May 2017 is nearly here. Pools are opening, seniors are preparing to graduate on to bigger and better things, and we are all investing in sunscreen. Through the hustle and bustle of the spring, we are looking forward to some events of the local variety. These are the events on my calendar this May!

Now this just sounds cool. If I didn’t get motion sickness I’d be all over it! As it is, I recommend it for those that can handle these kinds of things. Tell me how it goes.

Paramount Film Series: Pillow Talk
A womanizing songwriter spends hours on the phone wooing his many women. Problem is, he shares a party line with a prim interior decorator who’s miffed because she can’t get any calls. Starring: Doris Day, Rock Hudson, Tony Randall; color, 103 minutes, not rated, 1958.
Again, this movie was one of my favorites growing up. The Paramount can really do no wrong.
