For once, a happy experience ! LOL

Post by Parottmm » August 24, 2011 2:33 am

Hi everybody ! Long time since I've been here, but I check in every now & then !
I wanted to share a story with ya. Just goes to show what good people Parrot Heads are !!!

About 5 years ago, I decided to Fly from FL to Indy for the Buffett Concert, that happened to be on my Birthday. Only problem was, my friend up there couldn't find us tix. So, I log in here..... and low & behold, a woman had just posted pavilion seats for sale.... about 6 minutes before I came looking. Wow, Great Luck for me !
I contact her & she's a newbie to this site, had 2 people back out of their tix & they were good seats, at Face Value ! Now I'm thinking we're REALLY Lucky ! I get to Indy & we arranged to pick up the tix..... well, she lives 5 min from the venue & always has a pre concert party at home, then caravans over to Tail Gate. She invited Lana & I to join her, we did, and had a ball ! She even had a Birthday Cake for me !
Now, neither of us had ever met, we just clicked over the phone. Ever since then we manage to see each other once a year or so and last month she & her hubby even came to visit me ! Of course I took them to dinner at Margaritaville and they got to meet & hear John Frinzi for the first time.
Tomorrow I am flying out to Indy to join them for the 4th concert together, celebrating my Birthday a tad late,,,,, well, not really cuz these days I celebrate all month ! LOL

Thanks to this site & topic, I have made more great friends for life !
I tried to use a few connections that I've made throughout the years and now..... We have "Special Pavilion Seats waiting for us , at the 'Will Call' Window as well as VIP backstage passes ! I think she'll be pleasantly surprised when we get there to pick them up tomorrow(Thursday) !

Will anyone be around for us to visit with Thursday afternoon for Tail Gate ? I know I don't come here often, but I do know several members of BN and would love to see ya'll again ! By the time I made it over to the Tampa Tailgate Party, everyone was pretty toasty, LOL, John Frinzi was playing and I was able to visit with a few folks, don't know if they remember or not ! LOL I didn't stay for all of John's gig, cuz I get to see him a couple times a week at work ! LOL ( This is where Irish Pirate sticks her tongue out at me ! LOL Smooches, Deb ! )

Anyway, thanks, Buffett News, for introducing me to more Great Friends !
Smooches & hugs to all of you that I know personally & hugs to those I'm meeting now !

Finz UP !
