Eldredge Wednesday

I couldn’t rightly tell you what has led to a week of new tie knots. I think it might be something to do with feeling rather comfortable and not at all self conscious wearing a bow tie on Friday last week. Despite expectations I might feel like a bit of a ‘nana, I enjoyed wearing…
