Olde Farts -- God Bless Us

The articles that I post is because I think they are of interest to someone else. By posting these articles doesn’t mean that I necessarily agree with every—or any—opinion in the posted article. ~~~~

I never really liked the terminology "Olde 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 "Olde Fart" friend of mine!

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

Olde Farts are easy to spot at sporting events; during the playing of the National Anthem. Olde Farts remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment.  They know the words and believe in them.
Olde 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 Olde Fart on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Olde Fart on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Olde Farts trust strangers and are courtly to women.
Olde Farts hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.
Olde 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.
Olde Farts have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it's about their children or grandchildren.
It's the Olde 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 Olde 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 Olde Farts!

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