One of the good things about losing seventy pounds is that I have a neck again. That means I can wear shirts and a tie again.
I probably won’t ever need to wear a tie, but it’s nice to have that option again.
With that in mind, I went digging through my belongings and found bag with four of my great grandfather’s clip-on bow ties.
Much to my surprise, there was a newspaper clipping in the bottom of the bag. I thought it would be about some random relative, but it was about me.
Mr. and Mrs. Albert L. Groff of 171 Shelboudrne Rd. Manoa, have become grandparents for the 31st tim. The newest grandchild is Joseph Patrick Costello III, who arrived at Bryn Mawr Hospital on March 25. The new grandson weighed seven pounds, 13 ounces The happy parents are Mr. and Mrs. Joseph Patrick Costello Jr. of Trooper. Mrs. Costello is the former Trudy Groff.
It was a nice little reminder that I am special.
Look for hot vintage bow-tie action in workshop!
