Doggie!!!

...at the request of that all-knowing, all-seeing, infinitely wise lady known as Mrs. Huey, who informed me of this whilst perusing FaceBook, I give to you...

...The Dancing Doggie known as Ginger Rogers!!!

...here's the scoop... or link...

Dancing 'Ginger Rogers' Doggie

In general, this pup is quite fond of the 'waltz', as best as I can tell... and her video placed on FaceBook has gone 'viral'! Hopefully the new home will be great for her, and the owners can play her lots of 'swing time' stuff!!! I am pretty sure Ginger would get a kick out of this, and knowing her fondness for animals, would be happy to know this one has found a new home...

Well, other than this - which may well have made the rounds on FaceBook's Gingery area, but I'll post it here for posterity as well - not too much happening in Hu-ville... ...well, except that I have cataract surgery next Tuesday... hopefully a pretty 'routine' deal... but messing with one's eyes is always a touch and go type of thing, even though I'm in REAL good hands at the UAB Callahan Eye Foundation clinic... one of the best out there!

I'll probably check in sometime 'post-op'...

And I plan on 'advancing' the 'GingerLIFE' project this weekend as well... still 'patching up' the covers, but should be ready to print soon... stay tuned...

Until then,

KIG, Y'ALL!!!
