A Christmas Message From Jimmy

Jimmy Buffett has posted a special Christmas message on Margaritaville.com from his boat in St Barth’s:

Good Morning all and Merry Christmas. I am up early waiting for sunrise and the dawn patrol to my surf beach. The line that obviously comes to me now is “these days I am up about the time I used to go to bed”. My kids are now teenagers, which means present opening has gone from 6;30am to 10:00a.m., which translates in my world to the fact that I can go out and score some early morning Christmas waves, have breakfast and be back for present opening. There are some things about getting older that are not so bad. There are many thoughts that could pour out of my head this morning, considering the years I have piled up here on the planet, but I will only put down one here. 62 years ago at this moment (counting the time change from St. Barth to Pascagoula), I was 2hrs and 21 minutes old. That in itself seems miraculous. I hope you have a miraculous moment today as well. Still rockin’ in the free world.

One Love

    Happy Birthday Man! What does a St Bart’s Christmas Tree look like? All I want for my birthday is to get Amtrak’s Sunset Limited back to
    Pascagoula and the gulf coast.
