Tie rockets in flight…

Ah, Afternoon Delight, perhaps one of the cheesiest songs of the last century, despite the fact that it’s describing quite a pleasant experience. I must admit that the chorus lyrics were the only ones I knew, before the magic of Google sent me to the promised land. Oh, Starlight Vocal Band, how in the hell are you only a one-hit wonder?

Some nuggets:

Rubbin’ sticks and stones together makes the sparks ignite/And the thought of rubbin’ you is getting so exciting

Rubbin’?! Rubbin’ is pretty heavy stuff for the 70s. Where the hell was Tipper Gore then? Rubbin’ on Al is HER Inconvenient Truth, I guess. They probably rubbed out a few kids because of this song.

I always though a fish could not be caught who wouldn’t bite/But you’ve got some bait a waitin’ and I think I might try nibbling a little afternoon delight.

Now, actually reading the meter on this line makes me realize why SVB was a one-hit wonder (took too many pulls off the one-hitter, for one)… The whole fishing analogy is just unsexy, day or night. I need to erase this from my brain, lest I have this cheese running through my head all day. I do apologize if that happens to you.

Ooh! Aaahhh!

I reference the term ‘sky rockets’ because I thought my Tie du Jour resembled fireworks. It’s one of my few remaining lively ties, so I had to make it work well with its shirt. The TdJ is from Geoffrey Beene, and I like how it’s a bit on the thin side. Not quite Draperian, but definitely just a one-lane road. I bought this at Unique, which is probably the provider of most of the (more than) 100.

I wanted to mention that Lee Allison was kind enough to extend the special 25% off promotion at their website. Their amazing ties are well worth a look, and you may be able to knock out some Christmas presents early.

Guys With GREAT Ties...

My roving photographer (aka Mom) got a shot of some Guys With Ties. I present some Florida GWT…Brian Haugen (seated) and Steve Cann. Brian is Chairman of the Board of Directors at the Destin Area Chamber of Commerce, and he and Steve are with Emerald Coast Wealth Advisors, an affiliate of Raymond James & Associates.

So, thanks, Mom, for snapping some pix. And thanks, to you, for reading…Brooke
