There’s gold in them thar ties

It becomes a special moment in a blogger’s life/career/project when he/she can use colloquial semi-words like ‘thar’ and think that she/he can get away with it. In my case, I needed a gold pun, and dammit, I went with it. Too late to go back, thar or anywhar.

Who Shot My Couch?

The reason for my gold-digging ways was my Tie du Jour, which is definitely more autumnal than April-esque. It’s from Wembley, which have definitely produced some of my best vintage numbers. Total fire hazard, with all its orlon and dacron  that some moron thought would be a good silk substitute. But, it made for some interesting colors, and in the 60s and 70s, highway-wide came right on the heels of the Mad Men-thinnies.

Some news in the professional arena…our search committee has found a more-than-suitable replacement for my former boss. The Chamber’s new Executive Director is Eve Doi, who has been an executive with the Ames (IA) Chamber. Elaine and I got a chance to speak with her last week, and she will do a fantastic job. As long as she doesn’t institute casual attire for the membership fella, I’ll be ok. Perhaps we’ll get her to wear a tie to a networking event.

Thanks for reading…Brooke
