Sunshine Smith... is there ANY chance?

Postby Desdamona » August 24, 2004 11:39 pm

Is there ANY chance that this is Jimmy's business partner
Donna Kay "Sunshine" Smith from Key West?

I know this person's married name is probably Smith, and that
"Sunshine" Smith of Key West probably didn't marry someone
named Smith and move to San Diego, but you never know...

I went to high school with a Sunshine Smith.
My ship she has a rudder, but I don’t know where to steer

I have no idea, she was a few years older than I. Her dad did the sets for the drama dept, so I actually knew him better than I did her.

Doesn't she still work with Jimmy's Margaritaville stores? I read something about a group from Key West going to Florida for a show back when Orlando Margaritaville was opening. I know that was a long time ago, but feel like she is still part of it all.

Sunshine Smith is also mentioned (thanked) here.

Here is a story about Sunshine Smith from Key West...

http://www.keysso.net/community_news/Ju ... ne2004.htm

Scroll down to Art Behind Bars. There is a reference to Jimmy Buffett at the bottom of the article.

It reminded me of Jimmy's performance at the prison that time. What was that old bootleg called? Also, Marshall Chapman did a performance at a Women's correctional instituion and tells about it in her book Old Rock 'n Roller.

Yeah, I know she's still probably part of M'ville, Inc. but
I just wondered what else she was doing. And if there
was a picture of her anywhere.

I saw her for the first time in our training video for M'Ville. What a hoot!! She was too funny. Very out going and funny as all heck. She was a part of the openings of M'Ville, including Myrtle Beach in which a coworker of mine had the opportunity to work with her. Said she nevers shakes your hand, but will hug you instead. Very sweet lady! Don't know of any pics of her, but very pretty lady in her late 50's I would guess. Probably same age as Jimmy! :pirate:

Excellent! Any idea how old the photo is?
And did you find that on-line or scan it?

The photo must be from 1995 when Barometer Soup came out.

Sunshine actually lives about 15 minutes from my house. I think she keeps mostly to herself.

The Sunshine Smith I know might be 30, so not the same one.
