I'm passing this on as I did not want to be the only geezer receiving it.


Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called as you will see....


'Geezers' are easy to spot:
At sporting events, during the playing of the Star Spangled BANNER. Old Geezers remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment. They know the words and believe in them.

Old Geezers remember the Depression, World War II, Pearl Harbor , Guadalcanal , Normandy and Hitler. They remember the Atomic Age, the Korean War 1950-55, The Cold War, the jet age and the moon landing, the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to 2005 the Jet Age and the Moon Landing, 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 on TV or in movies or in e-mails.

Old Geezers have moral courage. They seldom brag unless it's about their 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 decent values.

We need them now more than ever.



Thank God for Old Geezers!

Heck, I guess you could call me an OLD GEEZER too.


Hey squirt. I know how old you are. You have "geezer" qualities but a few years to go to be a real old geezer. But don't change anything. :clap:

Depends on which side he was fighting on................ :nod:

I assume that you are talking about the "War of Northern Aggression"?

I was worried that I might be getting to be an old geezer then I saw the stuff about the depression, WWII, and Pearl Harbor. They were all before I was born. So I guess I am a middle age geezer. I just knew I was too young to be old.

Well, I'm not even 30 yet, but I believe in those same principles. I wish more 20-50 year olds did.

It doesn;t really have all that much to do with geezerdom. It's about having proper upbringing. I was a geezer at 7 or so by those standards and I would hazard a guess most of the older memebers were too.

It is not that I am that old (49) but more a matter of not wanting Daddy to tan my hide!

One of the first lessons in ethics I distinctly remember was to never pet anyone else's dog. That one came at about age 3. Old Fido wouldn't be a good watchdog if he was looking forward to every Tom, Dick and Harry coming around scratching his ears. Lots of city folks have not been taught those ethics. When someone starts wanting to befriend my dog, I get suspicious. Good folks never try to pat old Rover
