In 1995, my only sister, and best friend, passed away. She was only 38.

She had moved to Fernandina a few months after I did....we had always lived close to one another....She fell in love with the island as much as I did...and said it, not Charleston , would always remain "home" to her....and she loved this song.

When she died...we had a celebration of her life.....and all she loved.

This is the song that was played.....and also another friend of ours played it for us later, at the beach...when we took her ashes down there..

We flew in a bi plane...3 of us. The pilot, her widower, and me....

Another small plane flew ahead of us with a banner saying "We Love You, Fran"...

He did two flyovers first.....

and it was our turn and we were throwing her ashes out of the plane over her favorite spot on the beach.....

There was a group of our friends on the shore, and a minister doing a reading...

It had been raining earlier in the day....

As we put her out to Sea....the other pilot said they were in vortex, under the wing of the biplane, and just circled for a while before falling to sea...

A double rainbow came out....and I looked down at the water...and there were over 20 dolphins jumping in the spot right below us.....My daughter was 9 at the time, and she was right at the waters edge....She saw this and ran to the other people and said.....

"Y'all! Come Quick! The dolphins have come to greet Aunt Fran!"

It was amazing and so right.....

The Rainbows...and the Ocean...The dolphins....and Fran.

I miss you Frannie....

all the time.



and THAT is why that is my favorite song on the album...

((((((Connie)))))
Now, it's my favorite, too......

He Went To Paris

No underlying reason, just like the ballad.

I had to chose from 4 or 5, but He Went to Paris is a great ballad and paints a picture from ambition to being content

..Unpopular Poet. Might be the most sad but happy song at the same time, if that makes any sense

Death of an unpopular poet

A friend of mine gave me a copy of Jimmy Acoustic in East Hampton, this song was on there. It is my favorite song. It's just a nice tune, especially when it's Jimmy and the guitar

Doggone — there's at least TWO good ones on here, and the rest aren't bad either. It was hard for me to decide between "Great Filling Station Holdup" and "Peanut Butter Conspiracy"; finally ended up flipping a coin.

By the way, did Jimmy and his buddies ever pay the Mini-mart back?? At the prices he's getting these days, you know dambed well he could afford to by now!!

Livin' in KW in the early 70's, bought this album on vinyl at Sears. Gotta go with "I have found me a home" because I did.

Grapefruit Juicy Fruit

If for no other reason than it's catchy and has plenty of stupid puns and rhymes in it.

What a great album! Filled with classic tracks but I had to vote for "Death Of An Unpopular Poet".

Not the type of song many people would associate with Jimmy Buffett, but great music and a brilliant lyric.
