whew!

so thanks for hanging in there, and for putting up with Chronology Gremlin. but you're up to date now, as of 12 November. When I go home for Thanksgiving, I'll collect my old Grateful Dead Daybook that has interesting little bits of info, and I'll edit through and try to add them in as well as the show highlights.
