    A friend of mine...a parrothead friend of mine..is going to be interviewed on The Today Show..tomorrow...November 3rd...and it is going to air at 8:09 EST...her interview..

    It is about abuse. And what she went through. And how she has survived and come through it.
    Jimmy Buffett's music was part of what helped her get through a lot of it...and she may show up in full parrothead regalia...(yeah, yeah..we do stuff like that.... ;) )

    She has been an inspiration to me...and a friend...I already told them I'd be late at work tomorrow..and have been given the OK...She also gave me the OK to tell other people....

    So..if you're near a television tomorrow morning...My friend...gaylyn....

    She is one hell of a woman....and on her way to healing.....

    Just got this from her:

    Post Script...

    NBC just called my room and ONLY my taped interview will be on tomorrow.... Anyhoo, what I am saying is that I won't be on the LIVE part of the show..... I will be on, but only for a short time... and it was taped on MOnday.

    She thought that I would be upset...!!!!!

    So look for the "beach blonde".

    Thanks for your sincere prayers.. I really am feeling gentle breezes!!!
    Godspeed to you .

    It's what Jimmy Buffett fans are called....He described us as "Deadheads with Credit Cards"

    Here is a brief summary..

    On Being a Parrot Head

    We are not Parrot Heads because we are Jimmy Buffett fans.

    We are Parrot Heads because:
    – We love the ocean.
    – We love our planet.
    – We love to have fun.

    We are Parrot Heads because:
    – We are not afraid to be silly.
    – We are not afraid to act foolish.
    – We are not afraid of love.

    We are Parrot Heads because:
    – We like scantily clad members of our favorite sex.
    – We like playing in the sun with those same members.
    – We like singing songs that say all of these things.

    We are Parrot Heads because:
    – We believe the best things in life cannot be bought.
    – We believe sharing the best things make them better.
    – We believe in the innate goodness in all of us.

    We are Parrot Heads because:
    – We know shared joy is increased.
    – We know shared pain is lessened.
    – We know a good friend has value beyond measure.

    It just so happens, that Jimmy Buffett sings about all these things.

    So, we are not Parrot Heads because we are Jimmy Buffett fans.....

    ..................we are Jimmy Buffett fans because we are Parrot Heads!

    I belong to two PH clubs..We do a lot of Charity Work..and Volunteer work..and contribute to worthwhile causes...
    My PH friends have gotten me thru so many things in life..I can't begin to even tell you Bear....Just general silliness...Lightens the load for this parrothead on any given day..I can always count on y'all, and them..for a smile....Thanks for that.....

    psssssst.....and we have a hell of a lot of fun! ;)

    She posted something and gave me permission to use it...

    I haven't had a chance to read all of your most kind replies...

    BUT, I do know that GENTLE breezes and KIND thoughts were sent from the BN seas.... I was so thrilled to get the call last night that I wouldn't be on LIVE. I would have pooped my hula skirt, to be certain.

    Regardless.. did anyone tape it??? Or could someone still tape it.. it still hasn't been shown in Central or Pacific time.

    I would so appreciate it...

    Again, thank you all for the love you sent. This community ROCKS.

    I gotta sign off.. pack up and head for the airport to get back to Oregon to my real life and leave this surreal stuff behind me. ciao and amour!!! (sincerely.. to each of you, "thanks so much!!!"!!)
