    Us Old Farts

    I never really liked the terminology "Old Farts" but this makes me feel better about it.

    And if you ain't one, I bet ya you know one!

    I got this from an "Old Fart" friend of mine!






    OLD FART PRIDE

    I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only old fart receiving it. Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called, as you will see.

    Old Farts are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem. Old Farts 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. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War, the Jet Age and the Moon Landing. They 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.

    This country needs Old Farts with their work ethic, sense of responsibility, pride in their country and decent values.

    We need them now more than ever.

    Thank God for Old Farts!

    Pass this on to all the "Old Farts" you know.

    I was taught to respect my elders�.It's just getting harder to find them.

    PBB,
    I remember having to walk 2 miles to a phone box, pickup reciever,talk to operator give number and town, put money in push button A wait for operator to get the number and tell you to push button B then go ahead and talk. After 3 mins operator would ask "Are you extending?" if so you put more coins in and pushed B again.

    I remember going down to the local phone box to dial back to NZ.....Mate had given me a cheat to make the phone free (when still analogue) I would pick up receiver and start pressing one after about 40 secs i would get Dial tone i would then ring NZ 40 mins free etc. Ahhh the good old days when i was a rebel. 555555

    Was given a heap of Phantom comics years back by a GF...... I cut the covers off and stuck them on my wall
    realised one day that number 3 was up there, not worth as much as a **** Tracy, but still worth a tidy penny

    I used to have loads of comics from my childhood. In 2 big boxes. Went back to NZ one day.. and dad said he chucked them out when the moved... I said... "They'll be worth a fortune one day... I was keeping them for my grandkids!"

    Then I gave him one of those crazy stares... as he knew it was unlikely I'd ever breed... 555
