hey keith and arthur,

deer creek - indpls. peace, shack ----- hey guys one little piece of advice that i would like to share is simple: keep in touch, stay connected! meetings are great and this site is a super tool. this little wharf rats thingy is a double whammy with grateful dead interwoven with true sobriety. do not act like you both maybe shouldn't be here, this is indeed where you should be. stay connected to safe people and safe places. go to a meeting or a bunch, there are people who care. have a grateful day! peace, shack

keith

Hi Keith, I'm having trouble myself, and haven't kept sober. I don't have the answer. I think for me if I had more things to do, get involved in, then maybe I'd need to be clean. But I currently am not choosing anything to participate in. Write me if you want. Also, you gotta want help, or want to be sober, which I can't say I want now. Maybe I have to hit bottom worse. Should I get off this forum, since I am maybe not deadicated enough? I don't know. But I'm digging the dead, and that's something, or some connection with y'all.

frederick died at 3:32 p.m.

hey my friends, my little brother fred died today and in finding strength in this still new journey, i post this note. his first shows were atlanta omnis 4/1-2-3/90. soon thereafter he was boogie woogie at a bunch. i bet he was at at least 20. i have been thinking about that concert in the sky with jimi and jerry. his was the youngest in my immediate family and also the first to pass. i find strength and hope and a ton of promise ahead as i stay sober and clean through this time. suit up and show up, 3 weeks from my 18 month token; lucky me! he was 42 and survived by his cool loving wife kimberly. thank you for allowing me to tell you all; i love you! deer creek - indpls. peace, shack

But I'll... get back... on my feet....

Someday...

Great to see the yellow balloon floating in cyberdeadspace!

Knew I was a Wharf Rat before the deal went down.
Gave them my last $20 at Atlanta 1991 shows, but couldn't remember my
own address for the sign-up sheet! Ouch!
July 1993 I finally hooked up with the original Rats, Bill and Dr. Bob.
Then saw 5 shows sober, miraculously, plus many post-Jerry incarnations.
First Wharf Rat meeting was a HUGE one at Soldier Field, 1994.
Will stop in on this cyber-meeting again, for sure!

You can't go back and you can't stand still...
