Taking The "Old Guy" Oath

08 Oct

Well another year has come and gone. On Tuesday, I turned (60) years old and my family had me take an “Old Guy” Oath before we had treats and presents. It goes something like this:

“Raise your right hand and repeat the following. I, Mel Moore, being of questionable mind and aging body, do solemnly declare my self an Old Guy. Therefore, I am permitted to

#1. Scratch my butt in public

2. Drive forever with my left blinker on

3. Pass gas while standing in line at Wal-Mart

4. Jabber incoherently on my blog

5. Snore like a chainsaw

6. Fall asleep with absolutely no warning

You gotta’ love it. It started me to thinking about where I am going with this “age” and “sound mind” scenario. I looked around and came across this video that pretty well sums it up I think. Hope you enjoy it and I hope I can remember to go fishing.

    Mel, first I want to say Happy Birthday.That was some sort of oath, well put. That should do just fine and it also allows you to be a little forgetful too.

    Good evening Mel! Thank you for stopping by and following my Blog – Savage Custom Rods. I would gladly consider putting up a blog roll and share links with you, but I am not sure how to go about doing that. I'm kinda new at this! If you could please explain to me what it is that you're talking about, or explain how to go about putting up a blog roll, I'd greatly appreciate it! Thank you again! Tight lines.

    That is hilarious! Although I don't think you have to wait until you are 60 to fart in line at Walmart. Happy Birthday Mel!
