    Another Surgery

    Went for the follow-up appointment on my mastectomy today. Lots of fluid buildup around the breast, which was too thick to draw out with a needle. Got to go under the knife again next Monday to drain this fluid off.
    I must admit I'm not too crazy about having to dance with Propofol this often.
    Peace

    ...we drove on Saturday. A great day-trip. Saw our long distance dude compete in the mile, and scored points for the team at Barton Hall. Back home before the sun went down. On the ride up listened to May 8, 1977-11-06 Broome Arena on the ride back, located a mere 5 miles from McIntosh Labs in Binghamton, NY; Sure sounds like there were some new amps on stage that night, especially JG's Travis is screaming. Now I understand how there came to be so many HOT shows in upstate NY, proximity to McIntosh Labs, an easy drive over to the candy store lol; we have some new toys up here, C'mon, let's plug in!

    PEACE ALL!

    ROAD Trip...

    to BARTON HALL on Saturday! My dude is running the mile (1,600 meters). My wife is besides herself, it's an 8-hr R/T day for an estimated 4 1/2 minute event, but she doesn't yet know the play list lol (5.8.77 / 5.2.70 / 11.6.77 / 9.28.76); those should keep me rollin' down the interstate...and away we GO!

    Peace All!

    ...early this AM from my "long distance runner", YES! he's running (which event...details to follow) at Barton Hall next weekend; so my wife and I will be packing lunch with snacks, and selecting tunes [oh that's a tough decision, WRONG!] for our ROAD TRIP!

    Everyone enjoy your weekend.

Attention Dead Heads! Don't miss The Fare Thee Well: Celebrating 50 Years of Grateful Dead at The Ridgefield Playhouse live in HD on July 3rd at 8:00pm. Few bands in the history of music have embodied community and transported free-spirited music to the masses, like Grateful Dead. Furthermore, no fan base bears resemblance to the determined and, above all, dedicated DeadHeads. Check out our website for more information http://ridgefieldplayhouse.org/event/fare-thee-well-celebrating-50-year…

Good morning rockers!!!! As many of you may or may not know, I am a bit of a “1971 Dead fanatic”. I have taken on a slightly ambitious project, documenting all 1971 Dead shows, the end result of which I hope will combine numerous “facts/factoids” about shows with recollections of folks who actually attended Dead shows in 1971. In order to accomplish this, I need the help of the Dead fan community. ALL contributions will be properly and specifically credited. If you attended ANY shows in 1971 and have ANY recollections to share, PLEASE consider participating. Please PM me for details. While of course I’m happy to hear from anybody who attended “classic 71 shows” such as Port Chester, Fillmore East, Harding Theater, Felt Forum, etc., I’m particularly interested in hearing from folks who may have attended lesser known, “out of the way” shows, such as: 1/21/71 Davis 1/22/71 Lane Community College 3/5/71 Oakland 4/14/71 Bucknell 4/18/71 Cortland 6/21/71 Chateau d’Herouville 8/4/71 Terminal Island 10/19/71 Northrop Auditorium 11/11/71 Atlanta 11/17/71 Albuquerque In addition, if ANYBODY out there has “paper ephemera” related to 1971 shows, Please consider participating. I’m looking especially for: Newspaper/print media articles Show posters/handbills Ticket stubs Photographs Thanks in advance to all who participate and contribute! Rock on, Doc Gillespie

I recently moved to Colorado and am seeking other GD fans that live in this lovely state. A dead.net friend from the UK will be visiting in late May, so let's hook up and have a good time!

(posted from PM) My name is Stephen Francis, I work at Guernsey's Auction House based in NYC, and on May 31st, we are hosting an auction of Jerry's guitar, "Wolf," at the Brooklyn Bowl with all proceeds going to support the Southern Poverty Law Center. Here is the breakdown of the event: On May 31, Guernsey's will be conducting an unprecedented one-lot auction of Wolf, Jerry Garcia's beloved guitar. The event is being held at NYC's wonderful Brooklyn Bowl and will include an evening of great music leading up to the auction. Proceeds from the sale of Wolf are directly benefiting the Southern Poverty Law Center, a fantastic non-profit organization dedicated to fighting racism, poverty and hate groups. Fifteen years ago, we sold Wolf at a wild and crazy auction. Recently, the gentleman who acquired the iconic guitar back then approached us wishing to do something meaningful. When he suggested selling Wolf to support SPLC, we couldn't have agreed more. To see Wolf in person while enjoying a great evening of music and supporting an important cause, join us at the Brooklyn Bowl. If you are interested in bidding on Wolf, please contact Guernsey’s at 212-794-2280. For non-bidders interested in attending, a limited number of tickets will be available starting May 8 through the Brooklyn Bowl’s website. Please visit guernseys.com for more information, and give us a call with any questions! Here is the link to our site with all the info: http://guernseys.com/v2/wolf.html Please let me know if you can include this info in your newsletter. Best, Stephen sfrancis@guernseys.com

and some do need to be made aware of a young man;
happy 22nd birthday today to my youngest son, who sang along while I drove the car a couple of weeks ago to fire on the mountain from barton hall while home on semester break , who gets his old man excited with his text pics of his being inside barton hall on each visit while participating in track events, and who tried like hell to get tix for barton hall last May to experience the music together with his dad albeit unsuccessfully; dude you have brought so much more happiness to your parents life's than any event that I have ever related to you. I've been stuck in listening to GD concerts from 1981 for a month now, and unsure why, today subconsciously the answer, I celebrated birthday 22 in 1981. it left a smoking crater...it's a great time in your life, always enjoy it, explore by taking risks, be flexible, stay humorous, learn from mistakes, experiment as you know, remain respectful, love unconditionally, have clarity, and always remain true to yourself as you continue building your life. I love you! your Dad aka uncle_tripel lol

Yeah Uncle Tripel that's whats up. I really enjoyed that post, thanks for that! Some sound advice too. It's a good age for advice, too, because while you still aren't necessarily ready to take it onboard, you're aged far enough to gain that ability to ponder received advice and "hear it" (rather than just remembering it after the fact, and perhaps ruefully nodding in mute agreement)

You say your youngest runs track? I guess it's indoor at this time of the year, hence the Hall. What events does he run if I might inquire? I ran middle distance - so I wasn't quite a "long distance runner" although I did run 6-7 miles a day in training/practice, and I did sometimes ask myself what I was standing there for
