Continuing JW’s wart and penny story as I remember it:
So, Jimmy had paused after telling us the first half of his story about his grandfather’s cure for warts.
One person from our small group then rushed him with questions that were no doubt on the minds of all 4 of us, most definitely mine: how can this be? How can a new penny cure a person’s wart? How does this work?
Except that she asked these questions more like: How can this be! How can a penny cure a person’s wart! How does this work!
Jimmy just leaned back in his chair and smiled at us, not saying anything.
For a moment there, I felt we were going to be “short-changed” (lol), by not being offered an explanation for the cure!
But Jimmy did resume his story, revealing to us how he believed this cure worked.
I won’t reveal the ending to Jimmy’s story. It is his story to tell in its entirety.
It must have been extremely difficult, to say the least, for Jimmy to share stories about his father at his first public concert / performance after the death of his Dad about 2 months ago. Thank you, Rob, for posting that Jimmy was able to continue on with this traditional part of his show. (Your description of the venue was fun to read…so glad you were there to enjoy your past memories of it as well as the venue's ambiance during those two special evenings with JW.)
A potential answer to the Rand & McNally question: Maybe Jimmy was joking: it had been some time since he had studied the Atlas or geography in school, and oh boy Glen, it was a challenge to quickly come up with a city name (in other words, another “city song”) as a follow-up to his and Glen’s successful “Phoenix”?
Maybe other fans would know the answers to the other questions Mike listed below?
