This one got by me - did you hear the news about the Vibes man?

Organizer Ken Hays, an independent promoter handling the Gathering of the Vibes, wrote this note the day after Thanksgiving, making the announcement on the GATHERING OF THE VIBES Facebook page.

Did you miss it? I know I did! And I'm shocked because I spent Friday November 27th in THE Woodstock New York walking around with friends eating, drinking and shopping. The collective "Vibe Tribe's" wailing and gnashing of teeth should have made the earth shake so violently that I should have known something was up!

I mean music lovers and festival devotees have been gathering for the Vibes for the past 20 years. It's a tradition that started to honor the late Jerry Garcia of the Grateful Dead, and patterned after Woodstock. So I really should have gotten THE vibe as I was in THE Woodstock, but nada!

Ken Hays does say that never fear, The Gathering Of The Vibes will return. Click on NBCconnecticut for the whole story. Hey, sometimes even the coolest of things need to take a break to come back better.

That will be my wish for the Gathering of the Vibes!
