we were fortunate enough to be invited by my best friend Lorraine and her family to see Jimmy Buffet at the Nikon Theater at Jones Beach on Friday night. This is an annual event for us, stemming back more than 20 years, and the highlight of every summer. If you have never been to a Buffet concert you really do not understand the lengths these people go to. My parent, who have been "Parrot Heads" for years, went down to the beach early in the day, only to inform us that the theather parking lot was already filled, and the second lot was quickly fillling up as well. Luckily we had VIP parking and tickets. Which really didn't help us much when the thunder and lightening rolled in nd we had to retreat back to our cars as Jimmy told us that the show would deffinitly go on, just a littkle later than usual. The rain soon slowed and as Jimmy played Off to See the Lizard we filed back into the theater and did just that, danced out in the rain, as we sang along, word for word, like we done every year. These concerts are at the heart of memories, things that make me smile, with people i love more than life!
