Grandma & Grandpa Woodstock Get Stuck At Airport, Magic Happens

Up in Ye Olde Woodstock, New York, there’s an old couple who go by Grandma and Grandpa Woodstock. The pair both attended the original Woodstock (unrelated to the Limp Bizkit violence and rape-fest of 1999), but didn’t meet until the Rainbow Gathering a few years ago. The be-dreadlocked and whiskered couple got married at a Gathering in 2009, and return each year to celebrate and, presumably, barter macrame wall hangings for drugs.

The couple took a bus to the Montana Gathering location, but were told they wouldn’t be allowed on a return bus, because of their dog. So they purchased plane tickets for the return trip to Woodstock. The only problem? Ninety-year-old Grandma Woodstock didn’t have an ID. “She forgot where she put it probably about 10 years ago,” explained Grandpa. The pair eventually got on a flight, but not before they became mini-celebs at the Salt Lake City airport. Peace and love, in the air! [Fox 13]
