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!



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

    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.
