Happy Birthday Ginger!!!


Hard to believe it's been roughly a year since the GingerFest in Independence occurred! And while there will be no GingerFest this year, there will still be a celebration at her birth house, thanks to Missouri Marge!
And of course, we will all celebrate GingerTennial +8 in our own ways... actually, I'm on a road trip to Oxford, Mississippi tomorrow, where my daughter is checking out the place... she's a 'rising senior' in high school, and is thinking of going into law... I'm not sure how a Ginger celebration could be worked in, unless there is an ice cream joint there (I'm pretty sure there is)… but anyway, hope everyone has a good day, try to catch a GingerFilm or two - I've noticed TCM has a few to air on the 20th, so... that's something, I guess...

Keep It Gingery, y'all!!!
