My Little Ode To Woodstock

In my constant quest to get organized I have been going through some boxes of old photos this week and scanned these to share. Are you old enough to remember Woodstock? I certainly am, but I was a bit young and too naive to attend (according to my parents). Hmmm, I don't know about that, but the big event celebrated it's 40th anniversary this past weekend....and in my little tribute I have these photos of the era to share with you. These were taken by mon cher cousin Philippe in Paris and given to me many moons ago (non....you cannot have them back!). I don't think that any of these artists performed at Woodstock...but you get the picture!

Bob Dylan ~ great 'fro!

Luscious lips himself ~ Mick Jagger

Unless you are living under a rock.....you know!

The late Brian Jones from the Rolling Stones

Philippe (amateur paparazzi!) and Mick Jagger

Mick obessed. A signed photo!
Ahhhh Paul was so cute!
Who are these clowns? Errrr....Me and Mr. Fufu as rockers at a Halloween party awhile ago. Don't laugh too hard!


Rock on and will ttys!

I like them all, but love the last one the best. Thanks for making me smile, Janet. Does Mr. Fufu know you've shared that photo? I did try to click to enlarge it but as you said earlier, non!

The photos in Paris are fantastic - thanks for sharing them with us.

Off to dig up a photo of my hubby as a knight at Halloween ;)

Ooh Janet, you and Mr. Fufu look adorable! Yes, of course I remember ALL of those people! And I do remember Woodstock, although I had no desire to attend... I was in love with the Beach Boys at the time! (I still am!) I recently started a blog of my own, I would love to have you drop in for a visit... I have chatted with you so many times in our emails back and forth when I visit your shop, but would love a visit as well... Speaking of your shop, I am off for a look now! Will you be getting any more of those wonderful little Putz houses this year for Christmas? I would love more to go with my pink one from you last year... Julie Marie

Hi Janet

Yes of course I remember Woodstock - no chance of going for me, number one I was too young and number two we live in Australia, just a minor issue really! We had a local way smaller scaled one here called "Sunbury" - those where the days!!

Loved your photos

Fund post!!
