PS: Sorry I blew out of there quickly, but I was feeling ok and wanted to get back to the hotel before that changed. Was still feeling the effects of my body's revenge on me for what I ate on Thursday. It seemed the safest course of action. ;)

Still had a great time, though!!!

Am I the only person awake at the Comfort Inn? Who's going to the Cape today?
I knew this girl made of memories and phrases, who lived her whole life in both chapters and stages.
Danced 'til the dawn, wished all her worries away.

She's a long way from a West Nashville grand ballroom gown.

Due to the new "check your ticket at the door" policy of GW, the bride was delayed. We waited for 45 minutes but I needed water and food.
I waited 20 min and same thing. I hot pretty weak out there in the sun. Needed food and drink and shade. Would have liked to have gone, but...yeah. Heard it got pushed back to five. That flew past me without me realizing it. Oh, well.
WOW! Now I am really glad I didn't wait around. Felt bad because a relative of the groom is a good friend of mine.
I heard that later in the lot. Don't know if it's true. ?
Nice for Mommar (she) to finally meet Tig :roll: :wink: :lol:
Sorry I missed Jed :(

"Jimmy Buffett leaves nothing to chance, he knows how to play the crowd and is so tuned in to his audience, especially here in New England.

So it was to no one's surprise that Buffett shuffled onto stage Saturday night, wearing a "spoked-B" Boston Bruins' T-shirt with the "uffett" coincidentally stitched next to the B."

Cool.
huh!!!!...wonder he got that.....nice meeting you Jackie!!!!.....still want a shirt though
Nice meeting you too :) Great Day.

Had a great time and all was cleaned up before 9. Have to bail out of going to Beachcomer as we need some R & R from the sun and heat of yesterday and we can go there any weekend this summer. Hope all had a great time and ate good food, great to meet new friends and great to see all others again this year.
Dave will be planning for next years tailgate soon........Have a great summer !!!!!

Anyway...

Had a great time!

Thanks to everyone, esp Dave, Leslie, Barb, Swissie (did I learn your real name?), schoolgirlheart (who is always schoolgirlheart to me), Lefty, and my cooler-lifting pal, whose name eludes me at the moment. Oh, and everyone who hugged me about Lloyd, too

I decided to wait to scatter his ashes at the beach. Didn't want him to end up on someone's windshield. ;)

I hope to see you all next year. I'll keep you posted on my wandering! Frisco is in for sure, and I'll try to come back up for GW!
jedivet...real name Lori, husband's is Jeff. It was great meeting you as well. I'm sorry about Lloyd, that's the tough thing about pets. :( Been there...

Hope to see you again!

Great finally putting faces to names yesterday! Wish I could have met up with everyone.

Mike - thanks for the drink - not sure what that liquor was but it was great!

If anyone has a photo of Jimmy from last night's concert, I would love to have a copy. he was wearing my shirt and I was too far away to get a picture of it.
Thanks!

Nice to see you again with the "short-haired look."
:D
I had been told, more than once and by more than one person, that I had to get my hair cut. I take direction well. :lol:

It's a little grainy (was far away myself).

Mine's no better, I took it from the big screen because I was too far back to get a good shot of the stage.

I had a great time yesterday and am just now feeling human again. It was soooo humid that I think I must have lost 5 pounds in sweat. But between the very late night at the Sandbar and then another late night yesterday this old broad very happy but very tired.

I was up close but my still pictures all pretty blurry for some reason. But I did post one of Jimmy with the ball cap on and a video on the the Set List thread.

As usual I got lost and did not find any of the BN people so just gave it up and went in to the show. But it was definitely the best of the 4 I have been to. And the energy level was terrific.

I also posted a picture of Peter Mayer and his son at the Sandbar and a video of Nadirah on the Sandbar thread.

It was pretty awesome. How did you get it to him?
