The Christmas Ties of Jerry Merwin, Ctd.

Jerry tie #1 IMG_9310This is the first of Jerry Merwin’s Christmas ties we told you about yesterday. Jerry says he bought this one five years ago for $1 at a “five-and-dime” in Garland. He bought another one exactly like it except for the color (the other one has a black sky) at the same time. He would have bought more, but they only had the two. If you press a certain spot on this tie, and on the black one, they used to play songs like “We Wish You a Merry Christmas.” Alas, the battery on this one is dead. One woman told Jerry, “I like that tie because it’s bright red, and red’s my favorite color.”
