    Spent the day in Utah with the band up in the hills, where at least one person was observed entering the show under the canopy of a parachute, with purple smoke trailing behind him; some folks had set up a tarp in the middle of the crowd, upon which target the parachutist then made his graceful landing. As he passed over my head, I could see that he was dancing and had a ticket in his hand. Just a day like any other day, back when we had a Grateful Dead.

so thanks for hanging in there, and for putting up with Chronology Gremlin. but you're up to date now, as of 12 November. When I go home for Thanksgiving, I'll collect my old Grateful Dead Daybook that has interesting little bits of info, and I'll edit through and try to add them in as well as the show highlights.
