HOOIE), and most likely what Ginger thought as well. I would think that this was given to her by someone - wish I had a nickel for every gift / present Ginger received!
Anyway, here's the article - guess it's OK to slap this on here from a site...I'll link to it at the bottom just in case:
from the New York Daily News - Deborah Hastings
A transient in southern Oregon is accused of stealing a ruby and gold necklace that once was owned by Hollywood legend Ginger Rogers, police said.
The chain and pendant are worth up to $1,500, according to Medford authorities. Paul Michael Pedder, 57, sold it to a pawn shop for $424.37, cops said Thursday.
Pedder, who is homeless, had been performing day labor for a man who had bought the jewelry at an estate sale for Rogers, who owned a home on the Rogue River and spent considerable time in the area before her death in 1995.
The man noticed that the necklace, which has a pendant depicting the Zodiac sign of Cancer with an embedded ruby, was missing after Pedder finished work Jan 16.
Jackson County Sheriff's deputies arrested Pedder earlier this week and he admitted stealing the piece of jewelry, according to authorities.
He was charged with theft and burglary. He is being held in lieu of $40,000 bail.
...I think whoever wrote this (i.e., Deborah Hastings), or edited it, was a pretty knowledgeable Ginger fan, as they posted this pic along with it:
Well, in the end, it's nice to know that the owner got his cool piece of Gingerbilia back... the robber dude didn't know he was going against a Ginger fan... who would fight to the end to retrieve stolen Gingerbilia!
Hope everyone has a great big ol' GINGERY week!!!

...First off, hope everyone had a great holiday season! We did quite well, but had some sickness bounce back and forth over the last weeks... currently Bam-Bam is a bit froggy... but on the mend.
As to what 2015 holds for Gingerology, well, the sky's the limit, right?
It generally comes down to TIME, and hopefully that will be a bit better managed by your humble author... the goal here is to get the GingerFilm reviews cranked back up (we left off with Lady Dale, but didn't get to 'the Huey Treatment' for Top Hat... I'll get right on it... no, REALLY...) - it's a bit strange that I got to GingerFilm #35 before the 'hiatus'... wonder if I should pick up at 'Harlow' and work backwards, to have a 'Grand Finale' at roughly 'Swing Time'...
Other stuff should get cranking here soon as well... with the gobs of pics and info on FaceBook, the focus here at G-ology will most likely shift a bit... oh, don't worry, GingerPics will grace this blog QUITE prominently... but along with the resumption of GingerFilm Reviews, more 'HueyView' stuff will be going on... please throw out any topic to discuss, and...well, most likely we will discuss!
I would also love to add some GingerTunes on here... I'll have to figure it out... still not sure why music is so tough to place here, but not videos...
With that, THANKS for your continued support of this blog... starting the second half-decade of this puppy, and hope to keep it interesting, informative, and most of all...
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
