Go Ahead, Show Off a Little...

Here's the bulletin board/virtual refrigerator door/etc. for showing and telling about accomplishments you're proud of. Your art. Your graduation. Your promotion. The garden you just planted. Your kid's karate trophy. You get the idea...

Yay Ted!

Let's see...Mary Jane, that's Winter Park, no?
I'm thinking about retiring so I can listen to the E72 Box.
I'm going to Steamboat this summer - it's going to be odd with no snow. I'll be training there because three weeks later is the SF 1/2 marathon. I did it last year and it about killed me - guess I'm a glutton for punishment! (My oldest daughter will be with me and hopefully she'll get me through with a little less agony).

Have to say I'm a bit envious. Enjoy!!!

Congrats!

Gr8fulTed ........Now, this isn't as good, but could be funny. A few weeks ago, my 7 yr. old grandson got in trouble @ school for peeing on the grass @ the playground. (my son thinks he was showing off or something) Last week, he got an award for highest academic score in the 2nd grade.....go figure-one extreme to the other....OH, maybe he takes a bit after me....haha....:)))

To Miss Adavie

So sorry for your lost, life is a fragile gift that is lost easy. I would suggest He's Gone,
And to lay me down. Fire on the mountain and Shakedown street. Do you know what your father's favorite songs were? I would try to include them. I hope that this helps you in your time of sorrow.

I had to move

After 33 years of working, I retired today: Look for me on the slopes at Mary Jane starting Monday March 7th and throughout the month of March. I'll have my fly rod too if I see some stream water flowing freely....

Can I talk about the novel I

Can I talk about the novel I just published?? Available on Amazon.com? Called "The Hallucinogenic Bible". Based on years following the Dead around the country, being harassed by cops, sleeping in rest areas, selling sodas and grilled cheese, arguing with friends about the religious implications of the Dead?

Is this the kind of thing I can brag about?? I hope so.....

child of two deadheads needs some guidance

I'm not sure if I'm asking this in the right forum area, but I hope so...
Both of my parents have been life-long Deadheads. They started going to shows together in the mid-70's, and the music didn't stop until their divorce.
My dad was Tim Davie, not sure if his name will ring a bell for anyone. He had a lot of friends, met a lot of awesome people, and always loved to have a good time. He worked his @$$ off every single day of my life to support his family. He passed away suddenly on Saturday February 12- less than a week ago. He was only 54.
My younger brother and I are making arrangements for his memorial service. We have decided to create a soundtrack for him- and also for us. We were able to find a couple of songs that remind us of him. But even though we both grew up dancing around barefoot to the Dead, we are both at a complete loss for GD songs for the soundtrack.
Can anyone suggest any GD songs that would be a good addition to Dad's soundtrack?
Thanks so much for any suggestions
<3
