We’re retired. And as full time RV travelers, we don’t have the need to have fancy clothes with us as we’ve left our military and corporate lives behind.
I gleefully gave all ten of my business suits, all my dress shirts, pants, shoes and ties to Goodwill before we hit the road. Those suits, which I wore almost daily have not been missed.
Just in case, I kept one blue blazer, a tie and a dress shirt in the event that something happened that I couldn’t attend in shorts and a Hawaiian shirt. Thankfully, no invitations came from the White House for lunch with our president so those clothes were not needed.
We arrived in the Roanoke, VA area to attend a wedding for a very close friend and former co-worker of Marti’s.
I had to drag out my blazer from the garment bag and locate the tie. Searching high and low, the tie was nowhere to be found, necessitating a fast run to a store to buy a new one. Successfully purchasing a new tie, all that was left for me was to try and remember how to tie it in a proper Windsor knot.
To document this very rare occasion, Marti and I tried to take a selfie as a memento. After a bunch of tries, we narrowed the pictures down to just these two. Of course, no matter how hard we tried, one of us would look great and the other not so great.
I can’t understand the fascination with selfies…
The final insult to my tie wearing, after my struggle to get the perfect Windsor knot, I donned my blazer, put my hand in the pocket and found the one tie I had saved.
I probably will have to buy another tie sometime in the future because I won’t remember I’ve put a tie in each pocket of my blazer. :c)
