Parrot Head Pup (Growing Older But Not Up!)

Last weekend, Jimmy Buffett played his annual Labor Day Weekend Show at the Jiffy Lube Pavilion in Northern Virginia.  Since there was no hurricane this year to interfere with things, of course my parents had to be there.  And this time, I got to tag along!

Not quite sure I approve of Dad's clothing choice

But this could be an adventure

Mom says decorating the car is half the fun

In the parking lot at the show

This total stranger asked to have her photo taken with me
(these things happen when you are famous like me)

Waiting in line

We got GREAT seats

Enjoying the show
(and it was a GREAT show)

Mom says Jimmy Buffett always looks like
he's having a good time

The Daddy-Dog-mobile found its mate

Proof that my parents weren't the only ones being silly

Mom says that one of the many things she loves about Jimmy Buffett concerts is seeing a bunch of middle aged people like herself being totally silly.  Mom and Dad are both very much in favor of "growing older but not up".

But sometimes they take silliness a little too far . . .

 They tried to put the shark hat on me while I was sleeping

Not liking the shark hat

I liked going to Northern Virginia and staying in a nice hotel and smelling Northern Virginia smells.  Mom and I found some pretty flowers on an early morning walkie the day after the show.

But why can't I go swimming in the pond in front of the hotel?


  1. Did you get to eat a cheeseburger in paradise? BOL My peeps KNOW every Jimmy Buffett song...they even have a few of his cassettes...haha...yes that ages them a bit!

  2. OMD those northern Virginia smells must has been fantastic! I think your parents gots a problem: they is Parrotheads. But I thinks they has a surgical to correct the condition. It is ok, my Mama has a friend with Parrothead too. It looks like you guys has a really fun adventure.


  3. Ok, your peeps must know mom. They get nutty over that Jimmy. We see they are trying to lure you in

    Best wishes Molly

  5. *whew* I'm so glad I have NORMAL parents. Heehee. Um. Well, maybe 'normal' isn't the first word that comes to mind when I think of Mom and Dad. But hey, your parents were having fun, and that's all that matters! Although we can't say we blame you about not enjoying the shark hat. We wouldn't be too wild about it, either. But definitely sign us up for the cheeseburgers in paradise! (That's also known as Saturday afternoon for us!) ;-)
