so many roads ...

hey kids, wanted to point out that a lot of people think they have everything figured out after a short time sober. sddictions are tricky - well cunning, and that. the point is about getting back on that horsie. way to go arthur! i do not know when it was that you got back and that is not the point even, it is justa thing about "keep coming back." everbody please keep connected, love ya! deer creek - indpls. peace, shack

yes, NOW is happening

glad to be sober. My last few shows were sober, but that was then, '90? I've fallen since then, but gotten back up. Any Texas rats out there? We have shows in Austin, no dead related lately. Wish I could see Phil in S.F. I'm a new Whart Rat, don't know anyone yet. Grateful.

the days between ...

hello rats, ah i am finally what i knew i shoulda been ... a rat! i really do not have anything specific to say, but that sobriety is great. i hear stuff on my ear buds that just wasn't there before, what fun. i love when some misguided person says "they are dead" about the band. what idiots, they just do not realize how little threads like this and these keep it so much alive. just like my ear buds; the creation of new options and of new possibilities is absolutely wonderful. ODAAT!!!! deer creek - indpls. peace, shack

New to Dead.net... Clean +16 Years

Hope everyone is doing well. I arrived here recently, through the direction of some Dead Head friends I have in the NA Program. Looking forward to the Ratdog Concert at the Greek Theatre in a few weeks. This will be my first Ratdog concert and I'm really looking forward to it. I saw The Eagles at the Staples Center and The Rolling Stones at Dodgers Stadium recently. I expect to have somemore fun at the Greek Theatre too. Take It Easy...

Peace & Hugs,

Nez
