And the artist, one Laura Lakey, read Boomerang over a year ago, liked it and offered to do a cover for me. I had no money and was not about to ask her to do it for free, so I saved up until I could come within about a mile of what her work is worth and she did a great job. The figure on the left is her conception of Bethie. The guitar on the right is a Gibson L5-CES.
I was joking, of course, abut it being Jerry. I had her pegged for Bethie all along; I knew Jerry couldn't look that good. It is a great cover!
