What he's not telling you is that his twins, Abigail and Elliot, are the cutest danged kids ever. And I'm a mom saying that about someone else's kids!
(hi Bost! damn glad you made it!)
i've been married to melina for 6 years and we have 5 year old twins, abigail and elliot.
I'm an East Coaster transplanted to the Seattle area. Me and my wonderfully amazing wife have been together around 15 years. She isn't a Head so to speak but she went to shows and I went to shows "back in the day" but we never went to one together, exactly. She was, however, at that DC show that View from the Vault II was made of. (I would be jealous if I hadn't attended some really wild shows).
Anyhoo, we have a 4 year old boy whose favorite song is "Monkey and the Engineer." I, of course, have been playing guitar and singing that song to him his entire life, including in the womb. He now sings it. In fact, every night at the dinner table, we sing it together. The chorus is so much fun! I sing, "Big locomotive..." and he sings, "...RIGHT ON TIME!" (he yells everything.)
The rest of the fam is back in NJ where they belong. This 3000 mile buffer zone sure helps with the genetic harmony!
Great to see those of you here who also were on the old incarnation of the forums. More good times to come, for sure. It'll be neat to see how many of you I attended shows "with" without even knowing you. Funny how this GD thing will never die, huh?
was married to a non-hed for about 14 years, but left a few years ago. starting the new chapter in my life with my two teenage kids, who are great. my daughter is just like me, very hippie!!
nothing left to do but smile, smile, smile
Married to Beth for 15 years next month. Not that much of a Deadhead, but she had a suitably weird time at her first show back in '88 insides the dripping confines of the Rosemont Horizon. We're down to just one fur-child now, Lilly the rescued Berner, after we lost Auggie West at Christmas last year.
Been married ten years at the end of this month. FTR - xian, you are taking way longer to finish the process (sorry - inside joke). Two daughters - Cassidy is 6 and Jordan turned 4 last week.
My secret theory of parenting - children are actually vampires. They somehow extract your life force and use it themselves. As a result, you are always tired and they never are.
Married to Beth since July, 1994. We are both Deadheads and we met on the front row of Charlotte Coliseum (which they just imploded YESTERDAY) on 6/17/92. She saw Pigpen a couple of times but I was a late bloomer, so I never did. I still listen to a fair amount of Dead music in the car. We have 2 cats, Sierra and Bitsy (now Mr. B since he's gotten big). We live in the steamy woods of northern Durham County, NC.
married to dan, 14 years this month. living with him and my two boys, josh (22) and steve (16) and our 3 cats (7, 10 and 13 years old they are now).
dunno if i'd call dan a deadhead, though the (gd) conference on the Well was where we first met. took josh to a couple dozen shows from the time he was 6 months old until the summer of '95 (when he actually went to one that i didn't, my last was '95 spring tour). poor steve is the odd one out, never did get him to a show...
Married to Jill for 20 years come this December. Three amazing children: Phoebe, 16; Noah, 14; Milo, 13. 3 cats: 2 black kitties, Louie and Dinah; one love-bug orange tabby Hercules. A senegal parrot named Connie. A cockatiel named Ziggy. And a snake that everybody just calls The Snake.
