One more before I die...laughing...

All-Season Skeletons

76 TOMbones...

--Cast included a very young Ronny (Ron) Howard

"There's a Grateful Dead song for every occasion..."

I recently added this new section in applicable posts. It originated with my surfer friend - Steve - who introduced me to "playing with cars" - as he termed working on our VW's - his Beetle and my Bus.

Using my artistic license, I'm including memes and other Grateful Dead paraphernalia...

I've used this in other posts and it's really appropriate here.

The dynamic duo: Hunter & Garcia

The Wheel

Lyrics By: Robert Hunter

Music By: Bill Kreutzmann

The wheel is turning and you can't slow down You can't let go and you can't hold on You can't go back and you can't stand still If the thunder don't get you then the lightning will Won't you try just a little bit harder Couldn't you try just a little bit more Won't you try just a little bit harder Couldn't you try just a little bit more Round, round, Robin run around Gotta get back where you belong Little bit harder, just a little bit more Little bit further than you gone before Small wheel turning by the fire and rod Big wheel turning by the grace of God Every time that wheel turn round Bound to cover just a little more ground

Touch of Grey: "WE will get by..."

[from this article] The song has turned into an anthem in this last tour. Everybody loves it,” Garcia explained. Garcia also opinioned that his original interpretation of the song is moot now that the audience has run with the song. “It doesn’t matter what it originally means anymore. I like to not tie things down if possible. That thing of floating…but it’s a great song to sing. It’s a great song to perform. It really works well. So from a musician’s point of view, does the song have a life of its own? It has a life of its own.”
