I've been unfortunately neglecting G-ology the past few weeks, as there have been quite a few events which have popped up in September... the kids are in full swing at school, football season (BIG deal in South Gingerville), and my daughter is playing volleyball - doing pretty well for the first go-around with it! And of course homework is something we all collaborate on... so just hectic times, early bedtimes, etc... but hopefully things will 'settle in' in a few more weeks...just in time for the holidays! oof.
The big news, tho, is that Hu has to have 'outpatient' eye surgery tomorrow (September 19) - as a detached retina has reared its ugly head... left untreated it WILL result in losing eyesight, so... no alternative... SO... as a result, I'll be out of commission for a week or so... but, going to one of the best places in the world, literally, to do this - UAB - so no worries about the results. I told them to just knock me OUT and wake me when its OVAH!!!
So, with that, I'm planning to get back into the Gingery groove by the end of the month! In the meantime, y'all...
Keep It Gingery!

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
