Why Grampy Wears a Tie to Work

Grampy wears a tie to work each day. When he first started this job a few years ago Amara and her Mommy helped me pick out some new ties for him as his old ones had certainly seen better days. Amara’s Daddy doesn’t have to wear a tie to work so both Amara and her Mommy had fun helping me pick out new ones. Ties are way cooler than they used to be!

He wore ties the first year on the job. He didn’t really want to but he always did because it was in the dress code! Since NO ONE else wore them he finally quit after about a year. I can sure understand that. The AC in his car isn’t working so no tie is certainly cooler but he still wore a nice dress shirt and slacks.

Well, when his birthday came this year Amara wanted to buy him a tie and I told her he doesn’t wear them anymore. I explained the whole story to her and she says “I think Grandpa should still wear a tie because it makes him unique”. And with the exception of one day when he forgot he has worn a tie every day since I told him what she said. He loves it! She loves it!

    I love it when handsome “older” men have a special trademark. My father loved pink shirts, and the ladies loved him in them. During his last illness, some visitors were teasing him about how he needed to get out of his hospital gown and back into his pink shirts, when my brother walked in–wearing a pink shirt!

    Although I think neckties are in the same category as pantyhose, uncomfortable but attractive, I must say that I love a man in a crisp white shirt and beautiful tie.
