izzie, izzie, izzie... that would be ex-husband... aka, starter husband. The keeper husband has only seen one show- at the Nashville Municipal (he says it was an October show). He says he doesn't remember anything more than it was a half moon... 'nuf said!
Seriously, the ex is named Kirk Pickering, in the Nashville area (a Pittsburgh native). He was an early Well member- in fact (foggy brain here), I remember a Well shirt, and spending intermission at the Greek trying to meet other Well folks (or was in NYE at Kaiser? Oh crud...) Actually I think he wore that Well shirt to every show we went to for an entire summer tour... ICK! There was a Well party at David Gans' apartment we went to- Marye was there (later "met" her on a horse rescue board and quickly figured out the GD connection even tho we were both being respectable at the time, LOL)...
Does that help, Izzie?
Hi Drive. Great to see you! It's been a while.
tn2nadoes needs to cop to who her husband is for the Well folks hereabouts. But welcome, just the same!!!
And Drive. Does this babygirl's heart so good to see you here!
I'm tn2nadoes (not picky about caps, either) as I live in Tennessee & have 7 yr old twins who are officially a mess (TN 2 Nadoes). Most people just call me Vivi.
Went to my first (half) show at Morgantown, WV in 1983 and my last was RFK in 1990. Got to see a lot of great shows in between- and got a chance to see this great nation of ours- Lots of great stories there -skinning dipping in a "dry lake" outside of Salt Lake City on our way to The Greek, and the great spaghetti sauce incident (that was after a Midwestern show at some wonderful Shakespearean theatre, does anyone remember the name of this?) come to mind...
I'm an East Coast girl originally, came South for college & never left. My ex-husband was (and probably still is) a Well Member from the early days - I couldn't handle trying to read all the posts in that weird green type!
I've been a lot of things: a cook, caterer, advertising exec, copy writer, office manager, book keeper (ugh), gardener... I've worked in construction (even built an outhouse), graphic design, building design (my own home), music industry, been on the boards of some non-profits (in the arts , land conservation and in animal rescue) mostly in fundraising research (left the professional begging to others, LOL), and I'm now a full time Mom, Wife, Home-Maker, Farmer & Animal Rescuer. Yup, that would be 5 full time jobs! I do some specialty writing on the side, mostly procedure, health, information and fundraising brochures for a Pot Bellied Pig Sanctuary.
Yup... pigs... almost as cute as dancing bears.
Aud! Drive! Howdy!
hi, i'm aud. 7/18/72 Roosevelt, but really "got it" on the rail at the Spectrum on 9/21/72 during that Dark Star>Dew...
born and raised in Philly and live now in the western suburbs with my husband and my 2 kids and 3 cats. found the Well one Friday afternoon at work in June 1986 and have been there ever since, hosting the "philly" conference and the "tours" conference, which started many years ago as the spinoff place for all us deadheads on the Well to discuss tours in excruciating detail. these days i caretake a daily topic there with a list of that day's GD shows through history which makes for a lot of great reminiscing, and which i hope will find its way over here in a more multi-media format.
i'm a long suffering dedicated Philly sports fan, office manager, Jewish mother, and frequently wish to be on a cliff in Negril rather than in front of my laptop.

I grew up in Aspen, but went to college in both Boulder and Ft. Collins. My sister and her family live in Denver now, and my folks are still up in the mountains.
Colorado, eh? what part!? I've lived in Colorado Springs in the early/mid 90's and now in Bayfield.
Colorado, izzie? That's my home state!
Drive misses the dead...............
