Don't mess with old guys....they don't get old by being stupid! +1 for old good guys (or good old guys) everywhere!!!! I'm not anywhere near his age yet, but I'm old by association as my best friends are. My wife says they're rubbing off on me (to which I say, Cool!!!).
No time or patience for BS, call it the way you see it, and sometimes the truth is ugly but it still needs to be said.
I will be using that line (or various slants on it) in the future..."You became a man when you....."
My daughter asked me one time why I carried a gun and I said, "Because I'm too old to fight and too slow to run."
