You know Steve, I was in the Air Force, stationed in Germany, when Woodstock happened. As it wasn't 'earth shattering news in Germany, I never even heard about it until my local, weekly paper arrived. (My parents had the NY Daily News sent to me once a week, so I could keep abreast of what was happening at home). It turns out my younger brother went, was one of the ones who didn't have a ticket but they ended up letting them in. He was there for days 2 and 3.

I know if I was home, I wouldn't have went anyway, as my crew cut just wouldn't have fit in.  =)) =)) =)) =)) =))

If you visited the National Weather Service (or it might've still been the Weather Bureau then) at the Federal Building, you probably did. Lenny.
