Come Around

My true Story is that I have never been to Windsor and I don’t teach a half knot or full knot I just simple say “Come around. Come around. Bring it up. Bring it down. Slide it Up. That is it. You have tied a tie. So never quit.” Kids hear me speak and chant these words like their favorite song and a few minutes later they have learnd how to tie a tie that will never go wrong. Focus on what you can do to help someone else make it through.
