Quote of the day...

The thing I like best about the Old Man is that he's willing to talk about what he knows, and he never talks down to a kid, which is me, who wants to know things.
When you are old as the Old Man, you know alot of things that you forgot you ever knew, because they've been a part of you for so long. You forget that a young'un hasn't had as hard a start on this world as you did, and you don't bother to spread the information around. You forget that other people might be curious about what you already knew and forgot.

Robert Ruark,

from "The Old Man and The Boy," 1953
