...Ginger on the TODAY Show...

...well, sorta... the story was about Michelle Obama's 50th Birthday, and for whatever reason, mentions folks who were in their 50's when she was born in 1964... and Ginger (who turned 53 in 1964) is included in this group, along with Lady Bird Johnson, Bette Davis, and Gene Kelly... Ginger shows up at the 50-second mark of this brief clip (linked - couldn't get the vid to load...blogger strikes again - it's the first video you scroll down to (50's in 1964)...):

Ginger on TODAY...January 2014

...ultimately, just cool to see our girl in the 'current media', in any capacity... and danged if I haven't seen this pic before! I wish I had a nickel for every GingerPic out there...

Hope y'all are all well out there, and DON'T forget the 'sync' viewing of Barkleys of Broadway over on FaceBook tonight - 9 P.M. Eastern...it's a 'running dialogue' of the film as all participants view it simultaneously... pretty fun stuff!

Until then, hope y'all...

KIG!!!
