...post-NOLA Gingery Musings...

...well, made it back from "The City that Care Forgot", a.k.a. New Orleans, and it was a good time for Hu and the Crew...or as they spell it in NOLA, Krewe...

Only one Gingery Moment, but it was pretty cool...we were in one of the umpteen t-shirt / souvenir stores throughout the French Quarter, when we found some neat tile drink coasters which had different 'iconic' images of the Cresent City... when THIS one popped up:
which, of course, I purchased... it was pretty neat that I snapped a pic of this sign on our last NOLA trip, and now it's considered an 'iconic' image of the quarter... the POWER of Gingerology, eh?


Well, back to the 'daily grind', as it were... but not until Monday... in the meantime, hope to have some more GingerPosts going... 'This Day in Gingerology' will hopefully be expanding soon...it's currently 'in process'... and of course, back to the GingerFilm reviews... GOTTA start those back up soon.

Hope all of y'all are doing well this summer... Keep it a GINGERY one, y'hear?
