8/10/2012 Getting ready

I just ordered my lederhosen shorts and suspenders, my lederhosen socks and a hat to match. What a sight! Plus music like what’s in the album on the left and a German flag. Now all we need is for the book to roll off the presses and for you to show up at my release party from 2-5 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 16, at the Feasting Fox, 4200 S. Grand in South St. Louis.
