FXM Declares June 2 Gingery!!!
I've been on a bit of 'sabbatical', I guess, regarding Gingerology... Kids finishing up school, business trip, visits by out-of-town company, etc. have all conspired to quell the GingerPosts...
But hopefully I will be getting things into full gear now...
...and, starting with this reminder - TOMORROW, June 2, FXM has gone nearly 'all Ginger'... they will air Dreamboat TWICE, Teenage Rebel TWICE, and Tales of Manhattan (just once)... if they had Roxie in there somewhere, it would be a perfect GingerFox day!!! ('GingerFox' is obviously redundant, however... :-p )
...well, second, I am going to get back into the Gingerfilm reviews... no, REALLY...this time I MEAN it... Starting from the last GingerFilm (Harlow) and working backwards... this will ultimately allow the final reviews to be in the 'meat' of Ginger's career... So, stay tuned!!!
Hope everyone is doing well out there... I am sad to report that one of our Gingerologists on FaceBook, Carol Greenspan, lost her husband very recently - our condolences and prayers go out to Carol and her family in this difficult time.
Until next time, y'all -
KIG - Hu
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
