like we might have critical mass among the golfers here to start a golf thread...
I was checking back on older posts and saw that fluffanutter broke his leg playing golf. I played golf one time in my life and it was a lot of fun. Me and a buddy each had a "mushroom" sandwich and it took us 5 hours to play 9 holes. Pissed off several golfers when we were playing their ball by accident (didn't take the cussing at us personally because they all looked the same). Thank God for those benches at each hole 'cause we would have looked extra rediculous sitting on the ground laughing all day. That was about 22 years ago and i'm pretty sure we are still not welcome there. Hope this made you smile and that you are feeling better.
It would be sacrilege to close this thread. FREEFORM is EXACTLY what the dead and the original acid tests were all about!!! It doesn't matter what the subject is, it's just supposed to be light hearted and fun. we need to laugh and laugh at ourselves more often. if there is one thing to be said about the dead community it is definitely that we are creative and freeform. Let's get goofy!!
just for laughs. what's in a name? you know how the name "jerry garcia" just rolls off your tongue so smoothly, well, what might the future have held for him if his name had been "Shlochty Gibslinger Nowwowweegustemineroffhusen"? Lets say that his musical path stayed the same. Bill Graham presents a night with.............. say what?!! They would have had to add a couple of extra inches to the hand bill for starters. Happy Freaky Friday everybody!!!! :-D ( I'm having a blast scooting around these forums!!!!) God bless us, everyone (tiny tim)
of course if people posted freeform stuff here it would be livelier...but it stays.
Keep this thread going Mary, please. There aren't enough open space topics and this is one of them. Thank you!
rather than All Recent Posts, it tends to have fewer product-oriented updates, fwiw.
Please reconsider TL..many have felt like you do at times, and then just felt like asses when they come sneaking back ;-)
Sure, it ain't like the old days, and a lot of the forums are dead. Even if you post on recipes, great adventures, gardening, pets etc nobody normally picks it up, but I guess most of the socialising happens on facebook these days . It is a shame they let the chatroom die and that the recent posts gets clogged with store updates, but you can filter that stuff. And there are some good times to be had on Blairs blogs where a lot of nice folks gather and the trolls get short shrift.
A few old friends have vanished, but I am here, Hal pops in sometimes, Mr Pid and others. You gonna just abandon us? So please don't jump, just step aside for a bit if you need. .
I understand completely your sentiment. Very commercial and very few people around regularly.
I think, this being the "official" site of the Grateful Dead, you cannot speak your mind freely. You can, but you can't -- if you know what I mean. Nobody will delete your post but there is a silent seething in the shadows if it is not deemed appropriate. Not that I ever cared a whit 'bout the party line.
There is more interesting conversation about the GD on other sites. Whatever, it's all good. If you stick around more people will show up, eventually.
marye please delete my account. I have thought about it and I am sure.
Product product product product...bah!!
Search for "spinning spinning free" topic didn't find the thread I wanted, and after searching back 25 pages and still not finding it...enough is enough.
Seems like chat will never be back, and with topics so buried in sales, I have no use for this site anymore. That's too bad, because I had enjoyed it here very much, and "met" some great folks; but I feel like the community spirit is gone, thus so am I.
Be well all! Some of you know how to find me elsewhere.
