X-Mas Down in Dogpatch


It’s Christmas time again. The Christkindlsmarkt is open, the Glühwein is flowing copiously, and I’ll be damned if the concession stands outside aren’t selling reindeer-burgers. Reindeer? At Christmas? You have to hand it to the Germans; despite their abysmal statist politics, they offer absolutely no quarter to the PETA crowd.


Here are some horribly grainy photos, taken with my phone, of the Augsburg town square, where this year’s Christmas Market is in full swing


Augsburger Rathaus

City Hall and Town Square, Augsburg


Augsburger Weihnachtsbaum

Augsburg’s Christmas Tree

Lots of people chugging Glühwein (hot mulled wine). It’ll warm your cockles.


Maybe I’ll take a real camera out some time and get some pics for you folks. Christmas time is really beautiful over here, and this year it looks like we’ll get some snow, too.

Don't change a thing. The only thing lacking is a splitting headache that's delivered with the rising of tomorrow's sun.

Mit Sauerkraut, Araber. Rube is feasting on reindeer, and I am so jealous....

Wow...Augsburg looks a heck of a lot like the scenery I saw in Helen, Georgia during my walk back from the bar. The focus is PERFECT.

When I saw that picture, I said "Damn! That looks like Augsburg!" I was born and raised there and later my brothers were born there and went to the American high school across the BX/Commissary complex. During Christmas, I have left many pints of semi-digested knockwurst and gluwein mix on those cobblestone walkways. To keep my inner demons at bay, I claim I did it for the children.

Hey Rube --

I was heartened by the news that Der Deutscher gibt kein quarter to the PETA idiots, but the threat is growing: http://www.PETA2.de

Sollten wir sie zerstren, bevor sie sich vllig entwickeln (wie in den USA)?

Yo, Flashman! Ich glaube da in diesem Fall Abtreibung vllig in Ordnung ist ;-)
