Bath County News-Outlook Your Hometown Newspaper Sept. 15, 2010 12 You Can Turn A Necktie Dog Into A Workhorse Aside from the fact that most women are color un- conscious when it comes to selecting men's neck- wear, they are suckers for every new fad, includ- ing the new hoss-blanket ties the mod crowd is now sporting. She brought home one of those big wide jobs. And so it won't be a total loss, I am now sketching out a diagram for pockets on the back of the tie. No man in his right mind is going to wear that much clothing without a pocket in it for functional use. I figure there is ample room for my notebook, bottle of aspirin, road map, underarm deodor- ant, condensed fishing kit, local phone directory and first aid kit. "In fact, in an emer- gency to dress hurriedly, I could just put on this long, wide thing and no one would notice I didn't have on any clothes," I told my wife. It is not that we moun- tain folks don't under- stand or appreciate high fashion. We haven't had time for it yet. And we And we haven't figured Honoring Russ Metz out what to do with all the stuff we carry around in our pockets. Clothes are fashionable not because they have something but only when they don't have some- thing. If you are a fash- ionable man, for instance, you do not have a watch pocket in your britches. If you are a fashionable woman, you do not have a skirt. This trend has been noticeable for some time to use sharp-eyed observers, particularly the non-skirt look. If you are a man, you do not have a vest with your suit. To have one is to ad- mit that you are hopeless- ly out of date and wear the vest because you like to carry Bull Durham from a vest pocket with the tag hanging jauntily out as a status symbol. Of course, it is acceptable to wear a weskit because it is a vest that does not have a suit. You do not carry a bottle aspirin or even a bottle of bourbon in your pockets. This is crass. Strictly rube stttff. You carry your benemid or pot in a briefcase, which also makes you look impor- tant enough that the boss would allow you to take home company papers. "I didn't buy you that necktie so you could load it down with enough junk to give you a hang-dog look," Mamma informed me. "If I had wanted you to have an apron with pockets, I would have bought you one." Reluctantly, I agreed to negotiate. I would dispense with the note- book and fishing kit. No knowledgeable newspa- perman carries a 'note- book, anyway, if he did, somebody might accuse him to misquoting him. And the reporter on checking his notebook might find this was true. A lack of notes on such matters lends to an at- titude of greater imagi- nation and more colorful stories. Then I can always put the condensed fishing gear where I keep my collapsible spin reel and rod-taped to my shin- bone. It's probably just as well. Herbert Hoover was the only man known to fish with suit and tie on, and you know how history treated him. He always wore a vest to hide his wide tie, so we never knew if he had pockets put into his neckwear. It is doubtful, though. Back then few people could afford a tie- ful of anything. Just to keep peace in the family, I may wear the new tie. My bib over- alls can cure a multitude of fashion ills. --The Pied Typer-- This is one of those weeks when everything is "at sixes and sevens." Any old time dice shoot- er can tell you what that means, if he has seen a six and a seven turn up on the cubes and has re- quested an explanation from the shooter. It means things are a bit confusing and mixed up. The same way it has been for the last 600 years, which is how long this term has been used. Geoffrey Chaucer and William Shakespeare found things at sixes and sevens and said so in their writings. Experts say the expres- sion originated from the ancient dice game, specu- lating that the old time dice had more spots on them than our modern ones. This is the kind of experts you like to get into a table stakes game to get well quick. Chances are, he will accept a 12- spot pair of dice as legit and you can shear him with sixes and sevens all night. Having conducted some high-priced experiments over the years in this field, I have concluded that the modern-day dice are just like the old time dice, all loaded, and when a fellow rolls a six and a seven you simply lay one hand on the dice, the other hand on your pistol butt and politely request an explanation, which usually can give. Of course ordinary peo- ple should never play dice. colorful phrases. Every- one knows a four-flusher is a phony and a fake who would bluff to try to make a bobtailed flush stand up. A fellow who is well heeled has money, but he originally was a man who had a fighting cock with steel gaffs on his spurs. Some weeks. Like this one, when everything is "at sixes and sevens" you don't need a horoscope to It is immoral, wicked and tell you to stay away from too fast for them. And crap games. The best you putting to much faith in can hope for is to hold other people's galloping onto your seat and get a dominoes is putting you horse cut on what is hap- at sixes and sevens, pening to you.
