although I've always have thought of the dress SUPER pretty. I've always wanted a copy of it made, same thing goes with the dress she wears in the Never Going To Dance routine in Swing Time....they both are pretty!!!
    It's not perfect weather here yet sadly. Still in the 80s and 90s. Hopefully soon it cools down!
    Have a great "gingery" weekend :)

    1. ...well, now that you mention it...heck, I thought that was just a 'shadow'...or...well, a 'reverse image shadow'... OK - well, good to know.

      I may do a poll here in a few...days, weeks, who knows...oof... regarding Ginger Dresses... I think I've done at least one before, but... lots of new folks since then, I think...

      Stay cool! Milder weather will get there soon - hopefully...

    1. ...well, I gave it away to a kid down the street in, oh, about 1980 or so... yup... that would have been nice to have about now... I DO have a 'Merlin', and a few of the Mattel 'hand-held' sports games... football and basketball... they make 'repros' of all of those today, so not sure if an 'original' would be worth much...well, in MY lifetime, anyway...

      pong was cool, if not a bit boring after awhile... but still pretty 'cutting edge' for its day.

    2. Haha I bet you regret giving it away. I think nowadays those would be valuable. I collect the systems, so I have all of the nintendo systems from the first one in 1985 all the way up to the wii. Although I prefer to play the older games. I don't know maybe it's for nostalgia reasons since I played the old ones when I was a kid.
      I also would want to get my hands on the Atari 2600 and of course Pong.....

  3. ...I had a 2600 system SOMEWHERE here on the premises, with a heap of the games... not sure where it ended up... heck, someone may have 'walked off' with it... we also have a Nintendo - 'first generation'...and a 'first run' PlayStation...

    Maybe one day I'll sit down and sort it all out...
