The beginning of November brought Wurstfest--a Salute to Sausage. Why do we salute sausage? Because the strong Texas-German heritage requires that we enjoy a festival where everything is eaten from a stick and beer is enjoyed while listening to polka bands and watching people who know how to polka. Why does our Texas-German heritage require this? I have no idea, but I will certainly enjoy the sausage and potato pancakes while they are available. Our faculty, along with Shepherd of the Hills' and Concordia's faculty took a bus to New Braunfels and enjoyed a Friday evening. I had fun catching up with friends I rarely see and even my own fellow faculty members I rarely get to socialize with these days.
