May 2023 Calendars

On time, for a change.

Note: you should see Thirteen calendars in this post (I think) . . . if you don’t, just reload the page as sometimes they’re slow to load.

Since I have mucho many AI offerings, I will be using them for the calendars. . . or I will until I get tired of AI-created stuff. Here is the first of the May offerings:

The printable files for the monthly calendars will all be uploaded HERE. Previous calendars are also there, and I’ll add each month’s calendar as I create them. You should then have the option to download any or all the files.

If you have a color printer — and you so desire — you should be able to print them on 8.5×11 letter-size paper. As mentioned, if you don’t have a color printer, you can print the color versions in grayscale or just print the monochrome versions. I could have made an A4 version, but unless requested, these will all be Letter-sized.

I’ve also turned on the download option for the SmugMug Gallery (HERE), so you could also download them from there . . . and let me know if it does — or does not — work. One thing, if you right-click and choose “save-as”, it will download whatever size you’re looking at. There’s an actual download icon to get the original size file. View full-size to download the full-size version if you plan to use “save-as” and want the full-size version. (The Google option is probably easier.)

No, I won’t be offended if no one downloads them. Part of doing this is to keep in practice with some Photoshop features, so, again, it’s for my benefit.

As before, I don’t expect anyone — in this digital assistant age — to actually use a paper calendar, but a few readers said they’ve used them, so I’ll continue to offer them.

So, May . . . As can be seen above, the countryside is awakening to Spring Growth and making preparations for Summer. Most flowers — at least here — are blooming (as are weeds). Of course, there are still lingering showers, but I don’t think the flowers mind.

Of course, the first bugs are already out there, doing their thing.

The end of the month brings us Memorial Day sales . . . I believe there’s another reason for the holiday, but most seem to just look forward to the day off and the sales.

I mean, gotta keep buying stuff, or the whole thing collapses, right? Still, we should at least make an effort to remember the reason for the holiday (hint: it’s not the sales).

Anyway, those are the calendars for May, and here are a few monochrome versions of the above . . .

That’s it. This post has ended . . . except for the stuff below.
