The "Reefers Make A Visit to LDub's House" Story

It was an ordinary day.  And NO …. I didn't go to the Jimmy Buffett concert held last night at Hershey Park stadium.  The ride is only about 25 minutes from my house, but the walk from the parking lot and the standing in place for three to four hours for the concert would have been a killer. Carol was so disappointed, and I even told her to go with someone else, but we did get to see the concert live anyway.  
She sent me an email during the week from her workplace telling me she found out we can watch the concert live on TV by accessing Margaritaville and streaming it onto our big screen TV.  Went to the local Apple store to find out what I needed and … Viola!  Well, it's showtime and our daughter and granddaughters are here to watch the concert with us.  Actually they came for a Labor Day picnic and are stuck watching the concert with us.  
Granddaughter Courtney took a photo of me and my harmonica
performing with Jimmy and the Coral Reefers. 
They all either fell asleep or spent the evening on their Smart- phones while the concert played loudly on the TV next to them.  Can't believe that don't appreciate a 70 year old musician singing about getting drunk and ………  As for me, I gathered up my musical instrument and played along the best I could to some of the songs.  That was until my wife told me to knock it off, since I was ruining the concert for her for the second time.  It was another extraordinary day in the life of an ordinary guy.   PS - the photos for this story are from my TV.  Evidently they didn't broadcast the concert in HD and the results show it.
