GingeRemembrance 2017

...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...

...letting y'all know...

...that my father-in-law passed away last Saturday at the age of 74... from congestive heart failure.

Joe Reed was a very great man, who never met a stranger and would literally give you the shirt off of his back.

He was a 'handyman' who could plow through a total house painting / wallpapering project in the time it would take me to paint a closet... and pretty much do anything from unclogging a drain to cutting down a tree...to...well, you name it, if he couldn't fix it (which was a rare occurrence) he knew 2 or 3 other folks who could...  

He took care and helped many older folks, primarily widow ladies... that's in the Bible, y'all... from mundane daily tasks to major issues, he was caretaker to many who had nobody else...

LOVED his grandkids... they called him 'Daddy-Daddy'... Rebekah came up with that one...

I am blessed and bettered by knowing him, as MANY are...

He will be greatly missed by ALL.

...BLAH...

...well, here's that month again... yeeg...
...phone-a-friend, y'all... while you still can...

Of course, it has been well documented that April is my LEAST favorite month... apologies to those who are fans of this month... I'm sure that PLENTY of good things have happened in Aprils past... but... lotsa BAD, too... of course, Ginger left this orb in  April of 1995... which obviously makes it a somber month in the world of Gingerology... but... here's a few other things you may or may not know about April calamities:
...yeah, buddy... again, you could probably find lots of bad, lots of good at ANY point within the calendar... but doubt if there's a month WORSE than this one...

Here's hoping that this April will SOMEhow be...well, not so APRIL-like... I'm not too optimistic...
...neither is Ms. Fortune... ...just pray for May, y'all...

KIG - especially in this decidedly NON-Gingery month...
