But I never bothered to buy him a tie. My sisters and I knew what he wanted more. My Dad was a very quiet gentle caring father of four girls - no boys! Thinking back I am sure Dad was a little "over his head" with all of us girls. I dont think he really knew what to do with us. "No rough-housing" was a standard phrase my Dad would use.
