...Gingerbilia Theft!

...most of the FaceBook folks have seen this, but, in case there's someone who hasn't, here's a story regarding the theft of a piece of jewelry which belonged to Ginger... first off, here's the item:
...interesting in that it is a horoscope symbol of Ginger's 'sign', Cancer (which Hu happens to be one of as well) - it's been documented on G-ology what I think about astrology - (i.e., a bunch of HOOIE), and most likely what Ginger thought as well.  I would think that this was given to her by someone - wish I had a nickel for every gift / present Ginger received! 
Anyway, here's the  article - guess it's OK to slap this on here from a site...I'll link to it at the bottom just in case:

from the New York Daily News - Deborah Hastings
A transient in southern Oregon is accused of stealing a ruby and gold necklace that once was owned by Hollywood legend Ginger Rogers, police said.
The chain and pendant are worth up to $1,500, according to Medford authorities. Paul Michael Pedder, 57, sold it to a pawn shop for $424.37, cops said Thursday.
Pedder, who is homeless, had been performing day labor for a man who had bought the jewelry at an estate sale for Rogers, who owned a home on the Rogue River and spent considerable time in the area before her death in 1995.
The man noticed that the necklace, which has a pendant depicting the Zodiac sign of Cancer with an embedded ruby, was missing after Pedder finished work Jan 16.
Jackson County Sheriff's deputies arrested Pedder earlier this week and he admitted stealing the piece of jewelry, according to authorities.
He was charged with theft and burglary. He is being held in lieu of $40,000 bail.

 ...I think whoever wrote this (i.e., Deborah Hastings), or edited it, was a pretty knowledgeable Ginger fan, as they posted this pic along with it:
...from Top Hat - where ol' Jerry reminds Dale about how she liked 'collecting trinkets' in Paris, or Bora-Bora, or wherever...Barbara would know the exact dialouge here... But DEFINITELY a tip-off as to someone with Ginger knowledge...

Well, in the end, it's nice to know that the owner got his cool piece of Gingerbilia back... the robber dude didn't know he was going against a Ginger fan... who would fight to the end to retrieve stolen Gingerbilia!

Hope everyone has a great big ol' GINGERY week!!!

KIG!
