Happend to read that you worked at FALSTAF,that was my dad's favorite beer.I was able to find a FALSTAFF serving tray at Bussies flea Mrkt.,then I found two beer bottles with the lables still in tact.,in pristeen condition in BANDERA.
What Iam looking for now is anything that pertains to FALSTAFF in memory of my dad.LEON'S ICE house and SMITTY"S
bar and grill both o W.W.WHITE RD.,were his hangouts.I wonder what ever happened to the clock out side of SMITTY'S.
Brown's on RIGSBY was another.

Ah, the Richter, Butter Crust Bakery! The smell of baking bread permeated the entire area, including
Playland Park if the wind was coming from the right direction. The grandson (great grandson?) of the
Richters attended Garner Jr. High in the late 1950's. He was a character! I'm not sure the family still
owned the bakery at that time, but the Richter signature sign still adorned the bakery. The glass front
allowed you to see the bakery in operation.

when i worked for civil service back in the early 80's, i used to fish at a little pond in the cemetery, on ft. sam houston, right off harry wurzbach[on the golf course side]. caught perch every morn before work. i also used to feed a squirrel at that pond by hand. he would come up and take a piece of cracker i held in my hand, between the fingers, and step back, and start munching on it. damdest thing i ever saw. didn't have any cell phone or camera back then, or it would have made a great photo.
