Dear Tribal Members,
The Phoenix is an immortal bird associated with Greek mythology that cyclically regenerates or is otherwise born again. Associated with the sun, a phoenix obtains new life by arising from the ashes of its predecessor.
As we know Macho Acres burned to the ground. Words don’t capture the feeling of loss of such a mythical place where a gathering tribe of societal outcasts and shameless reprobates assembled over the years, making memories. Many schemes and projects were birthed at the “Acres”
Sib and Deborah’s beautiful home is gone, but it will be rebuilt in only the style they both exude. What won’t return are all of the collections, totemic objects discovered around the planet with stories to go with them.. They are unfortunately lost to the universe.
What The Tribe needs to do. Peruse your personal museums (rugs, weaving, old ice axe’s, juju and Tchotchkes) then generously put all those beautiful items in a large box and send to:
Mike Weis / Pamela Peters
1005 Pratt St.
Longmont, Co 80501
Weis promised he wouldn’t sell any of the acquired booty on eBay or his monthly garage sales. The Sibley Museum replacement items will be placed in a secure container and guarded by a recently acquired pack of under-fed, wild Rottweilers. The Tribe will then pass on the collections at an appropriate time, such as an upcoming Acres Rendezvous.
Thank you for your generosity and please keep this very quiet so it’s a surprise when we turn over the treasure chest to the pirate.
with kindness and respect

Now Michael and I are going to have to build a MUCH larger abode just to accommodate all the treasures we expect to plunder. Also givers to the Phoenix Project should include any details, provenance, superstitions etc with their ill-gotten gains. That way Paul will feel right at home (no pun intended) with his “new” treasures!
