Today was the grillfest barbecue party at the Brunnenmühle (Russ’s office building). 


It’s a time to socialize, reflect on the previous year’s work and accomplishments, and welcome the newcomers to the department (my time in York exempted me from being a newcomer, thereby exempting me from having to work the grill).  There were a couple of varieties of beer, vegetable and potato salads, fresh pretzels, and lots of meat: red hots, white hots, thick bacon wrapped on a stick (delicious), chicken, and pork cutlets.

Unfortunately I had to leave early for our first German class!  But it was a nice afternoon, and the beer helped me get through better appreciate the German language.

    Your Aunt Amy forwarded your blog site. It’s great! I hope that when April and Rusty get to England they will have enough computer savvy to do the same. Right now she only sends me pics on the phone. They report to England by August 30th. Perhaps you all can hook up some time. They will be there 2-3 years. We are hoping to come over at Christmas and then again in the summer with Randy’s family. Enjoy your time. It looks like you are.

    Mmm, fresh pretzels. You should make beer-before-class a habit 🙂

    Have any Spiessbratten yet? You will have to head north to Idar Oberstein for that. Worth the trip. Ask Kate, at least about Idar Oberstein.
