That’s Entertainment!

Staying home means finding things for Handsome and me to do. We love movies and thank goodness for TCM. Old movies rock. And no matter how many times I watch an oldie but goodie, I’ll watch it again. Here’s some I love:   Bridget Jones’ Diary-romantic comedy: a reinterpretation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice….
