Fess Parker Memorial

I was in San Antonio on Friday and naturally I paid a visit to the Alamo, and if you're wondering the answer is yes.  I did ask about the basement.  


If you've never been to the Alamo its actually very small and in the middle of downtown.  Since it was spring break the line to get in was longer than I have ever seen.  I've been to the Alamo many times and I have never waited in line to get in.  So I went to the back and snuck in though the exit....

Anyway the whole reason for this post is that they had a Fess Parker Memorial at the Alamo!  Right outside the exit they had a framed picture of Fess as Davy Crockett with a coon skin hat on top. They also had a guest book people could sign and write a memory of Fess that was going to be sent to his family.    


                                          

In case you're wondering the Alamo employee laughed when I asked her about the basement.  She said people do not ask as often as they used to but it still happens.  She also told me that there are 2 basements on the Alamo grounds but not one under the Alamo itself.  If you have no clue what I am talking about....sorry.
