Woodstock Party and Irish Fest, OH MY

Motto of the day.  And of course a few peace cookies....
It was another crazy weekend.  We hosted a 45th anniversary of Woodstock Party for a few friends.  As you might expect, there is a history related to the Woodstock Party....

In 1989, Mike and friends hosted a 20th anniversary of Woodstock party which they called "Cornstock" since they held it next to a cornfield on a large farm outside of Indy.

Fortunately Cornstock was video taped, and watching this old VCR tape of Mike and friends looking a lot younger, enjoying live music and maybe a wee bit of alcohol always generates lots of laughs!

On Saturday we hosted the 45th anniversary of Woodstock party for some of the original gang from Cornstock.

It was a beautiful, sunny, 65-degree day, and we spent the afternoon in the backyard listening to some very large Crate Speakers and Mike's "Woodstock" play list".

Hope the neighbors also enjoyed the music!

We all dressed in our "hippie" best, and enjoyed good food, a few beers and a wonderful bonfire.

And of course we broke out the Cornstock video for some good laughs.

Relaxing by the fire where we burned the old wood from the porch.  Love it!


By now you know that Mike and I never sit still.

So on Sunday, we decided to catch the last day of the Irish Fest at Military Park in downtown Indy.

We enjoyed a beautiful Fall day with a few Smithwick's beers, fish and chips and great Irish music by bands Tallymore and The Elders.

And the people watching was lively with men in kilts and everyone wearing green.

 I'll remember this day for a very long time.  Relaxing with my sweetie on a beautiful day with live music.  It doesn't get any better than this.

And Sunday night we just crashed. Plain and simple.  Maybe we're just getting too old for such a busy weekend?  Nah, I doubt it.
