New Rules for Old Farts

If you remember when health insurance was optional, you are an old fart.

If you are polite to strangers, you are an old fart.

If you’ve ever changed a typewriter ribbon, you are an old fart.

If there was only one fat kid in your class, you are an old fart.

If you think “Occupy” is a verb and not a noun, you are an old fart.

If you just want to be left alone, you are an old fart.

If you remember when only sailors had tattoos, you are an old fart.

If you remember when civil rights meant equal rights, not reverse discrimination, you are an old fart.

If you’ve never uploaded naked photographs of yourself, you are an old fart.

If you know how to spell, you are an old fart.

If you ever waited to hear your favorite song on the radio, you are an old fart.

If you remember when being radical meant hating the government, rather than relying on it, you are an old fart.

If you know how to get there better than that GPS contraption, you are an old fart.

LOL! Those are great, but I was just starting to get a grip on dealing with the encroaching years and all that relates.
And you had to post this shit to remind me I'm turning into my father. :laugh:

A couple of entries really got me thinking.

This week, I read there is only one company worldwide which even makes a typewriter. It's transparent, extra-heavy-duty, and designed for use in prisons. And the part about feeling hinky if a telephone number had a bunch of 9 or 0 numbers? I still get that one. But then again, I still use a dial telephone.

Use to take my kid there for breakfast every Sunday.   When I did not have to work so the wife could sleep in.  I could get all the coffee I needed for 5¢.

I need the exercise, and besides, I got it free. The only drawback is, I can't get a decent answering machine to work with it. I could have used that during the Michigan primary election season just passed.

I recall at least one meal there. Didn't they evolve into Denny's?

Some did, others became the Jolly Tiger, I think.
If I remember right, the last one remaining Sambo's is in Ca.

After I posted this, I did a search and found their website.
Ya know, it kind of makes me feel good that they weren't able to kill them off. :cool:
http://www.sambosrestaurant.com/

... And then there was one, The Original Sambo's Restaurant.

The Original Sambo’s Restaurant is still family owned and operated by Chad Stevens,
the grandson of the Founder of Sambo's Restaurant, along with his wife Michelle. They invite you to stop in and say hello.

Over the years many myths and rumors abound about the "SAMBO'S" name -
its origin seemingly subject to many ideas as to how the restaurant got its name.

The fact is - SAM (the Founder) was a real person and BO (his partner) was a real person.

Sam is Sam Battistone and Bo is Newell Bohnett, known affectionately to his friends, family and associates as "Bo".
Despite all the other stories you may have heard - this is really how SAMBO'S got its name.
'The Story of Little Black Sambo' by Helen Bannerman was an afterthought. The SAMBO'S RESTAURANT
already was established before the children's story was discovered and used as part of a marketing promotion.

Sam actually had another restaurant on State St. in Santa Barbara called "Sammy's" when the original (and present)
property location (216 W. Cabrillo Blvd) became available.

From 1957 until around 1978, Sambo's was a growing part of the American landscape. For a number of reasons Sambo's
began to slow down and its transition from an innovative coffee cafe in Santa Barbara to a multi-million dollar corporation
began to take its toll - In August 1981 there were 1,117 restaurants in 47 states.

Some restaurants in the Northeastern part of the U.S. tried a new name - ' No Place Like Sam's ' in an attempt to reverse
a four-year tailspin. Sadly, in 1982 all but the original Sambo's in Santa Barbara closed their doors.

In 2012 The ORIGINAL Sambo's Restaurant will celebrate 55 years in business, on the beach !!

Speaking of restaurants, back in the late 1950s in Tennessee, the original Kentucky Fried Chicken was served by uniformed waitresses, bearing heaping huge platters of finger-lickin' heaven. About 30 of us sat at a long common table, and for just a moment we were back in the 1800s, before corporations took us to drive-through lanes now being about 60% of a typical KFC franchise's business.

I have yet to get an order right the first time for Kentucky Fried Chicken.  I always check before I go.   We only go about once a year as the wife likes it.

Well, it turns out that some dedicated Designated Older Americans (under Obamacare, that spells DOA) have updated the "old fart" list in the opener. Here's more....

I'm beyond Old Fart- I'm an Old Shit. Sambo's was not known in my neck of the woods, but everything else rang a bell.
