modern day Bard's music has taken many of us away from our normal humdrum lives
to escape to a swing in a hammock under a lone palm in that mystical place known
Jimmy Buffett never was a big success as far as the mainstream music industry
goes. When you mention Jimmy Buffett those that aren't fan's (or as we Parrot
Heads spell it "Phan's") they recall "Margaritaville",
"Come "Monday" or "Cheese Burger in Paradise". Jimmy
Buffett is more like a renegade pirate that has made his own mark on the world,
and he is more popular now than he ever was when his fist songs were being
played on the airway's.
His Phan's now come in all age ranges, young to old and when Jimmy goes on
the road to tour they Phlock to him. These great Pholks known as Parrot head's
come wearing outrageous costume's, they stand-up sing along and dance and know
the words to just about all the songs. Why? Well, because everybody needs to
forget that boring day to day 40-80 hour work week, or mid-term and finals, the
bills and the craziness that invades all our lives daily and get a little crazy
ourselves. They don't hurt anyone, there are never any riot's, there may be an
occasional few that over indulge in the rita's but usually, those people come to
learn that the concerts are more fun and enjoyable if you can remember what went
on after it's over with.

than just fan's of Jimmy Buffett, but a group that Cares for
A few years back I started my first adventure on the web
creating the infamous "Beer
Beard's a Pirates Den" (Now under going a much needed major
face lift) I went through some hard times. To make a long story
short, just as my site was starting to gain some popularity I
lost my job and became unemployed. I was struggling not
having any luck finding another job, and with more bills than money I was
sinking into a deep depression, and getting ready to lose my
I.S.P. I had planned on letting the site just die and fade
away, but the friends I had made in the Parrot Head Web Ring would
not let me, or my page go down. With little time or notice Lisa
Harraden and Donna created a site for me on the spot where the Den
currently resides, I had just transferred the last couple of my
files when my ISP cut me off. Lisa even tended my page
and kept it up for me when I had no way of getting on line, I had to
email her using free JUNO mail.
I did eventually get back up on my feet, and the web site
did have a few moments in the sun, but then too much work took me away
again. I have thanked these people before, but I don't think they
will ever know how much I still think of them even though I have gotten so
busy that I have neglected contact. So Guys this is for you.
Some of these people were around when I needed them most,
and when the turbulent storms of my personal life raged,
their encouragement like a Light House shinned through, and
helped me find my way to calmer waters.

Parrot Head Joins my Phlock:
Well the condition is contagious. I have always played
Jimmy Buffett in my car, and on my guitar. While my niece Chrissie was just a
little kid growing up she always heard Buffett music around me. I
would pick her up from school, or tote her and her friends around when my sister
needed me to. Chris has always loved the song "Treat
Her Like a Lady" and "Brown
Eyed Girl" (she thought the song was written especially for
her). Last Christmas she got me the CD "Songs
You Know by Heart" but before she gave it to me she saw I
already had it, so she kept the CD for herself and started listening. That
wasn't really enough to make her a parrot head though. I missed the
Concert in Atlanta this year (I know, no Excuse, SHAM ON ME !!) , but my niece's
dance partner that she takes *Shag
Lessons with, had someone back out on him so he had a spare ticket and asked
Chris if she would like to go. Chris of course said yes, tenth row seats, she
could actually see Buffett's face she was so close. One concert is all it took.
When she got back home she asked me if I could give her a formal Buffett
Education because she didn't Know all the
Songs by Heart, at least the new ones. So an Orthodox Parrot Head
if ya ever saw one. And ain't she pretty? And no comments on how she
couldn't be related to me. OK.
