Hey Now....Life just gets better and better. First show 3/7/81 Colefield House last hopefully won't be for long time. After rough ending which included getting out of the scene. Last drink on Jerry's B-day 8/1/1999, Now I get to see as much music as time allows. AA,NA, Wharfrats,Jellyfish, and any other yellow balloon fly'n gets my attention. Here in D.C. we love our sobriety and our music....come visit.
My first show was Dec. 29, 1968. Last drink/buzz Apr. 23, 1983. Next show RD Nov. 17, 2007. Thanks to 12 steppers, Wharf Rats, cool people with their heads on straight, and all my friends I'm still truckin and not pushing the flowers up from the brown side of the ground.

thanks to the resta y'all too, just for postin' here-i been strugglin' a bit lately, having trouble enjoyin' life like i should & havin' trouble finding the courage to change the things i can-gotten sorta burnt out on NA in my area, so it's nice to find another way to stay in contact w/those in recovery-i know it's all just feelings, & they'll pass like everything else, but it's gettin' sorta old puttin' one foot in front of the other day after day-oh well, at least it ain't as bad as it used to be, a dopeless hope fiend is a better place to be than a hopeless dope fiend
