Areas in Black will be Antique Brass.

If you have graphics, join the team and upload them on the GoFundMe page above.

The initial run will 25 coins.  Coins, not people, so toss in $20 per coin if you want one.  The first run is at cost to get things going.  Paul has made a generous donation and can be getting five coins if he chooses.  If more than $500 is raised your donation will be applied to the second run at $20 per coin.  The minimum production run is 25 coins so if you’re not in on the first run you’ll be waiting for a while.

Now have at it and tell me what you think. We unlimited changes to the design until they cut the die.

 

GERMAN BEER DRINKING SONGS

Auf! Auf! Auf dem Tisch und SING!

Up! Up! Up on the table and SING!

So there we were in Munich for Oktoberfest.  We walked into the Lowenbrau tent and they were playing Glenn Miller. “In the Mood”.  Quite a culture shock, not what I expected.  When we finally found a table we were wedged between the “Italian Beer Drinking Team”, some Army tankers from Baumholder and of course some Germans.  People would jump on the tables and shout a toast.

“Hier ist nach Deutschland!” [crowd roars]

“Ecco l’italia!”[crowd roars]

“Here’s to America!”[crowd roars]

At one point, I hoisted myself up and screamed:

“Here’s to daylight precision bombing!”[crowd roars]

I got back down and the German next to me, leaned over and said, “I heard that”. and winked. “PROST!”

I knew the songs and sang along.  My fellow Puppies felt left out.  We huddled.  We then belted out the theme to “Gilligan’s Island”.  The Germans loved it.  We thought we were so cleaver.  But the Army guys went into a huddle and then belted out theme song for “The Brady Bunch”. [crowd roars]

Thus began the Battle of the TV Show Songs.  We went back at forth. “Addams Family”, “Batman”, “Super Chicken”.  Google it.  Even the Germans kicked in with a good rendition of “Hi,ho,hi,ho, it’s off to work we go”. In  English no less.  The Italian Beer Drinking Team was too busy drinking.

Yeah, that’s Jon Cooley conducting.
