Give the birthday girl a hug for me Aggie!!!
I would attend but my lederhosen are at the cleaners.
Lederhosen is a southern German most Germans in Texas came from northern Germany (Prussia).
Happy Birthday Pru.
Chris Rybak is one of the bands that come every year. One year Pru could not make it so I called her so she could listen to Chris, then Chris grabbed the phone and started talking to her in the middle of a song.
Pru and I did have Prune kolackes at the Weihnachtsmarkt! Pru also walked a mile for a camel, got to see St Nick, the Grinch, lots hats and elves. We shared apple strudel and German pizza.
