Contrary to what you may have heard the internet is not full of useless information I.e. the following informational snippet.

You will also learn...."Old Fart" is a term of endearment.

This bit of info will have selective distribution! Please don't look down on my attempt to inform and educate and to bring further enlightenment to a everyday but foul occurrence.

I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only old fart knowing it, so if you know any other than me, let’m know...

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 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.

We really need 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!
