This month has flown by... and a late Thanksgiving means an early Christmas... so lotsa stuff going on for all of us. Still hoping to get back into a 'regular deal' regarding posting... a few things are 'pending', so we'll see...
BUT, there's at least time for a few GingerNotes, right?
Well, with Turkey Day fast approaching (as noted perfectly by Ginger at the '58 Macy's Parade...), guess the big question is, "what am I THANKFUL for?" Well, there's been quite a few good things this year for Hu, with the biggest being a successful eye surgery for a detached retina... left untreated would have resulted in losing sight... but it's great now! Still a bit of 'distortion', but will have to get new glasses soon... I have one more 'check' by the surgeon in January to make sure all is well, then get fitted for new 'cheaters'... I will probably forgo contact lenses at this station in life...have been hearing some bad stuff about them lately, anyway. and of course, family and friends are VERY much on Hu's 'thanks' list...which of course includes Gingerologists... y'all are the GREATEST!!!
...HEY! Hu FINALLY ordered all the GingerFilms which have been released on DVD this year... 'You Said a Mouthful', 'Magnificent Doll', 'Forever Female', and 'Cinderella'... so HoHoHoToHu! :-)
...well, hope all is well with everyone out there - of course I will yak with most of y'all on FB... if not, you REALLY need to get hooked up over there, as there is pretty much an unlimited supply of Gingery Goodness happening perpetually... which is AWESOME!
Oh yeah, just a few days left on the 'hair color' poll...looks like 'non-blonde' has gotten quite a bit more love this go-round, but blonde is tough to beat... if you haven't yet...go VOTE!!!
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
