...The Top Hat - Huey Treatment is nearing!!!
...well, let's just say there's 'progress' of sorts, anyway... I think Miss Tremont is rapidly running out of patience, so, in Hu's best interests to complete the treatment in short order...
...and thanks to all who voted in the 'Fave Ginger suspense Film' poll... Shriek In the Night won by a pretty fair margin... it is a bit better 'watch', so no big surprise overall...
...looks like GandF is a slam dunk over at the 'couples tourney' at Monty's... if you haven't yet, scoot over there and VOTE, not only for GandF, of course, but also for all your other fave classic film pairings...
...as for other things afoot in South Gingerville...well, not much, really... just waiting for the preparations for Thanksgiving festivities to ramp up, as we have a good bit of kin folk popping in that weekend... and with that, hope all of y'all have a great week... and stay tuned for more Ginger... soon... hopefully... KIG!!!!
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
