I was in CT over 20 years ago showing Allen the plans for my new house in Townsend. A fellow walked up and asked for directions to Bellevue. Since I had lived in West Mead for years and that was my part of town, I told him how to get there. We chatted for a minute and he left. Allen said, "Do you know who that is?" I said, "naw". He told me the man was Jimmy Buffett. Sure enough, I walked up to the front of the store to get a better look at him. He was Jimmy Buffett. So I tell everyone I know now, Jimmy Buffet and I are close personal friends.
