    What's in a name, Marye?
    A rose by any other name would smell as sweet. Please name the new thread, "Sunshine Daydreamers Keep on Truckin'" If you can include the last 3999 posts, that'd be swellll...just kidding, of course. But if you could include the last 17 (make that 20, see the above 3 hangers-on and ne'er do-wells) or so of the posts from #1, first above written going back to and including July 4th the Happy Anniversary one, that should give one and all some context, as that was the day 2 years ago, when we first met each other for real, where we broke bread and watermelons at the finest pizza pic-a-nic this side of the Rockies, and whence we collectively enjoyed a grand and magnificent band celebrating all good things. Thank Yew veddy much, Oh Kind One.

    @Got Sand
    We're very intrigued by the Playing in the Sand gig come February and will most likely pony-up. Spoke to a dude at CID today in Philly who's been at all the gigs there (D&C, DMB, etc...) and he said is simply knockout gorgeous and as intimate a live beach concert setting as you can imagine. Multiply that by three shows and "all-inclusive" amenities and the the money grab rolls-on... Anyone else contemplating?

This party is going to work out real smooth. Just exactly perfect. If not, it will be an epic catastrophe. We only hope if there are resulting prison sentences that they aren't to harsh.

My thinking is: secure as many tickets as possible in the hands of True Heads through the lottery, then get busy in a massive swap meet with Californians holding Chi-town tickets who would rather trade and stay close to home. Let's secure those new tickets, folks.

I'd have to roll the Iron Horse out and pack the saddlebags for that one. Polish up the custom made Jerry Garcia air cleaner cover and SYF derby cover and head to the Badland's a third time.

What the hell? I take a few hours out of my FTW obsession to see my Orioles get smacked in the kiester by a flock of Canadian ballplayers... and the whole galactic paradigm shifts! web service was down on my phone, now i'm hours behind on the next wave of anxiety. Can I/Should I go? I'll definitely put in for tix, Graceful is spot on with that, they can always be shared by those not looking to exploit. Can someone help me clear these flight/hotel searches from my browser history before the wife gets home?. I miss Jerry.

Dear Abby, Less than six hours ago everything was stable. All navigation systems were programmed and functioning perfectly. Compass pointed to Terrapin. Now east and west are all screwed up. Target destination is permanently fixed on Chicago. And that's just the way I want it. And now I'm trying to plot a course that gets us to Chicago via Santa Clara. Please help me Abby cause all I have now is an obnoxious horse giving me advice.

Dear Abby and her sister Ann Landers are trying to score extra ducats to Levi's....they bought CID VIP....with a handful of our SD crew....who needs them.... Once, we were one in body and one in purpose....so what, we whack ten or so names off the shirt....Tami make it happen....grrrrrrrlllll. Scrap the design, screw the fountain and let's all go solo....Jeff and Tami worked hard, but hey the Dead are going home and giving back to the left coast...as they should....we don't matter. We don't know each other, we are a motley crew of obsessed strangers, friends without faces who are jeopardizing our retirement, marriages, careers and lives, all for one final weekend celebrating a band that ended in 1995.....and the leader of the band is dead for God sakes..... This is going down the shitter quick Dudley.....was it Santa Clara or Mr. Ed...or David Gans....I don't know..... And if it does.... It doesn't make up for the fact that I still am a Deadhead and I miss Jerry..... My name is staying on the shirt and I will be in Chicago.... Who's with me.....

Life is all about compromise. This old adage worked beautifully. My gal has been a life-long Cubbie fan. I don't follow baseball until the playoffs begin. She likes the Grateful Dead but is far from being a fanatic (like me). The last big thing on her bucket list is seeing the Cubs at Wrigley Field, she has wanted to do this for over fifty years. I score the Cubs tickets and before she's recovered I hit her with the news that the Dead are going to be there that same weekend. What a surprise. Oh no, it's going to be the last time I can ever see them. I now have a green light to search for tickets almost no matter what the cost. She still thinks the main reason for going to Chicago is to see the Cubs. Small price to pay, I think.

Today was such a good day I could hardly contain it. Good thing there is a river mote of posts and notes here to calm me down... can't get through them all I'm skimming most. 6 day work weeks got me taaahred... gotta get that dough though! No scalping for me, no sireeee. Either I or a family member in the show on my tickets. Can't wait to see if we all get tickets to SC... My t-shirt line will be incorrect then but small price, eh? Can't wait to see you guys in the park. Looks like we will literally have our flag flying high thanks to Totem? Trying to map out if one of us can stash some brightly colored umbrellas at the ho-tel. Good for spotting each other and a spot in the shade. Peace and nightzzz

Morning campers....Oooooh my, what a day ithat was. Left coasters in a frenzy, east coasters hopes dashed....a new round of anticipation, and possible heartbreak. I can't do CID two weeks in a row but can do a lottery and leave on a jet plane.... or miracle a Few.... I propose a separate forum to discuss Levi Stadium plans..... As we get closer to the shows, these subforums will have more specifics re. our respective Crusades.... It will preserve the spirit of SD and allow the character of Levi to develop a life of its own.... Wishing everyone a blessed Saturday... so which way do we go, George? We're happy as fish and gorgeous as geese and wonderfully clean in the morning.....

Good Morning All! A glorious sunrise, and a wonderful Saturday to you. First things first....We Are Sunshine Daydreamers, whether we are the left coasters or the Chi-dreamers, we are one and won are we. We stay true to our roots, this forum, and post away in all abandon. 'cept you rgrrrgrrgr, you gotta drive. And a fine job you are doing. Steady on, Daddio, keep on course, stopover in Santa Scara for a field trip to see the Californai hippies, then onward to Chicago. Our T-shirt might be just fine. Our vision certainly is. A mini-tour for the Dead, a choice for us all, and music to rock our souls. Let's see how things shake down Rjjjrrrrjjjr and all. We'll talk it up on the email thread and then go public. If the cats and kittens wanna play elsewhere, because there is another weekend to party, then so-be-it. We can do both here just fine. Maybe the left side of the bus can be the SC-bound folks, and the right-righteous side be the Chi-town Irregulars. ciao, tally ho, pass the sugar, thanks. Geoallisokmeister

strawberry cream cheese pie sounds delicious, although probably too far back in the thread to be relevant. i doubt it cares. so happy for you left-coasters!! A "nya nya" to those that sneered at the notion that the band actually does give a crap about its family. joining Stella in the six-day grind (although i'm salaried so who's it all for anyway?) gotta focus, so a passing wave, and back to the path right foggy.

I got the official word from Elvis 2 a.m....I'm in for FTW!!! Apparently, I'm one of the knuckleheads who did not list his email on the 3x5. So ... for the extra anguish wondering if I'm in or out... I blem myself. My email number was #33!!!! So I could have known 2 months ago. what an idiot. Anyway, I'll see you all in Chicago...I can say confidently now. I f. I feel really lucky. Other stuff. I can't make SC. But we did make 2 hotel reservations just in case, which my wife just cancelled. Grab em if you need em and if they're still there... Hilton and Marriott, Santa Clara
