OK. I’m really going to need your help here. Merrin & I were in the process of planning one of those ‘once in a lifetime’ type trips to Ireland for our birthdays (May 29 & May 30). I’ve got the travel benefits from work to cover almost all of the costs, so it’s something that we normally wouldn’t do for ourselves (at least not at this juncture). Five days or so in Ireland traveling, seeing all the sights of my forefathers, and eating & sleeping in some of the most incredible places you can imagine.
Then today, they had to go and announce this. And it’s not “just” a Jimmy Buffett concert (as if there is such a thing). It’s Jimmy Buffett, Alan Jackson, and George Straight for like six plus hours at Texas Stadium on Merrin’s birthday.
So, do we head off to Ireland and tell ’em to kiss our shamrocks, or do we load up the Mound crew, call in the babysitter (!), and go see one of the most incredible Memorial Day Weekend concerts ever?
