    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.

    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?

Saratoga is on pre-sale now as well. Go to Dead & Co page, click on tickets for Saratoga, click on citi card pre-sale , you need a code, the first 6 digits on a citi card, then you can buy up to 4 tix. I just got two for $99.00 for orchestra. They have higher priced packages that require no code of any kind. Alpine on sale now with citi card or packages

We were planning on road tripping Atlanta to the 3 in FL, New Orleans and Albuquerque based on that bogus tour date list that floated around last month. Had hotels booked along the whole route. I was kinda bummed with the actual tour announcement. It's like they don't want a bunch of aging hippies following them around in dilapidated dusses. Well we have overcome the disappointment and will just road trip it from LA to Boulder! Looking forward to seeing you all there. ☮ my brothers and sisters, gob

Yeah, that list had a lot of us scrambling in many directions for sure. Spent about an hour today canceling hotel and plane reservations for Miami, Tampa, New Orleans and Albuquerque. . . Oh well, we'll all just have to treat this as a virtual group road trip. Those who manage to get to shows just need to be sure to provide visuals and commentary for the rest of us. Maybe Tami'll make a scrapbook for us!?. Hey GeogottheSunshineDaydreamerwebsitelastyearmeister be sure to let me know when our website's 1st year's up so I can renew it this time. . . Onward Sunshine Daydreamers! Oat Jeff

It's that time of the year, I've been itching for a Spring Tour, but it is not to be. Thirty three years ago tonight the boys closed out their run at the Knick, played their last Casey Jones there on 3/27. Thirty six years ago Branford sat in at Nassau, and oh what an Eyes that was. (Apologies to David Byrne). I can't help but relive those moments in my head. Like it was yesterday. The Daydreamers bus has fewer riders these days, especially since the hype of FTW is firmly planted in the rear view and slowly fading out of sight. But the road goes on forever. I'll give credit to Brother Gregg for that gem. It's kinda cool that kind folks at dead.net continue to acknowledge and affirm our journey. We even made that last newsletter. Who'd a thunk it? So what say we put away our dynguses and pussy willows for another year and raise a glass to Jerry and the boys. Here's hoping for many more years of health, magic, fun and friendship. If you get the inkling, feel free to take the wheel and you know the company on ba dus is always cool and the coffee is always hot. Hey Sarge, I got one more silver dollar, so head over to that jukebox. “You know what I want to hear. … You played it for her, you can play it for me!” “…Well, I don’t think I can remember…” “If she can stand it, I can! Play it!” (Sarge plays ‘As Time Goes By.’) Here's looking at you, kid. Ahhhhh, you know, this is a damn fine cup of coffee! :-)

Well said, rrrrgrrrr! The last year really shot by, but what a year it was! Certainly July was the highlight but the run up to the shows was a unique and enlightening experience that displays the power of a common spirit that comes from unlikely events and unexpected sources. Just the other day I was talking to my brother about Cichlids--a convo that may have never happened without the influence of Greg. How many times have I started a sentence with "last summer in Chicago" or exclaimed "you should have seen this rainbow that appeared out of nowhere"? Hopefully, there will be some reconnection this summer on tour with D & Co. I have really enjoyed the opportunity to meet all of you and look forward to turning Too next year!

Hey now, love yous guys. It's been one helluva ride so far. Cant wait to see what the boys have in store for us this summer. You've been as constant as a northern star, the brightest light that shines...It's been you, Daydreamers...right down the line...

I’ve also got the fever with plans for Noblesville, Alpine x2, and Warren’s Jerry tribute in suburban Chicago (plus a couple of Phish shows at Wrigley). It’s unrealistic to expect FTW-level anticipation and I wouldn’t mind some Spring shows to fill the gap but there’s a lot of great music coming our way. The sun is shining and da bus rolls on.

So I take a break and who should appear out of thin air but a friend of the devil and the chick with the sticks. What's this bus coming to anyway? Welcome back 88 and Miami, long time no see. It seems like the tin foil cloak of invisibility and Feel the Bern stickers didn't fool either of you. It's good to see that OatJeff, ASL, Geeky, Boo Boo, Loblaw, TFonts and mkav have found their way home as well. You all know the drill, sit back, relax, pour yourself a cup of coffee and smile, smile, smile. I see the state line is just a mile ahead. Where are we anyway Sarge? The State of Confusion? Makes sense. Remember, if you get confused, listen to the music play. Turn that one up, please. Happy April Fools Day! She's a Black Magic Woman trying to make a devil outta me....

All we need now are patched sails, spit-shined rails, 38 servings of kale, 4 cases of pale ale and a whole pail of water to cool things down. Who needs pits for Alpine? I can’t find the spreadsheet.

Good to see the wordsmiths, poets and ne'er-do-well Daydreamers are on their best behavior, and I mean that in a most positive way, especially you over there tuning the accordion. The plays on words by you rhyming Simons and Simonettes reminds me of that epic show in '78 when all were smiling and carrying on. It is obvious that no-one is any the worse for wear over the winter season, and all seem to be ready to tear it up. Word is that puppers can't contain his excitement, and guess what? The feeling is mutual... and who woulda thunk it.

You know darn well that we requested a special rendition of Mollie B at her finest. For all you who really really miss the accordion, and we know you are out there, it is time to share a secret passion shared by more than a few daydreamers. Yes, we are speaking of the polka, as our esteemed dus briver alluded to in his earlier post, first below written. Now, for your edification and enjoyment,I'd like to introduce a new performer to many, "Mollie B". Mollie Busta, popular performer from the Jim Busta Band and Squeezebox, is host of the weekly RFD-TV Polka show, the "Mollie B Polka Party". The one-hour program featuring the nation's top polka bands... produced on location at music festivals from around the country. Lest you think you've missed the doat, or dus as it may be, there is a four day show right here in the heart of Texas, in the hamlet of Ennis (right down the road from my abode) at the end of the month. Guaranteed to entertain even the most jaded, tickets are available for the four-day run..at a bargain price of 20 bucks per person, per day, reduced for the rugrats to 5 bucks a head. Camping is available at a nearby Walmart lot. Get your tickets early, before they sell out, at http://store.rfdtv.com/product-p/10001.htm. All the Daydreamers worth their salt should head this way, and get ready for a party. When it comes to talent, you can't beat good ol RFD...and Polka. Thanks to one and all for your anticipated participation....we'll leave the light on for ya....no fooling!

This time last year we were all freakin' out on quests for tickets. There was only one venue (Santa Clara wouldn't be announced until April 10). We were scrambling and trying to help each other. Things more or less worked out, although I wish I'd made an effort to go to the Levis Stadium shows. Now, for the most part, we've calmly decided whether we're going to any of the Dead & CO shows this summer (I don't think any/most have sold out yet, so there's still time). Our perseverance has allowed us to tame this roller-coaster of a bus and enjoy the ride and smell the roses along the way this go-round . . . But I still have work to do – I still get real names, avatars and nicknames all mixed up (except for GeoFillInTheBlankMeister, of course.)
