Actually, it's not a bad thing to be called this, as you will see....
'Geezers' are easy to spot:
At sporting events, during the playing of the Star Spangled Banner. Geezers remove their caps and stand at attention and sing without embarrassment They know the words by heart 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 1950-53, The Cold War, the jet age and the moon landing, the 50 plus Peacekeeping Missions from 1945 to 2005 and the Moon Landing, not to mention Vietnam .
If you bump into an Geezer on the sidewalk, he will apologize. If you pass an Geezer on the street, he will nod or tip his cap to a lady. Geezers trust strangers and are courtly to women. Geezers hold the door for the next person and always, when walking, make certain the lady is on the inside for protection. 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.
Geezers have moral courage. They seldom brag unless it's about their grandchildren, if they have any.
It's the 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 Geezers with their decent values.
We need them now MORE THAN EVER.
Thank God for Geezers
