Here's Looking at You, Kid

Another amazing part of God's creation - a closeup of the compound eyes of a long-legged fly. Next time you'll have a greater appreciation for this little guy as you splatter his innards across your kitchen cabinet door. For those of you that are of a slightly younger generation, the famous line "Here's looking at you, kid," was spoken by Humphrey Bogart to Ingrid Bergman at the end of the 1942 silver screen classic "Casablanca."

Actually, "Here's looking at you," was spoken by Rick (Bogart) to Ingrid (Elsa?) while they were living in Paris before the Nazis invaded France. Of course, he repeated it at the end--one of the great scenes in filmdom in one of the great movies.

And if you want to watch a really fine old movie with great dialogue and acting, try "Force of Evil" with John Garfield. The music is super, also.

I of course had to look it up. The characters were Rick Blaine and Ilsa Lund. "I came to Casablanca for the waters." Thanks Joe.
