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.

We Are a Mobile Society, So In What State Were You Born?

With the weather as hot as it was over the weekend, it turned out to be a "lost" weekend as far as doing the things I wanted to do. I did manage to make it to Blues in the District Friday night, and while there I ran into a guy from Hannibal who recognized me. Then I met a guy and his wife from Kansas who was there as well.

It almost felt like I was around more "outsiders" than "locals."  It got me to thinking about just how mobile our society is.

That gift was two tickets to opening day of the baseball season. I haven't been able to give him tickets for 29 years now. He passed away in 1985 from Alzheimer's or dementia as it was known then.
