Owrrrr! Can you dig it?
My hubby, George, turned 60 in July. Our daughter ‘Lily’ and her husband threw him a big old honkin’ party with a hippie theme. The ‘cool’ people wore funky threads, man.
Old farts – Young at heart!
Generations of hip relatives came from near and far.
I heard it through the grapevine.

The photographer who took all the good pics.
He said I could add special effects if I wanted!
A week before the party, Lily couldn’t stop talking about her costume, so Dane, Mr. Practical Joker, set out to copy her outfit. I had to play spy and find out what she was wearing.
Dane and his wife checked at two Forever 21 stores, but couldn’t find the matching top. The day of the party, they stopped at Forever 21 in Bakersfield and found it.
Yes, he got a lot of strange looks at the party!

Time to meditate.
The fad – John Lennon shades.

Fer sure, man.
“Da-na-na-na-nuh-nuh. They say it’s yer birthday!”
Turning 60 – Piece of cake!
Keep on trucking’!
“Carry on. Love is coming. Love is coming to us all.”

It starts when you’re always afraid. Step out of line,
the man come and take you away.” ~ Buffalo Springfield
Check it out! Barbara still has her original leather purse

Love those candy cigarettes!
“Old hippies don’t die, they just lie low until the laughter stops
and their time comes round again.” ~ Joseph Gallivan
“Down through all of eternity the crying of humanity, tis’ then when the hurdy gurdy man comes singing songs of love.”
