My first Whart Rat meeting - though it was far from my first "program-related" meeting,
Was at Soldier Field on 6/22/91
We had Grrreat seats - it was a grrreat show.....my first "Dark Star Jam"......
....and the meeting was wonderfully spiritual.......
but this is why God gave us Fedex, and there's still time if you can make contact...
Iwas on the Ratdog.org board and have been for 3 years..I sold for face 2 pit tix to the Greek this weekend to Deadhead nana. Today the tix returned in my mail because of a wrong addy on her end..She is out West on tour.I have her 100.00, but she never received my tickets..I still have them in the envelope that was returned with 2 un used friggen tixs. Ugh. Iam sure she is pissed. She never called,zip, nada. Any thoughts.

Good to find this place. Getting sober was tough and one hard aspect was wondering how much of "me" was being lost as so much of my persona had been caught up in using. Sort of like a friend of mine, a professional musician, who was told early in the program that he would have to give up music because it involved playing in bars. He tried that for a short while and realized that it was like having an arm amputated and instead started a musician's AA group. Much better solution. For myself I found that all the best parts of me were still there on the other side only more so, with a lot less fear and shame. I guess I saw the Dead Sober about half the shows I attended, never did connect with the Wharfrat community directly but feel that we were all drifting in the miasma of sobriety and that's good.
Yesterday this day's madness did prepare.
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
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.
thnakyou wharfrats for the option to attend a p.p.t. sobered in early '88 and quickly introduced to the yellow balloon syndrum..again thankyou

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
