I'm an old Fart...

Taken from www.3500HD.com but I wanted to share;



I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only old fart receiving it, so if you

know any other than me, send it to 'em.

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 Star Spangled Banner. Old Farts

remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment.

They know the words and believe in them.

Old Farts remember the history of World War II, Pearl Harbor, D-Day, Iwo Jima ,

Tojo and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War, The Cold War,

the Jet Age and the Moon Landing, 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.

If that isn't the truth, I don't know what is? Our work ethic has gone in the toilet. Age of technology does have it's pitfalls, and kids these days don't know what hard work really is. Everyone has a handout, testifying they have suffered a great deal.

Why farm half when you can FARMALL!

Give fools their gold, and knaves their power;
Let fortune's bubbles rise and fall;
Who sows a field, or trains a flower,
Or plants a tree, is more than all.- Whittier.

When you subsidize poverty and failure, you get more of both
