I remember meeting Jay`s mother with my grandmother in May 1976 when Mavis and Jay went out on date in Cleveland, working at Comedy Clubs. He left a Motorcycle outside my Uncle`s house. My Grandmother and Aunt said I knew Jay as a Baby in New Rochelle, and his mother baby sat me, given my Grandmother was crippled and maiden name was Nicholson. Mavis is my 2nd Aunt, and I remember NOT DANCING with her at my Cousins Bar Mitzvah in Elmira...and remember why I introduced her to JAY. They cannot divorce, given related to the Catholic Church and Mavis, my 2nd Aunt, is related to Jack Nicholson the actor.
