A Love Supreme

   Back in the days before digital music, a woman intended to call a record store but dialed the wrong number and got a private home instead. "Do you have 'Eyes of Blue' and 'A Love Supreme'?" she asked.

   "Well, no," answered the puzzled homeowner, "but I have a wife and eleven children."

   "Is that a record?" she inquired. 

   "I don't think so," replied the man, "but it's as close as I want to get."
