MEMORIAL DAY WEEKEND 2017 WITH ROB AND MONICA

AND NOW A WORD FROM ROB & MONICA...click on the photo to see one of their latest finds--the 1965 Tony Bennett album, If I ruled the world, songs for the jet set...

Memorial Day weekend is the unofficial start of summer and we always look forward to its arrival. It is never a great saling weekend simply because there are never a lot of sales. Many of the tag sale companies take the weekend off knowing many people will have other commitments this weekend. Garage sales are also few and far between. They will start heating up next weekend. We hope the weather will, too. We had a few record-setting temperatures earlier in the month but, for the most part, this May hasn't reminded us that much of summer.

REMEMBERING CLAUDE RAINS

Who died this date in 1967...Courtesy of our friends at European Film Star Postcards...(click on the photo).

The career of English stage and film actor Claude Rains (1889 - 1967) spanned 47 years.  In Hollywood he was a supporting actor who achieved A-list stardom. With his smooth distinguished voice he could portray a wide variety of roles, ranging from villains to sympathetic gentlemen. He is best known as the title figure in The Invisible Man (1933), as wicked Prince John in The Adventures of Robin Hood (1938), as a corrupt senator in Mr. Smith Goes to Washington (1939), and, of course, as Captain Renault in Casablanca (1942).
