My Nephew completely outdid the world. He gave me a copy of The Jam, part one, with a BUNCH of history, signed by the original artist.

He used to chef at a restaurant in Coos Bay and got to know a couple who had retired from tavern ownership in Montana. My copy of the print had hung in their Tavern (live music of course) for nearly 25 years. When they retired it was the only thing they took with them from the joint.

They came in to my Nephew's place regularly for prime rib and he got to know them very well. One day they presented it to him out of the blue as a token of their esteem for him.

He's more of a Part II kind of guy and he just passed it on to me out of the purest kind of selflessness and love. I just don't know if I ever received a gift with as much meaning to me. Holy Cow. What a deal.

Is that "The Jam" by Graham Central Station?
