I forgot..

I got the 'keet a HUGE water gun....

I have a 6' palm tree

I have a 6' sea scene

I'll have a tattoo on each arm...one flamingo and one parrot

PPS (practically perfect spouse) doesn't make me go on his baseball marathons (something like 23 games in 32 days and 3400 miles traveled) and I don't make him come to concerts or phlockings in the parking lot!

Will even make a poster that says:

EAST TEXAS PARROTHEAD and her 'KEET

So we'll be able to find each other....

Am thrilled to have tickets, the new CD and have the 'keet coming in from New Mexico.

Hey- I'll be looking for some of the Buffett News posters. I've really got to meet some of you guys...especially the ones from Oklahoma, even if you are OSU fans.
I've had a blast reading all of the posts here the past few weeks!!
I may include something about BuffettNews on my car (with shoe polish)
Hope it doesn't rain!!!

One more day and few hours now - Woo Hoo!

Neon Green sign to put up outside the RV, and hot pink one on a stick to tote around. Both say: "Hey Buffet News Buddies!" Can't wait to see you all!

I'll make a BUFFETT NEWS FRIENDS poster this evening as I'm decorating the red van!

Can't wait to see ya'll...it's lonely here in the piney woods. No parrothead club, no parrothead friends...only people who look at me funny when I talk about how much fun we're going to have.

Phins up!

Happy Buffett Eve to all of you!!! Am I correct that most of us were planning to be in the east parking lot? If you can find me or if I can find you, let's plan on meeting at my RV for a group photo around 5pm???

CRC...am so glad you thought of that....I would love a group photo to prove to my co workers that a Buffett event is the most fun you'll ever have with 3,000 other people!

I woke up at 4:00 this morning...am doubtful about sleep tonight.

Will bring my camera, too....

C ya'll there....

I'm in the northeast corner of the state...between I30 and I20....in the middle of nowhere...with a land line, no DSL...and an old computer that doesn't have Windows '98, so I can't listen to RM...but, I have a friend who's going to convert to '98 for me and then I can listen in.

So, right now, I'm pretty much isolated, but not tomorrow!

I'm decorating tonight...having a ball...can't wait to pick up the 'keet at the airport...and then to see all ya'll...

And, I just read that he ended Houston with TONIGHT I JUST NEED MY GUITAR....my 1957 D18 Martin and I are happy about that! Gave me goosebumps...

Well, ya'll...I HAVE to get back to work...won't be on line tonight, as I'll be decorating and getting ready...and besides, I have a dadgum land line that is sooo slow.

So, CRC and everyone else...

SEE YOU IN THE PARKING LOT!

Bummer I just found out I cant go down to Dallas, but I will come hell or high water make Vegas! I have a huge favor for some of my Okie Phreinds going down to big D.
Could someone from OKC or Stillwater grab me a shirt to add to my collection. I can meet you in OKC this weekend or when ever to pay for it. Heck I'll even buy you lunch. Just someone please let me know. Im so bummed but Vegas is only 31 days away!!

So sorry Okie, If I was driving back up 35, I would buy you the shirt myself and deliver it to you. I can't imagine what it's like not being able to make it. I feel for you man, but I will be going 35 SOUTH on my way home. Keep those fingers crossed.

East Texas- 2 hours of work to go??? What's with that? I went home during lunch and had a brewski to start the concert already. (imagine me, in the car, by myself, in the garage, radio blastin' tuesday,thurs, & sat, drinking a beer)....just thinking about tomorrow. BEST LUNCH EVER.
