The topics of posts you have been reading most over the last six months are wide-ranging. Concerns about the Alamo and Alamo Plaza tend to be remain your high priority, and the primary battle between Jerry Patterson and George P. Bush for Land Commissioner will keep these issues on the front page. I love it that you continue to help me promote Helen Madarasz as a ghost actively haunting Brackenridge Park.
The interest in our favorite restaurant in Budapest might arise not as much from regular followers as from Fricska’s loyal fans on facebook. San Antonio’s current Tricentennial Celebration seemed to send more people in search of “The San Antonio Song” written in 1907 by Williams and Alstyne. Thanks for your interest in my quest for a mini-Kate, and it makes me happy some of you heading to Guanajuato were aided by our restaurant suggestions.
So here’s your top 12, with the numbers in parentheses representing the rankings from six months ago:
- Dear Mayor and City Council: Please don’t surrender Alamo Plaza, 2017 (1)
- The Madarasz Murder Mystery: Might Helen Haunt Brackenridge Park?, 2012 (2)
- Postcard from Budapest, Hungary: Currently suffering from case of miss-you-Fricska blues, 2017
- Please put this song on Tony’s pony and make it ride away, 2010 (11)
- Brackenridge Park: ‘Is it still a postcard place?,’ 2017 (4)
- What’s up top counts, 2017 (3)
- Thanks to the Mister on his day for persistence in obtaining my Mother’s Day present, 2017 (8)
- Postcard from Guanajuato, Mexico: Wishing these dining spots were not 600 miles away, 2016 (6)
- Postcards from San Antonio a Century Ago, 2016 (5)
- How would you feel about the Alamo with a crewcut?, 2011 (7)
- Postcard from Campeche, Mexico: Sittin’ on Campeche Bay, 2017 (12)
- Postcard from Bergamo, Italy: Bidding Italy ciao, for now, 2017
And the best part of number 12 on your list is that our bidding ciao to Italy “for now” appears accurate. Will be taking you there through pictures later in 2018. For now, though, delivery of postcards from the fall trip to Mexico City was delayed by the holidays. They will be dribbled out over the next month.
