I never really liked the terminology "Old Geezzers" 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 geezer" friend of mine!
OLD Geezer PRIDE I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only old geezer receiving it. Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called, as you will see.
Old geezers 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 geezerss remember World War II, PearlHarbour , 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 Geezer on the sidewalk he will apologize. If you pass an Old geezer on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Old geezers trust strangers and are courtly to women.
Old geezers hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection.
Old geezers 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 geezers have moral courage and personal integrity. They seldom brag unless it's about their children or grandchildren.
It's the Old geezers 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 geezers 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 Geezers!
Pass this on to all the "Old Geezers" you know.
I was taught to respect my elders. It's just getting harder to find them.
