Ties That Bind

This one was a Blue Ribbon winner:

While neckties are the traditional Father’s Day gift, it’s hard for me to believe that most guys are thrilled to get them.  So I thought it would be great to have a little fun with this traditional gift idea . . .

 . . . of course, “Ties that bind” also means the bonds that family members can forge, and who better to do that than the head of the household?
