in the strangest of places, if you look at it right.”

“There is a road, no simple highway,
between the dawn and the dark of night,
and if you go, no one may follow, that path is for your steps alone”

John and Jerry – Gone Too Soon

“I mean, whatever kills you kills you,
and your death is authentic no matter how you die.”

Jerry died from a heart attack on August 9, 1995 at the age of 53.

“When you go down to deep elem to have a little fun
Have your ten dollars ready when the police man comes”

Inside the brown briefcase were miscellaneous papers, as described in Garcia’s arrest report. It was booked as evidence at the Richmond Police Station on Jan. 18, 1985 after police busted Garcia for drug possession in Golden Gate Park.

Shady Grove, I know

The Grateful Dead Movie 1977 directed by Jerry Garcia


Dark star crashes, pouring its light into ashes

Reason tatters, the forces tear loose from the axis
Searchlight casting for faults in the clouds of delusion
Shall we go, you and I while we can
Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?
Mirror shatters in formless reflections of matter
Glass hand dissolving in ice, petal flowers revolving
Lady in velvet recedes in the nights of good-bye
Shall we go, you and I while we can
Through the transitive nightfall of diamonds?

There were days
And there were days
And there were days between
Polished like a golden bowl
The finest ever seen
Hearts of Summer held in trust
Still tender, young and green
Left on shelves collecting dust
Not knowing what they mean
Valentines of flesh and blood
As soft as velveteen
Hoping love would not forsake
The days that lie between lie between

“Sometimes the lights all shining on me, other times I can barely see.
Lately it occurs to me what a long strange trip it’s been.”

If my words did glow with the gold of sunshine
And my tunes were played on the harp unstrung
Would you hear my voice come through the music
Would you hold it near as it were your own?

In 2003, Rolling Stone ranked Jerry Garcia 13th
on their list of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time”

“Don’t cry now, don’t you cry, don’t you cry anymore.
Sleep in the stars, don’t you cry, dry your eyes on the wind.”

Death will leave you standing and crying in this land”

Jerry was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame with the Grateful Dead in 1994. He didn’t attend the ceremony, so the band brought a cardboard cutout of Garcia on stage for the award. In 2015, Robert Hunter and Garcia were inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame.

“Don’t cry now, don’t you cry, don’t you cry anymore.
Sleep in the stars, don’t you cry, dry your eyes on the wind.”

Be Grateful. Be Kind.

NOTE: Yes, we are STILL working on the Las Vegas and Ashland Road Trip Blog Posts.
Just taking a long time and we’ll be sharing them soon. July totally got away from us! And so did August…. and now it’s September 2019 and we haven’t updated our Blog in two months. Sincere apologies for our recent distraction! WE ARE BACK! Really. No, really.

Burning Man – Camp Envy 2014!

Vamos a la Playa? NOPE!
burned
We were looking for ONE TICKET and ONE VEHICLE PASS for BURNING MAN 2019 this year, and the Main Sale and the OMG sale sucked. And so we are not going. It was not meant to be. Too much work to get ready and not enough time.
We will be watching watched with CAMP ENVY again this year. (more later)

Burning Man – Camp Envy 2019

It was THE DOG DAYS OF SUMMER here in Los Angeles. HOT! HOT! HOT!
And it continues to be hot into September.
Today it was only 90 degrees in the San Fernando Valley.
At least we don’t have Hurricane Dorian to contend with!
The stories coming out of the Bahamas are terrible.

Birthday dinner #2 – Bone-in NY Steak, red potatoes, steamed broccoli, caesar salad, bread & butter, cran-raspberry-orange juice and Boston cream cake for dessert.

Birthday dinner #3 – BBQ chicken sandwich and corn on the cob with cran-raspberry juice. And then a birthday cheesecake for me! Four cakes in three days, so fat.

And more cake. Chocolate cake. There was cake and then half of it was frozen, and then there was cake again. And it was really good.

FlashbackFriday! 2 years since my iPhone was tragically destroyed! It was crushed between the door and the dashboard by Vanessa, my rental van.

NOTE: We bought a replacement phone for $50 and transferred the chip, and we have a replacement iPhone, but we haven’t gone back from our cheap android model yet.

Are you ready for some advertising? NFL Football is On the Air!

Why does the picture in the multi-screen layout keep getting smaller?

And so it begins! Starting this weekend and for the next 16 weekends (and Monday and Thursday nights) plus playoffs, championships and the Super Bowl, I will be watching NFL Football, drinking coffee and ignoring everything else. See you in February!

And on an interesting note, we can see the stats for this Blog, and we enjoy seeing where our readers are located (when they’re not pirating our pictures). So here’s the details for the last four days, WE ARE WORLDWIDE!>

Okay, we’re posting this at last. Watch for our future past due Blog Posts: Burning Man, Las Vegas, Ashland Road Trip, and more…. Thanks for playing!
