So, it’s back to a relatively calm month for the blog. Lots of you are obviously still stopping by to read.
And now, for the August Blogs of the Month:Numero-Uno:
We Were Robbed
Although the furor over the “phantom foul” post has died down, this entry still comes in at number one, by a factor of three, over its closest competition. (That’s down from it being most popular by a factor of TEN last month…) My hunch is that it will continue to move down through the ranks, and drift off into obscurity. Which is as it should be for all blog entries. Numero-Two-o:
Prairie Chapel Road
What a pleasant surprise! I can only surmise that, since Camp Casey is taking place down in Crawford, Texas once again, that many people out on the internet are searching the name of the road, and coming up with this blog on the song. I’m pleased that this one’s come back around. Sadly, my life did not allow me to get back down there this year. And camp breaks at the end of this weekend. It’s a real shame to be as close as I am and not to go, but it’s just where life is right now. Still, I’m pleased folks are finding the song. It was downloaded another 156 times this month…making it my most downloaded song for a full calendar year. Numero-Three-o:
Again, I can only surmise there’s lots of folks surfing for the name, and finding the entry. Recently, several of you who have stumbled on my site have also written to say that you were sorry you missed the Tribute Show. And at least two of you have asked me if I know any updates on Dan’s condition.
The show was great, and I don’t know how he’s doing.
My only observation is that there’s not much new news coming out about Dan and his fight with prostate cancer. I hope that “no news is good news.” But I’ll observe that with celebrities, it often isn’t.
I really want to be wrong on this, and Ireally hope he’s doing better. Numero-Four-o:
If Everybody Claims Victory, Does Everybody Win? (Israel and Hezbollah)
Pleased that folks read about this situation. Concerned that nothing really has happened since to resolve it. So I’ll observe that this probably means there’ll be more fighting soon. Numero-Five-o
What a pleasant surprise! I have absolutely no idea why this one got read so much this month. Is something up with Buck that I don’t know about? Anyway, he’s a wonderful human being, and the story of his omission from the Baseball Hall of Fame still chaps my hide. So, I’m glad others are reading about it too.
