A tie, some jazz and thinking about my uncle

I am listening to jazz (JIMMY SMITH) while I drive around and wearing my UNIVERSITY OF OREGON NECKTIE today, both in honor of my late uncle
ROGER HOGSTROM passed away over the weekend, and his funeral is today.
I wish I could be there, in TIGARD, ORE., but distance, finances and domestic commitments here (JILL is away on a business trip this week) keep me here instead.
My uncle was a U of O grad who loved jazz.
My listening to jazz and wearing a tie are little, inconsequential details, but at least to me, they show my solidarity with other members of my family on this sad day.
