Dudley's Son Is Going To A Concert Tonight ...

near Dallas to see and hear Jimmy Buffet and the Coral Reefer Band. Frank and one of his High School football playing buddies and two of his College fraternity buddies are going to the show and are going to stay the night in Dallas and then come back home tomorrow. Frank is more of a country and western music fan but are going to see him in part because Jimmy Buffet is a member of Kappa Sigma fraternity. They should have a good time, I hope they enjoy the show and do not get in any trouble over in the big city to the east. Amon Carter always said nothing good ever happened in Dallas. He was fond of saying "Fort Worth is where the West Begins and Dallas is where the East peters out!" This is really starting to make Dudley feel old. When Dudley was a senior in High School, he and a bunch of his friends went to see Jimmy Buffet, he was the lead off band for the Eagles Hotel California concert. We had floor seats down near the stage and that was the absolute best concert Dudley ever attended in his life and he has been to a lot of concerts. At that time, Dudley was 17 or 18 and Jimmy Buffet at age 31 seemed to Dudley to be older than dirt. Thirty two years later, the age difference does not seem nearly as pronounced as it did back then. Dudley and wife and daughter are going to stay home tonight and watch the Dallas Mavericks take on the San Antonio Spurs. We are going to cook some chicken and steaks out on the grill.

I like Buffet's music. My brother is a major parrot head.
I like him as well Hermit, he will put on a good concert I am sure. It is an outdoor concert so hopefully it won't rain and mess up everything.
