Trippin' with Russ and Paco!!!

I went home sick today. Yes, the old Graveh's tummy was hurting him some so he called in his chips, packed it all up, and rode the wagontrain back out to the homestead a little early today.
"8:30 to be exact..."
I came back here and went through some more old pictures and found one of Russell, and one of Paco and I as well.
Good times!!!
The first is of Russell sitting in my parent's house out in the country. He still had hair, so this is at least around 1991. In the regular picture you can see that he is baked out of his gourd and ravenous with hunger. I still miss you buddeh!!! Keith told me he had dream about you recently: That a crowd of people were at a mysterious Jerry-Bear show and no one could see him but one person, who was also the only one standing. Letting us know you're with Jerry now. I can dig on that!

The other is Paco, somewhere in 1995. He's been accused, and even hoped, of being dead. Twice now even!!! Nice mullet, Grav'ster. I have no idea what I was thinking, and offer no excuses. Let the picture stand for what its worth...
Racial harmony!!!

I wonder if he's really dead or just hiding from INS.

Paco, I mean. Geez, I guess I should have clarified that in my original comment. I'm having a senior moment.

Paco is very much alive and well, yet Russell is sadly "sans" us. The pic of him was taken in Mom and Dad's trailer though I don't know why he would be smoking inside. I do know I took him outside and we got baked in the pond area. Russell was a great guy, we were like brothers growing up. Paco, on the other hand, just took up space and left behind a funk like no other in his wake. I made some peace with Russell before he died. Paco I only liked when I was drinking. I no longer drink, and guess what? Paco is nowhere to be found!!!

OMG, I recognize the couch now. That was the awful beast of a couch that gave triangular shaped bruises on the ass cheek if you sat down on the corner of the arm. I was so happy when Mom bought new furniture.

There is not a day goes by that I don't long to see him with a heavy heart. Even now, seeing that pic, and thinking of our teens, I want to cry. I was fortunate enough to stay friends with him closely thru his final days, and to go hang out with him for 2 hours the day before he left. But, god damn, what I wouldn't give to be able to just see him right now! I miss you, my brother.

The last thing Russell ever said to me was "I love you man."
Classy motherfucker.
