...On the Second Day of GINGER... on GINGEROLOGY...
Ginger of course had gobs of friends and/or folks she liked to work with, many of which were not in the spotlight... but for those who were/are in the spotlight, here's a few of my fave 'GingerBuds' to continue the theme for the day...
THIS video, which was so bizarre that I just had to link it... not sure why... ANYWAY, seems like Ginger was on Dinah's Place quite a bit, so... I think the conspiracy theorists are all wet...if not in some cases just...strange...
...well, that's a few of Ginger's gal pals over the years - there are plenty more, of course... ...and in case you're asking about DUDES that Ginger were involved with...well, you KNOW there's quite a few more days left in this exercise... ;-)
Until the THIRD Day...
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
