B is for...

BUFFETT!!!


That is, Jimmy Buffett! This was taken last summer at a benefit concert at a vineyard on the east end of Long Island.



Here I am! See how close I was to the stage? I upgraded to the VIP section, and it turned out to be the best ticket money I have ever spent! ($150 for preferred seating & parking, wine & dinner vs. $50 to sit on the lawn way back). This was a huge thrill for me, and if I never get to see him in concert again, I'll be happy that I got this opportunity to see him solo!

By the way... there is a knitting connection here. See that bag I'm carrying?


You wanna know what's in it?

The beginnings of this sweater!

Unfortunately I do not have a picture of the sweater at the concert. You know why? Because at the time I was not blog-worthy just didn't think of it. The concert happened before I started blogging, and I was so awstruck by how close I was to the stage--in addition to the food (which included lobster) and wine--that I just didn't think of it. Next opportunity...

Ah, yes, I remember this concert. It was when I decided you weren't blog worthy. But you've changed your stripes, girlfriend. You're definitely blog worthy now. ;-)
