Today I learned a dude I know from the Dead bar scene in town got sentenced to 80 yrs. This dude, Rasta Keith, drove a bus shuttling patrons to and from various Dead bars owned by the same family in town and would take you to Red Rocks or home or anywhere else for cheap (whatever you wanted to pay). Justice served, though:

My wife and I took the dogs to the mnts for a hike on Saturday to Mt Falcon (near Red Rocks). It was hot out. There were, according to other hikers and park rangers, a bunch of rattle snakes out due to the warm weather. The rangers even told us that a hiker had been bit about a half hour earlier at a nearby mountain in Golden. 

 

Turns out the guy died from the bite after being transported to the hospital. Dude was an Iron Man competitor, too. I'm wondering how long I'd last after a rattler bite...:

^^^ I went through hospice care for both parents and it's a sad time -- though the end frequently brings about a sense of relief.  Good luck and warm thoughts to you.  My mother passed 16 years ago today at the age of 64 -- far too young.

Today (well, actually...recently) I've been listening to a recording of a Meat Puppets show that I saw at Shuba's nine years ago. I've been asking my buddy who recorded it for a copy ever since. I finally got a copy a few weeks ago and man oh man was it worth the wait. The high point of the show is a cover of a tune from South Pacific called Bali Hai. Of all the times I've seen the MPs, this one is a clear front runner for most psychedelic. Curt is on fire! Anyways, thanks for the recording JR, its a beauty.

I lost my dad. For the last three and a half years (during which time he had three battles with two different cancers) he was front and center in my mind. I feel lost. 

 

Jon, I am so very sorry. I lost my own dad 5 years ago in December, and while I have finally come to a place of peace, I remember so well how wrong the whole world felt, how empty, without his presence. Losing a parent is unlike any other loss...your anchor in life!

For whatever it's worth, I can tell you you'll never lose him completely. I don't know about an afterlife, or reincarnation, or whatever might come next. But I know you can't lose him completely because he is so much a part of you. He'll live on in you. xo

^^^ Impressed that you made it to 57 without a prior surgery.  Even more impressed that you are posting the same day as your surgery!!  Good luck -- the three people I know who have had hip replacements all say that the procedure exponentially improved the quality of their lives.
