Comment of the Moment: Thanks for Your 15 Years of Support!

Button Design and Production by Rusties Dee & Tim A.
(details on how to receive a Thrasher's Wheat 15th Anniversary button here)

We would just like to say love & thanks to all who have contributed and written over the past few days.

Your love & support is truly appreciated. We'll be getting out notes and buttons in the coming days so hopefully everyone will have a stocking stuffer. ;)

Here's just one of the notes we received on Thanks for Your 15 Years of Support to Thrasher's Wheat! from Doug S. in Warsaw, N.Y. :

The contribution I just made is small compared to my gratitude.

I first discovered your site when frantically searching for any details on Neil's hospitalization during the Prairie Wind era. I have visited your site most every day since. One of My favorite spiritual sayings is "It takes a little rain and a little sun to make a Rainbow". Never was that more obviously true than when I got Neil's autograph 13 days after My wife's passing. That would have never happened if not for Thrashers Wheat. If not for Thrashers Wheat I wouldn't have gotten to walk down A Kingston Ontario street with Ben Keith and Larry Cragg, or chatted with Rick Rosas outside a grocery store.

And if you believe in coincidence, having a seat next to you at the Tower Theater in Philly. I prefer to believe it is GOD moving anonymously. You gave Me a Thrashers Wheat button, and when I thought I had lost, you gave Me another one. Yes to say that I am grateful to you and Thrashers Wheat is an understatement.

Happy Thanksgiving to one and all.

Doug S. Warsaw N.Y.

Thanks Doug! Yes, it was great meeting you @ The Tower in Philly too. What a Neil concert. Solo acoustic with Neil practically playing in our living room?!


It really is all about just sharing the Neil love, man.

Blessings. And thanks again for your 15 years of supporting us and what we do.

At this wonderful time of gift giving, it is my pleasure to begin by contributing to Thrasher's Wheat.

As I've said before, this is such a wonderful community of lovers of music and Neil.... It is truly priceless!!!!

Also, I must confess that I can't wait to receive my button.

Have a wonderful Holiday season!

With much affection to you and Thrashette,

Marian M.
