Ein Prosit Mr. Turner!

Thursday, November 4, 2010 @ 02:11 PM

You would probably never guess this, but every October John N. Turner officially opens Oktoberfest in Kitchener – Waterloo.  This year was one of 30 yearly treks for him I think.

I went with him this year and in the usual rock star adoration he gets from the hundreds and hundreds of people at any event he attends, he delivered opening remarks in his usual precision and histrionics.

He recounted the time, years ago when he was invited by Helmut Kohl to open Oktoberfest in Germany, he recounted the words he used then, and in perfectly pronounced German, he offered greetings to the patrons of 2010’s Oktoberfest.

I’ve traveled with Mr. Turner to many parts of Canada and throughout the world.  In every setting and at event he truly is treated like a rock star.  And like finely brewed German ale, he gets better with age!
