Some tie anecdotes: At Smuggler's Notch, we have Charlie, who is 75+ years old and skis all the time, for free, of course, and he's quite good. He actually wears a tie when he skis. This last Saturday was our end-of-season ski patrol party which was all that you can imagine, with free beer, free steaks and salmon, provided by the resort. Well, the tradition is that we all wear ties on the slopes on party day to show solidarity with Charlie. I started work at this particular salt mine a couple of years ago and the requirement is: tie. My main squeeze is a quilter and had accumulated many dozens of ties, because there is a quilt pattern that uses ties. Well, when I started at this new place, she hauled the box of ties out of the attic and started a program of dressing me in the morning. Also, she frequents the local Salvation Army for fabric and used clothes. The Sally-Ann has ties for $.50, so she usually picks up a couple every time she goes. As a result, I have, literally, over a hundred ties to choose from and typically wear a different tie each day. Each day the people at work check out my new offering, so I am a little ray of tie sunshine to start their day. I also have brought in a few dozen ties to the office, so many of my coworkers don't put on a tie when they dress in the morning, they arrive tieless and the young clerk in our section chooses a tie for them. Many bristle at having to wear one and I can sympathize because they are an enforced conformity, but they do break up the monotony of the male chest.
