Some Ties

I'm on my own this week. It's just me and the cats on holiday. Don't worry though; I've got plenty of things to occupy my hours. As you might imagine, a trip to the Isabella Stewart Gardiner Museum in Boston, scheduled for Thursday, is up in the air at this point, but I'll have plenty to do otherwise. Nothing big and serious, mind you, but I'll be occupying my time. A bit of business I hope to get out of the way is learning how to tie my bow ties by myself. I don't wear them to work every day, but I do like the trendy look. Note: my love of cowboys and paisley can be seen in most. Yes, I do rely on a couple of youtube videos, but practice, practice, practice is the key... even with laughter in the background. Right now, Elenka is my backup system, so I know her fingers are crossed in Oviedo, as I type these words.
So, this week I do hope to 'tie one on'; hopefully with no hangover involved.

  3. Well, I'll be wishing you luck with this one. I can't seem to get a perfect square knot in a scarf any longer and I used to be so good at it.

  12. Wow, bow ties are trendy in New England? "Taint so out here on the prairie. The few who dare get long, strange looks.

  13. I've started to wear regular ties to work on occasion such as when meeting with customers and such. Some of the younger coworkers are starting to tease me about maybe wearing bow ties. So I started asking how much is worth to you, so they have started talking about gift cards to a local coffee shop but then are talking about wearing one so many days in a row like I'm afraid of doing or something. So I'm seeing where this will go. I will keep you posted.

  14. I am curious about tying bowties. Each morning I watch my husband tie his tie for work, yet I still cannot manage to that.
