Octoberfest!

octoberfest

Today marks Octoberfest in downtown Appleton, WI. Yes there are ^this^ many peeps on College Avenue from about 10 am to 6 pm. There are several stages of live music, arts and crafts, an inordinate amount of food vendors and BEER. What is Octoberfest without BEER? The sky is blue today and highs are expected at 77 degrees. Perfect!

Natasha and I will be among the throngs of peeps. A report may or may not come later, depending on the amount of BEER consumed and whether or not we get lost in this crowd.

Later, gator…

Rocky was severely wounded in Viet Nam, and was initially told he would never play football again. Art Rooney wanted him back with the Steelers. He spent a year on the injured reserved list, and he was waived a couple of times, but he made it back to the starting lineup. He rushed for over 1,000 yards in 1976 and he earned four Super Bowl rings before retiring from football. Perhaps a little known fact, he was born and raised in Appleton, Wisconsin. I remember reading about Appleton a couple of times. I wonder if Rocky ever went to Octoberfest? […]
