Keep Calm, Y'all...

...well, hopefully this isn't beating the proverbial 'dead horse', but... I went and did it...  WHAT, you may say? welp, lemme tell ya... right after an awesome GingerPic, to get things started...
OK... The 'Keep Calm and...' signs we have figured out how to make (once again, it's HERE ) 'inspired' me to create one of these for....EACH of Ginger's 70+ films... yup.

SO, of course I have 'installed' each sign on the appropriate GingerFilm blog, which you can check out from the 'link list' on the right-hand side of this blog (Gingerology)... the signs are at the bottom right corner of the 'home page' of the Gingerfilm blog you happen to be checking out.

Now, if that isn't confusing enough, here's an impromptu 'quiz' for y'all... I'm posting some of my fave signs below, and YOU figure out which film they are from... I'll place the answers in the comments to this post, so...figure them out BEFORE checking the comments!!!







...these will probably be pretty easy for most of y'all, but ya never know... AND, if y'all can come up with any, PLEASE submit, and I will gladly tack onto the correlating blogsite... ...actually, the one for Young Man Of Manhattan was created by our own Ginger Peachy... "Cigarette Me, Big Boy!"  ...Ginger Rogers said that, not Ginger Peachy...well, GP MAY have uttered that sometime in the past, although I honestly am not aware of her being a smoker... :-)

ANYWAY, I am now heading over to the Star Of Midnight 'Huey Treatment (remember that?) ... to work on it...stay tuned... until then, of course...

KIG!!!

  7. Well you tried to hide the answers! :) You did good, with the signs Hu! It was quite an idea to introduce Ginger to the "Keep Calm" community! I especially like the ones for Roberta, It Had To Be You and Upperworld! Thank you for giving me credit for YMOM! :) I have a feeling this "Keep Calm" thing will develop into a art form in the Ginger Community!! And no I don't smoke. I quit when I started drinking! ;) But I do use the "Cigarette Me Big Boy" phrase, usually when I'm being out smart by a male wisecracker! :)

    KiG, Marshall - Peachy!!

    1. ...thanks for the kind words, GP!!! And it is good to know you don't smoke... it's just not good for ya... my dad passed away a few years back with lung cancer, and he quit, heck, back in the late 1970s...
      ...maybe this will kind of 'latch on' as a phrase for Ginger folks... neat to have a 'style' for Gingerology...

      KIG, Peachy!!!
