Do you know any hippies?
In July 2012 our daughter Amy and her husband threw a hippie-themed party for George’s 60th birthday. These are some of the photos I took, but the best pics were taken by Paparazzi Paul, which you can see in the original post about the party.
This photo of Mike and Barbara is one of my favorites. I love their tie-dye clothes, their headbands, and Barbara’s candy cigarette. They look like real hippies, but they’re regular fun-lovin’ folks.
Welcome, Jim and Linda! They went to an upscale thrift store the day of the party and found these cool threads.
Paper lanterns hanging from the old plum tree added more color.
Friends and relatives of all ages came from near and far to celebrate.
Good times! We partied into the night.
George’s old-time friends.
Peace out, man!

This post is part of The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge. After seven years of photo challenges, this is the last installment. The theme is All-Time Favorites.
I hope you enjoyed my psychedelic favorites.
When George turned 40 in 1992, I threw the first hippie-themed party, and we got some great video clips of it. For more hippie fun (and ideas to throw your own hippie party), here you go:
What are your thoughts? Do these photos make you dizzy? Do you like parties with themes that make them livelier? Have you ever known a real hippy? I’d love to hear from you!
