May 31 in 100 words: tying one on with my grandson

 Twelve days! That’s how long it took me to learn how to tie a tie in 1972. So, when I attempted to teach grandson Nick, 16, I suggested he pack an overnight bag.

Or two.

Nick arrived at our place after school, Friday, and I showed him. A double windsor, just like my dad taught me. Nick put a blue tie around his neck. I had an orange one. Within 15 minutes, Nick had it mastered. Done! And they were perfect which is yet another reason why kids are so much smart.
