Vintage ties Roy G. Biv edition

As we learned in elementary school art class, Roy G. Biv stands for the colors of the rainbow spectrum, i.e.  red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo, violet.  

Here's the reds.

I LOVE this one.

Eons ago, I spent 3 years doing temp work at various places.  My favorite gig was in an office where the entire job consisted of putting numbers in a computer.
(I love doing monkey work.)
I enjoyed it so much that although I had been booked to work for a week, I finished up what they hired me to do in three days, which made the client very happy.
  The temp agency, not so much.  

And now, orange:
I know you saw this one before, but it's worth a second look,

Who doesn't love cocker spaniels?

Yes, this one does have orange in it, but yellow ties are hard to find,
so please indulge me.

And what's here is not classic yellow, but close enough.
Yellow ties are hard to find, I tells ya.

I think you also saw this one before but a) it's worth another look, definitely, 
and b) yellow ties are real hard to find.

My favorite shade of green.

Pale, yes, but it IS green.
Green ties sell out very quickly.

LOVE this one.

I'm not going to do indigo, because sadly I don't really know the difference between 
plain vanilla blue and indigo.
And even if I did, I don't know how many indigo ties I have.

Now THAT is an exceptional print.

If you didn't live through the Bicentennial, 
then you just plain didn't live.

We had a tiny ship in a tiny bottle (my hubs loves that kind of stuff),
but one of the cats knocked it over.

 Violet (which I keep typing as 'violent.' Paging Dr. Freud.)
 is even harder to find than yellow.  
This one is REALLY attractive, but my camera didn't like it.

I think you saw this one already, but you're seeing it again.

Bernard Hill is in the house.
