...Ginger didn't limit herself to percussion instruments...
...well, I'm sure there are others where she tickles the ivories, but... these are all that come to mind... awesomeness, ALL of them!
...what about other instruments? Well, there's a few more Ginger tinkered with...
...well, let's get back to the original theme here... DRUMS...
TWELVE Days of GINGER are complete.
We here at Gingerology hope you have enjoyed the posts... they were a lot of fun to compile, and got me back in the GingerGroove, no doubt...
AND, we also wish all of you and yours out there a MOST prosperous, joyful, merry, reflective, momentous, safe, and, of course, GINGERY... Christmas as well as any other seasonal holiday/observance you partake in...

well... of course this implies a musical theme, but... we have one more day left, so... let's go THIS route here instead... what is 'piping'? Well, you channel water through a pipe, but we've had the swimming deal as well (see Day SEVEN)...
...here's a thought... bakers perform a procedure whilst administering frosting upon a cake which they refer to as...piping...
...cake... ...food... ...I think we have our 'theme' here...
...well, let's see... we are ALMOST home, Ladies and Laddies!!! The TWELFTH and final Day of GINGER will be posted tomorrow, on Christmas Eve... I planned to finish on the 24th, 'cause I know most folks will be doing the Christmas thang on the 25th, right? SO, until tomorrow...

...well, 'leaping' is more or less dancing, right? And there's truly only ONE 'Lord of the Dance', and he just HAPPENED to appear in TEN motion pictures with Ginger! (see what I did there?)...so here ya go... in no particular order...
well, onward to ELEVEN...dang, we're almost there, y'all!

...well, heck... THIS one's pretty easy...
...now, for another angle to this day, check THIS out:
Well, not much verbiage for this one (probably a GOOD thing...) ...so with that, hope y'all are having a great time, and as we start this 'final week' before Christmas, hope all the "hay is in the barn" regarding your preparations... and no stress! This is to be a time of joy, peace, thanks, and reflection...NOT stress and worry.
Until day TEN...

...these are getting harder the higher up we go...
Ok - Howzabout... just Ginger with a bunch of other folks or... stuff surrounding her?
...like for instance...
...Here's our girl with some other stars (see if you can pick them out on the front row), along with a college football team... can't place WHICH college, but I'm thinking it's a Ivy League school... I know some of y'all out there have all the info for this one...
Well, this post was a bit of a mish-mosh, I guess, but... hopefully still a fun exercise...
Getting even CLOSER... Old No.9 rolls around tomorrow...
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
