    Nothing says Octoberfest like a party in central Virginia in September!

    Bier Here! Bier here! Ofalietrede Ho Ho! Octoberfests are big fun. To polka is easy and all the girls want to dance. I did a bunch with my Uncle Henry in Connecticut in the 70's. Seems like every town had one. Good times. Good on you Gents, Enjoy!

    My son and his girlfriend arrived in Munich yesterday.

    So far the only pictures they've sent are of a line-up of empty krugs and a large fairground ride. Anyone else think that could be a very bad combination?

    Simpler is better, except when complicated looks really cool.

    By memory, without looking at my sister's genealogy site, I think I am about 1/16th German.

    Drinking Bavarian beer by the liter, anything goes.

    1972, LaCrosse Wisconsin.
    As we approached the enterance of the first beer tent a celebrant was coming out. He got this funny look on his face clapped his hand over his mouth and blew twin geysers of beer from his nostrils. If ever there was a sign, I declared "boys this is it!".
    Turned out to be the Old Style tent. One long side was just semi trailers full of kegs. Once the bartenders knew I was born in LaCrosse beer was free.
    You know you are doing it when pissing in the trough and drinking a beer at the same time.

    Regrettably your post at #11 doesn't reach the same high standard you achieved at #6. Definitely #11 is the very definition of something about lipstick and sows or some such.
