...Happy 106th!!!

Well, it's hard to believe it's been six years since GingerTennial! But yet here we are... still hanging in for the most part, and still celebrating Our Girl's date of birth!  Wish the GingerFest would have happened this year... hopefully Miss Missouri Marge will get things ready for a 2018 rollout!

For now, tho, celebrate by doing Gingery stuff... of course, ice cream... and if so inclined, playing tennis (you may want to reverse the order of those two, tho ;-) ) ...and try to work in a GingerFilm or two... honestly, y'all, it's been a few since I've watched one... I need to make up for lost time!

Thanks to all of y'all out there who follow Gingerology... I know it hasn't been too active lately, but hopefully that will change... but life is quite 'loaded' at times... STILL not an excuse for being tardy in all things Ginger...

KIG, y'all!

...Fifty Years of Huey...

...just saying thanks to all who have posted greetings on this, my fiftieth birthday! The Lord has blessed me immeasurably with an incredible wife and kids, My ma (Ms. Tremont to y'all), great job, and health... Life is indeed GOOD!

With this, Hu and the Crew are heading out on vacation next week, as a lot of y'all are... wherever you end up, please have a safe and VERY happy Independence Day Weekend!!! And I should be getting some posts going here... it's been quite awhile...

Until then,
KIG, y'all!!!

...still here...

...but been busy... and a lot of heavy things happening...

Most sadly is the passing of my mother-in-law just a little over a month after my Father-in-law passed away in early April. The only real way to describe it was 'broken heart syndrome'... they have been married over 53 years (and still counting in Heaven), and she just simply could not function without him... my wife Greta, who is a nurse, says this happens quite often when one of a married couple dies, the other one soon follows them. Bottom line, they are together again, which is the only way one can look at it.Thanks for all of y'all's prayers and thoughts during this time - obviously tough on Greta and my brother-in-law at this time, as well as for me and our kids...

Hopefully some Gingery programming will commence soon... I am pretty swamped with 'work-work', but gradually clearing out of it... I had a definite 'GingerMoment' today while talking to a random member (I field questions regarding building code compliance) - they noted they had an existing, historic building, built in 1911... which obviously caught my attention... but when told it was located in... Virginia, that was just a bit too coincidental... a gentle 'prod' by our girl to get me back on the GingerTrail, perhaps? eh, I like to think so... so with that, I'll try to get things cranking here again soon...

Until then...

...it's always a sad day, but it's a time to reflect on Ginger's awesome talents (such as the self-portrait above, which is dang near perfect...) and what she gave to the world for all time... never to be forgotten and tremendously missed... 

Forever KIG...
