...GingerBinge Summer...

...is CURRENTLY on vacation... Hu and the crew are heading out for a few days, and honestly, not much down time on vacation with two kids... so, instead of trying to tote the computer and sneaking in a film here or there, we'll just pick the GingerBinge back up upon my return... Saturday (7/2)...

In the interim...

Y'all Keep It Gingery!!!

...just touching base...

...just letting all y'all know that Hu and the crew are fine here in South Gingerville... just a few more things at work to round up, and should be ready to get back HERE, where...I would rather be, of course...  not that work is bad, it's actually pretty cool...
...just posting a 'random' pic (hey, ya GOTTA have a GingerPic in a post, right?) ...not sure if all of y'all have seen this one... it is from early in her career, but...it REALLY captures her so well... not sure if this is a 'publicity shot', or just a great photo shoot...wish more from this 'session' would show up!

...not all that much on the 'Ginger Front', as far as current events go... unLESS I've missed something...I try to Google every day to see if any GingerEvents are afoot... yif y'all hear of anything, let me know!

...hope to get back to it soon...this weekend, for sure...well, 'tenatively sure', anyway...

In the meantime - y'all...

Keep It Gingery!

  1. Ah I've seen that pic, it's so awesome! Of course Ginger is awesome in every pic.
    Ya I really need to get onto my Ginger collection post, I might just do it tomorrow. Lotta homework in school recently.

    I'm really pumped though cause this coming Sunday it's my birthday! :D Turning 17 this year. Although I've somewhat overheard my friends, and I think they're having a surprise party for me. Even though I know it's a party, it's still a surprise cause I have no idea where or what's the theme....pretty excited!

    Keep It Gingery
    BTW for my cake, I'm keeping the tradition of having a Ginger pic on it. ;)

      ...oh, BTW, you KNOW I have a special file in my 'GingerFiles' set aside SOLELY for 'GF's Birthday Cakes'... surprised? ...yeah, you knew that, didn't ya? :-)

    2. That's great! Hopefully you'll get the Roberta up this weekend.

      Actually I did not know that! I think that's really awesome you have a folder dedicated to my bday cakes lol.
      Picked five pics, and out of those five, my mom picked one. Don't know what though, so I'll have to wait!

      Have a GINGERY evening!

  2. I've never seen this photo, thanks for sharing!

    I've often wondered - and this photo is a perfect example I think - if she had any work done on her nose. In her younger pictures the bridge of her nose is quite thicker than in later ones, or is that just a result of losing any remaining baby/teenage 'fat' in her face?

    1. ...interesting point, Betsy! Sooner or later I may shoot a post or two out about this very 'issue'... My mom swears Ginger had her nose done, as well as teeth...most likely the case, although I didn't know 'nose jobs' were done back then... she is quite young in this pic, probably 19-20 at best... so there might be a bit more 'morphing' over the years to follow, but... hey, it's all good to me! ...and another 'wrinkle' (pardon the pun) to any cosmetic surgery for Ginger was that she was a pretty staunch Christian Scientist...which I know a bit about, enough that they are pretty much not into any medical procedures... so who knows...

      KIG, Betsy! TRY to stay warm up there in Huskerville...dang it looks to be cold up there right about now!

    2. the chances of her having a nose job are probably pretty slim - think she not only lost baby fat but got much trimmer - look at her nose in Gold Diggers and than in like top hat - she danced the nose fat off. LOL Also look at her late in life the nose looks broader again - she probably did have teeth work once she was doing well enough-

    3. ...I concur... the first few years of Ginger's film career, she was still 'transitioning' into adulthood...started at the ripe old age of 18, so... there's a lot of change between then and your early 20s... and she probably had a very low body fat percentage, due to mondo dancing...and tennis... and swimming... and, just being GINGER!

      BTW - thanks for the reply... hope ya join up, whomever you may be...sounds like you're a potential Gingerologist, tho!

  3. Awesome pic! I hadn't seen it before :) Work really needs to give you a break so you can focus on the more important things in life. Would it help if any Gingerologists sent a note to your boss excusing you for a few days? haha

    Glad you are all well in South Gingerville. KIG!

    1. hey, glad it's a new one for you...she's a youngster in this one, but dang she is fetching, no?

      ...as for work, it's looking a bit better...we just had a few BIG projects in a row... I check blueprints to make sure everything meets building codes, plumbing codes, energy codes, etc... and we had a NEW hospital, a Wal-Mart, and a MAJOR renovation of a large university dormitory, all within 3-4 weeks... pretty good job security, tho (and $$$), but it's clearing out, and by the weekend should be 'up to speed'... thus ready for some bodacious Gingery Goodness!!! :-)

      KIG, 'e'!

    2. Ouch, that sounds like a lot work. And nothing but details and code! I'm glad they have you on the job to do it right. All the hard work will make the Gingeryness all the more Gingery, right? :)

      I had to chime in on the plastic surgery notes. I'd agree with you that she didn't go under the knife for her nose. Ginger's face changed shape as she got older plus the make-up and lighting changed dramatically in the 30's and 40's. I think all that made her face look different. She did have her teeth worked on. You can see the difference in pics of her in the 1970's. In her autobiography, she mentioned going to the dentist when she was dating Howard Hughes. So she didn't have trouble with that kind of doctor.

    3. ...yeah, her teeth were 'fixed'...pretty evident for me from doing umpteen screen caps...Ginge didn't have 'bad' teeth at all to start with, but just a few spots that were pretty easy to 'fix', as it were...

      ...and not sure as to the extent of use of medical treatment... but I guess dentists might be 'exempt'? Not sure...

      KIG, 'e'!!!

    1. I REALLY need to organize my GingerFiles...not TOO far off, but still a lot of 'miscellaneous' folders...I have to get things in proper order... being a Gingerologist and all, you know...

      ...and we have something else in common, for I, too have JUST a few more pics of Ginger than Fred... :-)

      KIG, Kat!
