The Old Fart Thread

They say, "You're only as old as you feel." So, regardless of your chronological age, if you feel old, then.....

Welcome to "The Old Fart Thread."

Nobody will check your ID and anyone should feel comfortable visiting here. However, if you really want to enhance your bona fides, you might contribute a bit of trivia from way back. I'll start it off, as an example: What was Jerry Lee Lewis notorious for?

So come on in, check your canes and walkers at the door, help yourself to a frosty Metamusil. And we'll all sit around and laugh and tsk-tsk at the kids. ;-}>

I heard the Call of the Geezer!

JLL was known as The Killer and for marrying his underage cousin. And I already knew that, I didn't get it from the 80's movie about him

That's a great movie by the way, Dennis Quaid, yummy!

Here's one for ya........name the 4 sons on My Three Sons. Bonus if you can name the step daughter and the 2 daughters-in-law!

super bonus if you can name the triplets !

I guess I watch too much TV


The first 3 sons were Mike, Robby and Chip. Then Mike moved away and the family adopted Ernie. In real life the actors who played Ernie and Chip were brothers. In later years Robby married Katie and they had triplet boys named Charlie, Steve and Robby Jr. Then Fred McMurray (the Dad) got married to Barbara who already had a little girl named Dodie. Then Chip married Polly and then the show ended.

Haha...wasn't really my bag, don't think I ever saw it...but I have seen every episode of 'Gilligan's Island', most of 'Leave it to Beaver', 'Ozzie and Harriet,' and I love 'Perry Mason' originals through contemporary and if its an old black and white "who done it" I've probably seen it!
I'm only 37, although sometimes I feel 90...does that count Hallyx?

Good one Hallyx...oh, and to answer your question a bit more thoroughly on Jerry Lee...he was also known for playing the piano like the God of music, "Great Balls of Fire!", womanizing anybody in a skirt, and I think is probably one of the fathers of Rock and Roll, since he incorporated a lot of what was called "improper Negro/black sound/music" into more main street Frankie Avalon ...you get the picture! (i knew I should have written a report on him in high school!)

I do! But I'm only 21, so I only know it from the re-runs. :p *lack of original knowledge*

Life.
