More snow! Here's where I'd prefer to be again...

camp counselor at the New Boulevard Pool Day Camp, Bayonne Pool, 1968

Am revisiting, singing along in the sun with both the innocent and soul searching songs of summer 1968...

Lady Willpower, Gary Puckett and the Union Gap

It's A Beautiful Morning, The Rascals

Stoned Soul Picnic, The 5th Dimension

Grazing in the Grass, The Friends of Distinction

Classical Gas, Mason Williams

Mrs. Robinson, Simon &Garfunkel

Light My Fire, The Doors

Born to be Wild, Steppenwolf

Magic Carpet Ride, Steppenwolf

Sky Pilot, Eric Burdon & The Animals

Summer 1968

Omg, Petra, would I love to be there with you! I don't want to see another flake fall or I'll grow flaky! LOL K.

I can tell by the music, in just another year, Woodstock! Some major growing pains for U.S. in the 60's, actually beginning with the 50's. A wonderful time for collection consciousness! :)

petra michelle; Whose role is it anyway? said...

Here's to the sixties, K.! :))

Yep, it seems like just yesterday.
And so agree with the whole beat movement in the 50's. Then the civil rights', the anti-war, women's rights, environment, you name it movement... ;)) It was such a wonderfully collective time. Wonder whether it will ever happen again!

Stay safe and warm, K.! :))
