Hey there! I don't think we've met :).

Linda from PA.
I'm on FB but I still love BN as that's how my husband, Kevin ("Pa Parrot") met all of our Buffett friends.

Hello Phlock! Cyncie here. Living 90 miles from any of the big cities, I don’t have a chance to participate in many Parrothead events. I joined the Virtual Parrothead Club, and love the perks, but still miss getting to know fellow Phlockers. Hoping to make friends here. I love Jimmy’s music, love the island vibe, and am planning to start my beach bum snowbird career in a few years!

Ahoy/hello/whathave you, Phlock!

My name's Beth and I'm from the great state of country music (known as Nashvegas....need I say more? :roll: ). I've been a parrothead since I was a little baby back in 1983 (I could whistle before I could talk, soooo....). I can't pick just one favorite song, since I love them all. I do have a particular fondness for "Jolly Mon" and "Fins".


As it states in my signature, my pop was a BIG time parrothead. He lost his battle to cancer on July 1st of this year (sheesh, it feels like forever ago but it's still July for a little bit longer! X_X), so at his celebration of life, we played A Pirate Looks At Forty. Not your usual funeral song, but hey...it was totally him.


So, hey there!

Hello Beth. Welcome to BN. Stop in and visit us each day at the “MSC” (morning star cafe) thread.

Ahoy to you too, bodypainter and Saltx3 (can I say I love those usernames!? Awesome!)!


I'll try and visit the cafe too, Salt!

Many thanks for the warm welcome and condolences!

Welcome, Beth. :) My son was born in 1983, can appreciate Jimmy's music industry, but not a PH. :D

Sorry for the loss of your father ( I lost mine 11/16) and know that horrible feeling. :(

I am Penny = SMLCHNG = Small Change. ;)

A pleasure to meet you as well, Penny.
It's hard, I admit that. I keep wondering when he would call, but I know he's fine now.
Still, it'll take a while for the hole in my heart to heal.
If that wasn't bad enough, my older brother had an emergency appendix removal (he's a-ok now) a few weeks ago.
If it ain't one thing, it's another...I swear.

Beth - I lost my big brother on 2-3-2003. He was 53, I was 43, my 'favorite' number is 3, and he passed at 3:00 in the afternoon. Damn bone cancer. :evil:

My mom died of lung cancer in 1973 at the age of 53 and her funeral was on my 23rd birthday. Three is my favorite number too.

Can we all just agree that cancer stinks hardcore?

I wish it never existed...

I will 100% agree cancer stinks.

And on a completely different note, hello again. I too miss my old friends, and I thought I'd check in. Not a newbie here, but a long time away.
