Very tiny fragment of my day

Q: What do Josh Ritter, coffeeem, and my grandfather have in common?

A: They can all make me care about myths and tropes of the American (Cowboy) West when precious little else can.

(I don't have the data about coffeeem to say whether "A2: They are all good company when driving across Souther Minnesota" is accurate, but I played Josh Ritter albums through the misty hills and prairie, and I've enjoyed talking to my grandpa in similar circumstances.)
