I'm marrying my sweetie in July. We've been together since '90. She's not much of a Deadhead, but she does appreciate them in due measure, and she saw them long before I did, sneaking up from Palo Alto when she was still in high school to see Chuck Berry at the Fillmore when the Dead happened to open, and then again at the wall of sound test in '73. My first show didn't come till '84. I also recently found a copy of the Golden Road single from '67 in her old 45 collection!
We also live in Oakland. Reprazent, yo!
I am here to vouch for the wonderfulness of Dwaite's wife. She's one of my favoritest non-hippie girls to have fun with on mini-vacations!
I have to add that the Mixed Marriage metaphor I used in my intro was stolen entirely from Marcy.
It's my wife, my dog, and me in Chicago. My wife, Marcy is a jewel and loving wife. She is not a deadhead, and enjoys telling most anyone we see that this is a mixed marriage. She is from the east coast, I'm from the west, we met in Chicago (that must be our middle ground), fell in love, and have been married since 2000. Our 4 month old puppy - Moose is our latest addition.
I'm married to a wonderful rock'n'roll Jersey Girl named Rita. She met the Dead in 1968, four years before my first show, but she was more of a Van Morrison fan when I met her in 1992. We got married on 9/11/94 and we live in Oakland with our two wonderful cats, Groucho and Hugo.
I was born and raised in Southern California; I'm the oldest of nine children and let's just say the Christmas scene at my folks' house is large and chaotic. In a good way. I'm the only one who managed to move north and stay here though; I live in Oakland.
The family I live with consists of my dogs Rex and Callie. That's them in the picture in my profile, but factor in that Callie, a puppy on my lap in the photo, is now 9 years old, and Rex is pushing 13.
I'm fortunate in having a large extended family of friends, almost all of them somehow traceable to some Deadhead connection, whether they're Deadheads or not. I'm hoping a lot of them will settle in here.
I've got a cute little family! My husband of, oh call it 16 years, is a recently retired Army officer. (you can do the math and figure out that I was an officer's wife for those first 15 years.) It's a mixed marriage, though, as he is very much not a Deadhead. It's good that his best friend from childhood is a Head - at least he came pre-trained. We have a perfectly wonderful 13 year old son, who used to be David Gans's youngest fan. I'm pretty sure there are younger ones now, though.
I don't live with my guys though, sadly. Maybe next year! and I keep the cat, and they keep the dog. Doha and Chloe, respectively.
