Do you know?

Strawberry Days is coming up at the end of the week and this year the theme is “Strawberries in Paradise,” a tribute to Jimmy Buffett. In honor of the big event here’s a trivia quiz (with thanks to our own Lynn Burton).

1. Who wrote the hit song, “Margaritaville?” (Hint: It wasn’t Jimmy)

2. Jimmy had a home in this area at one time. Where was it?

3. Early in his career the Jimster recorded a song about a 1950s TV character. Who was the character and what was the name of the song?

Sorry, no prizes given for the winner except having your name printed in the paper, which may or may not be such a good thing. E-mail your answers to:
