Always carry a tie..............

A fleeing Taliban, desperate for water, was plodding through the Afghan desert when he saw something far off in the distance.

Hoping to find water, he hurried toward the oasis, only to find a little old Jewish man at a small stand, selling ties.

The Taliban asked, "Do you have water?"

The Jewish man replied, "I have no water. Would you like to buy a tie? They are only $5."

The Taliban shouted, "Idiot! I do not need an over-priced tie. I need water! I should kill you, but I must find water first!"

"OK," said the old Jewish man, "It does not matter that you do not want to buy a tie and that you hate me. I will show you that I am bigger than that.
If you continue over that hill to the east for about two miles, you will find a lovely restaurant. It has all the ice cold water you need. Shalom."

Cursing, the Taliban staggered away over the hill. Several hours later he staggered back, almost dead & said,

"Your brother won't let me in without a tie!"

SAW THAT ONE COMING.. But still laughing. Thanks for the laugh.

I carry 3 ties.. one is a "Faternal" tie (ARRL) one is a very nice hand painted silk job, the remaining one is "off the rack" at the low cost store. Trying to recall the name of the tie artist (He is from Detroit and.. Well. I'd expect.. PANGBORN that's it PANGBORN, his ties are worn by Governors, Presidents, CEO's and the like all over the place. Nice tie.

Home is where I park it!

A tie is when get to the finish line at the same time I thought. Never heard of one made out of silk or cotton though. I have never seen a rubber Band. Or a peanut stand. And don't drink water. Just look what it did to the Grand Canyon. And the rust, need I mention the rust.
