Thanks for clearing that up for me. Guess I'll have to keep up with the training.

Yep. My running days ended when they cut off part of my foot. On the bright side, I can now break my foot of in someone's azz with no pain.

I have to disagree with the lady on the inside for protection. This was probably dreamed up by Emily Post or someone similar so women would not get splashed from dirty wet streets. A gentlemen's posture in gentler times? A man never tied up his weapon hand. The weak arm was there to sweep the woman out of danger while the strong arm was to draw the weapon and defend. Sword, dagger or firearm makes no difference. Those walking sticks were not just for decoration and neither were the umbrellas.

I meet regularly with several other "old farts" for coffee.

When we send an E-mail to each other about a get together, the title is "battle staff meeting." We're all veterans.

We paddle kayaks with a bunch on Monday, Wednesday and Friday mornings. On Saturday we hike with an old fart hiking group in the desert. The hike leader is 83.

I don't get around as well as I used to, but I'm proud to be an Old Fart...
