100 comments

Comments on this blog have picked up of late, with the Chinese restaurant entry drawing an impressive 16 reactions at last count.

But what’s really wild is the “things that aren’t here anymore” thread topped 100 comments on Monday. Whoa!

You can find that entry, and others like it, if you click on the “Reminiscin’” button on the right.

Frankly, by this point the “aren’t here anymore” entry is all over the map (literally). Its popularity hasn’t been lost on me, and as you’ve noticed in the weeks since then, I’ve had several daily blog entries on specific nostalgic topics such as Buffums’, with more to come. That’s probably more useful, at least for people who check this blog regularly.

Feel free to continue posting to the “things that aren’t” thread, and if you have ideas for more such nostalgia topics — for instance, places or things you’ve always been curious about — I’ll consider doing entries on them.

And while it may go without saying, I’ll say it anyway: Thanks to everyone who’s posted comments.

    My vote for things that are not here anymore is Peter Apanel. I for one am missing him…

    Hello Dave,
    It’s been over seven years since you’ve written “Things That Aren’t Here Anymore,” and it’s begging for an update.
    How about it?

      I’ll think about it. The original post is still there, and people now and then still comment on it.
