...T-minus one month and counting...

...before the FIRST annual Ginger Rogers Day Festival gets underway in Independence, Missouri!!!
...Ginger visited this house several times over the years, and it obviously meant quite a bit to her, as it was obviously her 'point of entry' into this life, but it also was a reminder of her humble beginnings, and how Lela worked tirelessly to provide for her... so cool that it is still here for us to tour... Of course, the BIG shout-out goes out to Marge and Gene Padgitt, who purchased, restored, and organized this event... they are obvious Gingerologists!!! Here's the link to the site...

Ginger Rogers Festival 2018 

...should be a total BLAST for all Gingerologists who can make it... ...of course, I think we would all LOVE to be able to make this an annual occurrence, so support is a BIG deal... If you can't make it, please think of donating to the house / museum HERE
...a 'post-Ginger, Pre-Missouri Marge' pic of the house, actually taken on Ginger's 100th Birthday (a.k.a. GingerTennial)...

Hope to see y'all there... of course! I'll be the big Huey-looking guy... đŸ˜‰

Until then... Keep It Gingery, Y'all!!!
