Harold, you are a cruel man. I would SOOOOOOO love to be there. The food sounds fantastic, and the bier....the bier.....from the oldest brewery in the world!

Can you believe how easy Bergdahl  got off ? that is outrageous. what a slap in the face to the UCMJ . what kind of message does that send to other guys that think they can desert their post and suffer little to no consequences. He should of received some time in the Brig. What the hell is going on?

Novemberfest!!!
Sunday, November 12th

We will be tapping a very special WOODEN KEG of Weihenstephan Festbier shipped directly from Germany. It is only one of three of these special kegs shipped to the United States and the only one in Florida.
    
What a great way to celebrate and honor our amazing Veterans - especially the ones who served and were stationed in Germany.
    
We will have brunch specials ranging from Black Forest Ham and cheese Egg Casserole, Thuringer sausages, German breads and pastries and of course Schnitzel a la Holstein. Please make reservations for this very special event and get here early. There is only one keg so it will go fast!!!!

Nice looking carp never caught one of them I hear they are very boney not so good to eat.

Hooked this carp in the dorsal fin while trolling and drug him in sideways. Thought I hooked a bucket of rocks! You can see how pumped up my arms are from reeling.

You got me at Yuengling, Shannon.

Hey Sig have you ever rebuilt a Harley golf cart ? I have only seen one of them before but then I do not see many golf carts. I was working at a mobile home park and this old boy drives up in it and I said hey man nice Harley you got there I did not know they made them I think AMF had something to do with them.
