Many of the city streets are named after different people — some celebrities and others non celebrities. I was surprised to come across this street named after legendary actor Humphrey Bogart. Are there any fans of Bogart and his movies like Casablanca, Sabrina, The Maltese Falcon, The African Queen, The Caine Mutiny, The Treasure of the Sierra Madre (and more) in the house?
There are many famous lines from the movie Casablanca, including the line spoken by Rick (Bogart), "Here’s looking at you, kid," to Ilsa (Ingrid Bergman). It’s one of my favorite lines, as well as "Play it again, Sam."
In the U.S.A., this Monday is Memorial Day. This observance, which dates back to the American Civil War, commemorates the memory of military men and women who died in service for their country. It also commemorates the current men and women in uniform. My thoughts and prayers continue to be with everyone.
Have a great week, folks, wherever you are!
