Happy ThanksGinger!!!

...still my fave Ginger Thanksgiving pic, even if a bit...'staged'... but Pilgrim Ginger is pretty awesome!

Well, hope y'all all have a great Thanksgiving, and the food prep goes effortlessly for all you food preppers out there (I'm more of the 'end-user' on the food deal on Thanksgiving... I have been the designated 'turkey fryer' the last few years, but we are just going for the traditional 'oven bird' this year...)
Ginger chickens....well, yeah... but those dudes over Ginger's left shoulder aren't safe this week... I swear that tall one looks kinda like the Loch Ness Monster...

And of course, keep in mind what this is all about... giving THANKS... so let me take this opportunity to thank all of Y'ALL out there who have followed this blog over the years... hard to believe it's been 7-1/2 years... but it's SO great to know there are other Gingerologists out there who share the same level of interest for all things GR.
...ah, Ginger on a float... Macy's is still rolling with the parade, although quite frankly I don't know any of the 'stars' which are current... perhaps they can just show re-runs of parades past... I know most of the cartoon balloons...

Hope to be posting more stuff soon...

Until then...

KIG, y'all!!!!

ELECTION TIME...VOTE GINGER!!!

...well, not really... although if I ever wanted to 'write-in' someone given the 'true' choices this go-round, THIS would definitely be the year... hmmmm....

...OK, y'all know I NEVER talk about politics here at Gingerology, or over on FB, as I am generally not immersed in the political system - I just know the basic facts and try to avoid too much of the 'analysis'... but... as this is truly one of the most important elections EVER (they are all important, tho, right?) I HAVE been watching and listening a good bit more - and here's my thoughts about it.

We truly do not have a great option.

BUT... ya GOTTA vote... it's your civic duty...no scratch that - it's your PRIVILEGE as an American citizen, which was secured by generations of fighting men and women in war, as well as on the home-front, who have kept this country free, and who fought for equal voting rights for ALL.

Case in point: The U.S. had just passed the 19th Amendment allowing women to vote about 10-12 years before Ginger's point in time was captured above, when she became old enough to register.

We all know Ginger's leanings politically, and hey, generally, I'm with her (pardon the current candidate slogan pun...). But it would have been interesting to know what Ginger would have thought about a female candidate, political leanings notwithstanding... it is a great thing to see 'diversity' in the political system, to the level of president... and a female president would be GREAT, in my opinion... just... ANOTHER one... without the issues... and issues.... and... issues.

As to the other candidate... he is touted as a 'change agent', which sounds pretty great on the surface, but... who knows how all of that will play out? I'm for some of his ideas, not as big on others (I'll let y'all guess those)... but... it is pretty hard to overlook his faults... needs to think before speaking, although his supporters like his 'straightforward' attitude... but...dudes who marginalize / trivialize women are not too high on my list, y'all... 

So... quite the conundrum, eh?

The answer?

...it's a real Jenny type of decision, with the potential for horrific consequences if indecisive...

...Actually, the answer is THIS... the only wrong decision you can make is... NOT VOTING...

Remember, it's a BIG part of what it means to be an American.

SO, hold your nose,  flip a coin if you have to, and VOTE... heck, there's a couple of local amendments here which are big to me (Local folks vote YES on Amendment 14 in Alabama!) so that is enough reason to stand in line... again... exercise your right and privilege which others fought for you to have!!!

OK, my once every four years political rant is over...

If all else fails, just...

Keep It Gingery,Y'all!
