Harrison Hot Springs Lakefront Car Show August 15

Harrison Hot Springs Lakefront Car Show August 15

Some of us have a love that we unashamedly lavish attention on both in private and in public.  We take the time, without being reminded, to nourish the relationship.  To keep our love in perfect repair so that it doesn’t crumble away in tiny increments that would soon become small holes and then gather speed and become even larger holes, that soon become costly and difficult to repair.
We are careful and respectful and considerate.

Our hands are gentle and our thoughts are forward thinking to how we can best maintain the beauty and integrity of our love.

  • Cars
  • the feel of umblemished steel & aluminum
  • the admiration of a perfect back end
  • the jewel-like tones of her color
  • the perfect symmetry of her grill
  • the soft, lush feel of perfectly worn leather
  • the strength hidden beneath her hood
  • the ability she allows us to harness that strength
  • the sweet sound of her voice
  • and the knowledge that she is mine

Harrison Oktoberfest 2014

EIN PROSIT:
At every great party that involves alcohol, certain songs will be sung that will create a group-memory-sound-track guaranteed to instantly transport you and your friends back to whatever you were eating, wearing, drinking, doing or wish-you-hadn’t-been-doing                      .
Turn that “Party” into a “Beer Fest” with the Oompah band blasting out “Ein Prosit” every 20 minutes or so and the song unites the Beer Fest Lovers around the world.  Seriously, where else can you find lots of men in leather shorts all happily yelling out good cheer?  It is an unashamed group collaboration that helps everyone get “nice and lubricated”. 

Ein Prosit has only been sung in its modern version since 1957.   It really isn’t a salute to genius lyric talent.  The composers of the modern version, Gerhard Jussenhoven and Kurt Elliot were most likely good and drunk when they came up with the words.  In German there are a total of 8 different words.  It’s a little more complicated in English as there are 12 words to memorize (including words such as “a” and “to”).   Ultimately, the song is a mutation of a much older version, so Gerhard and Kurt were not really challenged with creating a song so much as making sure that the excuse to chug your beer continued into the twenty-first century in an organized fashion.  

Whenever Ein Prosit is played, you are obliged to:

stand up with your beer held high, sway along to the tune, toast with everyone at the table and chug  your   mug.  At festivals the song is often followed by a charge of “Schenkt ein, trinkt aus, schenkt ein, trinkt aus!”(I poured you one, drink it up, I poured you one, drink it up!).
An alternative closing phrase from the band leader is "Prost ihr Säcke!" (Cheers, you p&%$s!), to which the crowd replies in unison "Prost du Sack!" (Cheers, you p&%$s!).


German Lyrics to Ein Prosit

Ein Prosit, ein Prosit
Der Gemütlichkeit
Ein Prosit, ein Prosit
Der Gemütlichkeit.
OANS ZWOA DREI! G'SUFFA!

English Lyrics to Ein Prosit
A toast, a toast
To cheer and good times
A toast, a toast
To cheer and good times.
                                                                                           ONE TWO THREE! DRINK UP!
