“April is a promise that May is bound to keep.”
Dear Friends and Schoolmates,
There's just something about April.....
BONUS - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EZHHHOoWSsI - Pat Boone - April Love, 1957
|"April Love" is a
popular song with
music by Sammy Fain
and lyrics by
Webster. It was written as the
theme song for a 1957
film of the same name starring
Pat Boone and
and directed by Henry
In the film, the Pat Boone character, Nick Conover, leaves Chicago after being put on probation for stealing a car. Living and working on the Kentucky farm of his uncle Jed Bruce and his aunt Henrietta, he falls in love with a neighbour's daughter, played by Shirley Jones. In the same way that Boone is often criticised for singing watered-down versions of rhythm and blues songs, the film April Love can be seen as a milder version of James Dean's Rebel Without a Cause (1955) or Marlon Brando's The Wild One (1955).
Helped by the release of the film, "April Love" became a number-one hit in the United States for Pat Boone in December 1957. In 1958, it was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Music, Original Song.

From Me ('65) of NC - 04/01/17 - "Temperature Gauge, Fayetteville, NC, 01/01/17 to 03/25/17:

ever changing weather.
91-100+ Cherry Red
Behold the first twelve
weeks of 2017 in Fayetteville!
The most interesting aspect to me of this period is the week of 03/19 to 03/18, which brought us not only another rare snow on 03/12/17 (as evidenced by the initial round of white within that day's motif), but the fact that the first six days of that eleventh week all had high temperatures falling in the honeydew and paddy green ranges - as though even the weather was celebrating St. Patrick's Day!
Isn't that simply fascinating? I know!
