The Last of Jerry Merwin’s Christmas Ties

This isn’t one of the treats that Jason is planning, but nonetheless … here’s the last of Jerry Merwin’s Christmas ties, 2011 edition. The St. Paul Place IMG_6271 Santa tiesecurity manager got this one after his wife went shopping on Black Friday at the Dollar Tree in Richardson. “She came home and said, ‘I got you two new Christmas ties,’ ” Jerry recalls. “I said, ‘OK. Now I’ve got 10.’ Of course, that was before I got Sponge Bob.” Like his other new Dollar Tree tie — it has Christmas lights on it — this one plays Jingle Bells, very softly. “People like ‘Frosty,’ ” Jerry says, “because it’s Christmas-time.”
