I love Counting Cars in the K of C Parking Lot the Next Morning

Another summer has come and gone, at least that is what people around here say once the Knights of Columbus BBQ has ended. The event featured large crowds with plenty of food and drinks.

What followed was “The Woodstock Music & Art Fair” in upstate New York.  Today marks the 46th anniversary of “Woodstock”, originally a three day music that eventually ended up being four days from August 15 through August 18.

One can only wonder what would have gone on during his morning radio show today if he were still with us. I guarantee it would have been fun because that is what Chuck was all about.
