Woodstock. The event anticipated 200,000 people but ended up with over half a million. People abandoned their cars and walked for miles to get to the concert. People who attended shared food, beverages, drugs, and themselves with others. Three people died and while unconfirmed it has been rumored that two children were brought into the world at that event.
I don’t know why I was thinking about it. I didn’t go and I don’t know anyone who did. I started wondering if I missed something and that led to thoughts of Blogstock ‘08.
Imagine this – fifteen to twenty blogging friends and their family gathering together on a farm. . . oh say, outside of Tekamah, Nebraska. As far as music, we know our host does a good solo according to Jerry and Nora. I have heard Julie play the piano and she is great. We could share food – Cliff is a great cook. We could share beverages – Tekamah has a little coffee shop and Cliff is known for always having a pitcher of ice tea close by. We can share drugs – most likely, ibuprofen. Hopefully, no one will die and no one will be brought into the world either.
Blogstock ‘08!! Let me know if you're interested in attending, we'll get you the details.
