I call it timely for a reason. It's one of my favorite ties. Yet, I've only donned it twice in my life. You might ask the question why at this point. Then again, you might not even care. I like tradition. I value poignant moments, so let me share. I usually go with a full Windsor, taught to me by my father, and I did that day April 19, 1975, the day Elenka took my hand in marriage. Dad always told me marrying her was the most important day in my life. He was seer on that point. My response to him that afternoon was, "I know, I know." But I really didn't. I was just mouthing the words for him. I know now! Later, the birth of a son even trumped this day. On that day in April, I wore an off-white suit, in maybe a bit of homage to John Lennon. I really don't know what I was thinking, really. Last February, I tied it on for only the second time, almost 38 years to the day. It's a great tie with scantily clad young ladies dancing to and fro. Don't hurt your eyes getting too close to the page. Lowell. They were strategically covered up for my day in the trenches. I'll probably sport it again soon. It'll be a special day though. That's for sure. I'll 'tie one on' with the Windsor family, just for Dad.
