This morning NWC felt like wearing a bow tie to church, but neither of us knew how to tie one. I had wistfully purchased a bow tie for him maybe a year ago; when I originally bought it, we both tried briefly before giving up and it has remained unused since. Tonight I finally settled down and learned from this Wikipedia image, first on my knee while sitting cross-legged and then on my good ol' teddy bear Brownie. I think he looks rather dapper. Now when NWC has the hankering for a bow tie, I'll be ready.
