To put it in its simplest form - grabatology is the collecting of ties.
That makes me a grabatologist.
It's something that I'm proud of and enjoy doing. I have approximately 300 ties at the moment (although I must admit that it has been a while since I counted). The ties I have collected over the years have come from many places around the world and many of them have been given to me by people.
In many respects I love the ties that have been given to me the most because they all have a story. That story is not just mine but it also belongs to the giver of the tie. It is these stories about my ties that I want to share with the world.
