Have a GINGERY 2013, y'all!!!
...I just ran across it on YouTube, which, honestly I don't 'search' as much as I should...it's amazing there's stuff like this out there, considering there wasn't any VCR action going on in the early 60s... this must be from a 'master tape' somebody had somewhere... a sincere G-ology 'thanks' to whoever set this up!
...thanks to all of y'all who have supported G-ology this year... there's been some very Gingery stuff afoot this past year, with of course the big Boston trip at the top of the Hu list... here's hoping that 2013 is even more Gingery!!!
Stay tuned for some 'new' features for the site soon...well, I'm contemplating some things, anyway... along with 'development' of the 'GingerFilm' blogs, Hu should have a lot of stuff to do...
...and yes, "Roberta" is still on deck... well, the film review, that is...although... would love to 'contact' Ms. Olden if possible... stay tuned...
And remember...it's YOU that makes G-ology tick!!! so, thanks again! ...and, of course....
Keep It Gingery in 2013!!!
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
