This is National Smile Week! Or at least it was, in 2010 and 2013, according to some Web calendars. (Maybe reading that made you smile or smirk?) Anyway, Snoopy Joe Preppy is always ready to show his smile. And so am I.

Happy Birthday to our son (by inclusion) David Haskins! David spends many hours making things work well at the Amazon distribution center in Lexington, KY. This tie originally belonged to James Michael Haskins, David's father, and I'm very proud to wear it in David's honor today!

Happy Birthday, Gary Larson! The creator of The Far Side cartoons was born on this date in 1950. I have no official Far Side tie, but I think my "Silly Songs with Larry" VeggieTales® tie, covered with singing vegetables, matches the absurdity of Larson's humor. Several Far Side cartoons feature characters named Larry, such as this one. You can view more Far Side comics here.

Yesterday was Susan Burberry's birthday! Susan and her husband Clyde David have been special family friends since soon after we arrived in Berea, Kentucky, in fall 1986. She asked me to wear my "musical angels" tie because she has a nice collection of angel art and figurines. (I didn't wear a tie yesterday because Beth and I were busy celebrating our 42nd wedding anniversary!)

With no special occasion to celebrate today, I chose to show off one of my birthday presents! This tie came from my grandson Nate (Nathanael), with shopping help from sister Mallie. Nate David and his father Jonathan have shirts with plaid patterns very similar to this!
