Hey someone else must listen to Jimmy Buffet

I can't believe that I am the only one that admits they listen to Jimmy Buffet. I am from a colder climate, Canada's east coast and I appreciate visiting the south, especially when we have 4 feet of snow everywhere. My first visit to Florida was because of a Jimmy Buffet concert I attended on my 25th birthday. A friend, Loretta, and I loved the concert. The stage was covered in tropical plants and palm tress giving us the feeling we were not in Kansas anymore, as they say. So the next day March 10, still lots of snow and slush, Loretta and I bought tickets and left for Florida and sun. It was my first trip south and was the strangest thing I had ever experienced. To go from the freezing cold and snow and slowly watch as winter changed to spring and then summer. Pretty cool trip. Jimmy Buffet has been in my heart and very soul since that concert and that trip. Now that I play guitar, since I turned 47, so no excuses for not learning something new, I play lots of Jimmy's songs and teach them to my guitar friends and those that come to our jams just for the fun.

When I started playing guitar 6 years ago, at age 47, none of my friends had heard anything other than Margaritaville. So over these past few years I have introducted them to more of Jimmy's songs and they love, most of them. I also introduced them to John Prine, another artist I appreciate and listen to.

I love Jimmy Buffet! I have listened to him for years and never get tired of his songs. I live in Iowa where it is cold and snowy during the winter (usually anyway) and listening to Jimmy Buffet is like taking a little trip to a warmer climate. Just thinking about it makes me want a drink with a little umbrella sticking out of the top. I always thought it would be fun to hang out with him for a week. He seems like he has no worries!

Well I am glad I am not alone. Jimmy Buffet has made me happy for so many years. My wife, son and myself went to Florida for a vacation and were at Disney of course. While we were in Florida I had to go to Margaritaville to buy some collectibles. I bought a few shot glasses to give to my friends because I have introduced them to Jimmy Buffet and they love him too, not as much as me, but they do. I bought a license plate for the front of my car that says "Margaretaville" and love it. I will add a picture of the plate to my phoos for you to see. I don't know how may times over the years I have purchase the same tapes and albums because I just wore out what I had.
