Old Farts Club, a badge of Honor!

 If you happen to be over the age of 55 you are likely to be called an "Old Fart".  You should feel pride at being called an Old Fart because!
  •  Old Farts  are easy to spot at sporting events; during the  playing of the National Anthem, remove their caps and stand at attention and sing  without embarrassment. They know the words and  believe in them. 
  • Old Farts  remember World War II, Pearl Harbor,  Guadalcanal , Normandy and Hitler. 
  • Old Farts remember  the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. 
  • Old Farts remember the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to  2005, not to mention Vietnam.  
  • If you  bump into an Old Fart on the sidewalk he will  apologize. 
  • If you pass an Old Fart on the  street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady.  
  • Old Farts trust strangers and are courtly to  women.  
  • Old Farts  hold the door for the next person and always,  when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.  
  • Old Farts get embarrassed if someone curses in front of  women and children and they don't like any filth or dirty language on TV or in movies.   
  • Old Farts  have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it's about their children or  grandchildren.  
  • It's the Old Farts who know our great country is  protected, not by politicians, but by the young men and women in the military serving their country.

Thank God for Old Farts!
