Le Mie Cravatte con Pranzo: 18 Feb 13

ROME EDITION

I like neckties and I try to wear one every day. Lets see if I can make a swing through my entire collection.

Flying home from Rome I wanted to catch the spirit of the the gentleman we saw on Isola Tiberina who was walking around in his pajamas and slippers in a robe complemented with an Ascot smoking a pipe.

Today is out last full day in Rome. We attended mass here at Domus Australia in the Chapel of St Peter Chanel. Yesterday Traveler Nell suggested I offer my Lectoring services but we decided against it in the end.

Well mass had started and I regretted not making the offer. But lo and behold if Fr. Joseph didn’t give me the nod at the appropriate moment and I ended up doing it after all. It was quite the thrill.

Anyway, here is the tie.

Today’s tie is one I have worn once a year since 2007. It was that year I had open heart surgery. I decided to get this tie to wear the day before my operation. That day happened to be February 14. Every year after that I wore it on the 15th, my anniversary.

Since 2009 though St Valentine’s Day has had actual meaning so for the past couple years I’ve worn it on the 14th.

Today’s tie was a gift from my niece Emily. She picked this tie because she knew we would be spending Ash Wednesday with Pope Benedict. Our plans may have been altered slightly but not so much that I won’t wear this swell tie to St. Peter’s.
