I posted this early today it disappeared after some people were nice enough to offer condolences.
Barney was a 2 year old Scottish Terrier who died this morning. Up until yesterday he was a very happy and sweet dog.He was always wagging his tail and believe it or not he loved the Grateful Dead.When I put on the 70's shows with Bertha, Sugar and Scarlett I would get up and dance, Barney as a puppy would stand on 2 legs I would grab his front paws and we would dance. We did this at least a few times a week. He was very understanding of the two cats we have and put up with a lot from them. At Halloween he would very proudly wear a ridiculous pumpkin costume and walk around the block with my kids and me.
He died today from what appears to be an anuerism. We have received dozens of phone calls and visits from friends. He was a great dog and was the first person I spoke to in the morning and the last person I said goodnight to. This afternoon I got the new Terrapin CD and Bertha opened but I just didn't fell like dancing. Maybe in a few days.
We love you Barney,
And the road goes on forever....
Someone told me blind dave died last year.
I used to see him in Chicagoland in the 80's. I even toured with him way back around Ohio and Mich.
Anyway, Peace be upon him.
The first family who introduced me to the grateful dead lived in west akron (Kalli, Florida Girl, SKY) now just going to shows you always meet new ones
Thank you for those memories. See ya in Phili. Stay kind
Hey, Pete, coming home just now and read your message. It's funny that you mentioned the boys playing some of my husband's favorites. Listening to Bertha on my way to work this morning made me think of the same thing. Every song played during spring tour will have a memory attached.
Listening for the secret, searching for the sound
As always, SuzieQ
I hope you get the Scarlet/Fire, Lovelight and a few of your late husband Allen's favorites as well.
Roll away the dew!
It's been a very long strange trip these past 17 months after losing my husband Alan. We went to so many shows during the 70's, 80's, 90's and into '04/'05. Will be seeing the boys in Greensboro and the Hook in two weeks and will be starting a new era of seeing them w/o my bear but want so bad to feel that feeling 'cause the music has never stopped.Hope that Billy will be feeling the lovelight 'cause he so reminds me of my dancin' bear. For years they looked like brothers. I'll be on the floor waiting for "Scarlett/Fire". A new beginning for me that is going to be the rest of my deadicated life.
You knew without asking she was into the blues.
As always, suzieQ
missing their loved ones today.

Peace & Love,Gigi
