I was at the field today between 14:00 & 15:00 all on my own , good flying too. There is a dead sheep along the fence line towards the gate from the pits, I saw the farmer so reported this to her. I hope no one had plans for a BBQ Smile .

Drafting Guys over 60 into the British Army

----this is funny & obviously written by a Former Squaddie---

New Direction for any War: Send Service Vets over 60!

I am over 60 and the Armed Forces think I'm too old to track down
terrorists. You can't be older than 42 to join the military. They've
got the whole thing arse-about-face. Instead of sending 18-year olds
off to fight, they ought to take us old guys. You shouldn't be able to
join a military unit until you're at least 35.

For starters: Researchers say 18-year-olds think about sex every 10
seconds. Old guys only think about sex a couple of times a day, leaving
us more than 28,000 additional seconds per day to concentrate on the

Young guys haven't lived long enough to be cranky, and a cranky soldier
is a dangerous soldier. 'My back hurts! I can't sleep, I'm tired and
hungry.' We’re impatient and maybe letting us kill some asshole that
desperately deserves it will make us feel better and shut us up for a

An 18-year-old doesn't even like to get up before 10 a.m. Old guys
always get up early to pee so what the hell. Besides, like I said, 'I'm
tired and can't sleep and since I'm already up, I may as well be up
killing some fanatical twat.'

If captured we couldn't spill the beans because we'd forget where we
put them. In fact, name, rank, and serial number would be a real

Basic Infantry training would be easier for old guys. We're used to
getting screamed and yelled at and we're used to soft food. We've also
developed an appreciation for guns. We've been using them for years as
an excuse to get out of the house, away from the screaming and yelling.

They could lighten up on the obstacle course however. I've been in
combat and didn't see a single 20-foot wall with rope hanging over the
side, nor did I ever do any push-ups after completing basic training.

Actually, the running part is kind of a waste of energy, too. I've never seen anyone outrun a bullet.

An 18-year-old has the whole world ahead of him. He's still learning to
shave, to start up a conversation with a pretty girl. He still hasn't
figured out that a baseball cap has a brim to shade his eyes, not the
back of his head.

These are all great reasons to keep our kids at home to learn a little more about life before sending them off into harm's way.

Let us old guys track down those dirty rotten coward terrorists. The
last thing an enemy would want to see is a couple of million ****ed off
old farts with attitudes and automatic weapons who know that their best
years are already behind them.

***How about recruiting Women over 50 ...with Menopause!!!

You think Men have attitudes!!! OHHHHHH my God!!!

If nothing else, put us on border patrol....we’ll have it secured the first night!

Share this with your senior friends. It's purposely in big type so they can read it.
