    Why do I get the idea that these ties can be found in the real-life-Man’s collection?

    How about a book showing different ways of tying the necktie?

    Why don’t people give bow ties?

    My dad almost never wore a suit and tie. The wildest tie he ever possessed was one of those extra wide 50’s style ties with what looked like a water color painting of a pair of pheasants. It was a gift from one of his brothers. My dad always said if we buried him in a suit, he would come back and haunt us. Instead, he was wearing a western style shirt with a bolo tie when he went to his final resting place, slacks from his favorite sporting goods store, and of course, his western style boots!

    The flamingo tie is undoubtedly attractive, But I will take a pass on it in favor of the strawberry pie my wife is cooking up for me.

    I have a couple ties from each of my grandfathers’ collections- they of course belonged to a generation that wore ties A LOT so they had a lot of ties (having four children each probably helped with that as well)- and I occasionally wear one to work. Several of my cousins also chose ties from the collections. Sharing out and picking the ties with the cousins are good memories that I am glad I have.

    I am waiting for the chocolate pudding to cool for my husband’s chocolate cream pie so it can go in the fridge for tomorrow (still have to make the pie shell and the whipped cream — but that’s a tomorrow project). AND he gets a funky tie (plus a couple more finds from the local thrift store). But no flamingos.

    No lie! A dyed tie you might enjoy in some wry way; a too tight tie – don’t even give it a try! – dyes your tongue and dries your eye, till you think you’ll die….ay, sigh! Bye!

    Happy Fathers day to all the dads out there and all the moms who stepped in to fill the shoes of a Dad.

    In honor of Father’s Day and a salute to the foolishness of most (if not all) men, I have a new short story for all of you. The story can be found on, and it’s called Overdoing It.

    This is an answer to the problem of being given two neckties, wearing one, and being asked “So what’s wrong with the other one then?” … the cats are playing with it.

    My parter has a large collection of unusual ties, many of which have been rhinestoned. I think my favorite, just for absurdity, depicts a shrimp cocktail and bottle of Tabasco.

    Made up by myself

    Down around Miami

    On the beach by Biscayne Bay,

    Listen for the Pink Flamingo,

    On the Saxophone as he plays.

    Playing smooth and mellow,

    Or sad and oh, so blue,

    Listen for the sax fellow,

    And he knows just what to do,

    Plays the song of Earl Bostic (look him up on Google)

    Listen as you walk on by

    Leave a dollar in the bucket,

    Or buy a new necktie!

    For my current jobs initial interview over 25 years ago, I showed up in a suit and tie. I realized I was obvioulsy overdressed, and felt like a fool the whole time. Can imagine Ill ever wear one again much if at all.

    Perhaps, in real life, the Dunn household celebrates Father’s Day by buying the Man another plaid (that’s tartan to Robin) flannel shirt.

    Anyone notice the notch in Beatrix’s ear? That’s done when a colony of wild cats are caged, spay/neutered and released back to where they were caught. My neighbor has a Maine Coon with that.

    In the 90s, my mom collected all of my dad’s 1980s ties, cut them up, quilted them, and used them to make teddy bears. They were gorgeous.

    Back in the 1970s when my Dad wore ties I used to make them for him. I used bold prints mostly and he seemed to be fond of them, but I doubt that he ever talked to one!

    Aww, Pucky is even friends with his tie.

    Elbiff is surprisingly happy that the man has a “World’s Best Dad” tie. I would have thought that that honour resides with Elbiff and Elbiff alone, according to Elbiff.

    Will we see new ties for the BCN crew? Perhaps the Flamingo playing the saxophone will make into the BCN wardrobe TARDIS (or Warehouse 13).

    The last time Dad wore a tie was at my cousin’s wedding earlier this year. Before that, it was my first wedding. He didn’t wear one at Mom’s funeral (or their wedding) as no one would have recognized him – he is just not into them.

    I wasn’t lucky enough to have a dad like The Man, but one Father’s Day I will ne’er forget was when Mom found this greeting card… well, Dad was an expert fisherman and had his own craft business making high quality fishing lures. So this card has a silly looking cartoon fish wearing a tie,and underneath it says “Hey Dad! Guess what this is?” and he opens it up and it says “IT’S YOUR FATHER’S DAY COD!” He loved it!

    I am glad that last panel described the tie. Now I can see it. Before, it looked like a pink turkey smoking a hookah. :)
