President’s Notes, February 2022

How much do you really know about Jimmy Buffett?

Jimmy was born on Christmas Day in 1946 in Pascagoula, Mississippi. He grew up in Mobile, Alabama, went to Catholic High School and attended the University of Southern Mississippi. After college, he headed to Nashville where he chased women and fame.

His musical success came after his move to Key West in the early 1970’s, where he fell in love with the sea and developed a laid-back, island style attitude while playing in bars for drinks and tips. He claimed that he “almost” decided to support himself illegally by working with drug runners. Instead, Jimmy wisely elected to leave Florida and started singing about Florida.

“Margaritaville” became Buffett’s biggest hit way back in 1977 and his signature song, and the inspiration for his whole brand. He is one of the most recognized and loved figures in popular music and has been for decades. Jimmy could now buy his own island!

Parrot Heads all over the world have adopted Jimmy’s tropical lifestyle. We “party with a purpose.” We are social to the bone and work hard to leave the world a better place than how we found it! We offer an alternative to “everyday” life. Become a member and join in our phun at or attend one of our monthly Friday night phlockings and check out the membership table. We would love to see you! Phins Up! Jan H., President
