Tim's Tie Tack Travesty
Since his days in Australia 40 years ago (OH MY!)
Tim has been picking up a tie pin here and a tie tack there. Cheap souvenirs of travel or special occasions etc. Since he has had to wear a white shirt and tie to work everyday of his adult life, his spice is his tie pins. He has one (okay, several) for every occasion
(He has four for Columbus Day).
As a part of cleaning up and organizing his office he has finally tackled the pin collection. He mounted a couple for all to see on the office wall, then mounted 6 more on the back of the door and behind it (They disappear when the door is open). Then he built a new board for behind the door
in the bedroom which also disappears with the door closed (a good conversation piece only if you want to have the conversation). On the bedroom board (above right) the Wales collection runs top to bottom along the left edge and next to it is the England collection. Also on the board is the LDS collection, the Chinese Olympics collection and a dozen others.
two boards mounted on the office wall include two different
2002 Salt Lake Olympic pin collections. The top one(on left) is unique. No one else has a collection of every
Olympic pin with the Salt Lake Temple on it . The bottom board (on right) is Tim's collection of security badges including FBI, Secret Service, and state and local law enforcement.
evening Tim spent a couple of hours creating tie tacks by gluing backs to pins.
He hasn't caught up for several years. On the right you can see a variety ready for backs and some completed. . . from antique Chinese pins dating back to Chairman Mao's day to modern military pins from Latin America. As with many things Gloria is patient in putting up with Tim's Tie Tack problem.Preparing for the Pumpkin Party
Grandkids are having
fun preparing for Halloween. They have been decorating with Pumpkins and trying out their costumes. Last week they went fishing and caught some nice ones.
Gloria went up and spent a couple of days helping out this week. She enjoyed being apart of her brother Neil's stepdaughter's wedding on Saturday.Eastern European Education
Tim is preparing for a trip beginning the end of October to Eastern Europe.
He will be recording the language versions of 'The Restoration' for the L.D.S. Church in Slovakian, Czech, Hungarian, Serbian, Croatian, Slovenian and Albanian. This will be a fast paced trip with long hours in the recording studios in each city. It will be a real education since he hasn't visited Eastern Europe before. He is looking forward to connecting with former EBM missionaries in Croatia, Slovakia and elsewhere. Stay tuned.Mormon Messages Mount in MP3 Media
