Grumpy Old Men

Twenty four years ago Walter Matthau and Jack Lemon made a movie called “Grumpy Old Men“. It was designed to cash in on the way Lemon and Matthau worked so well together in the movie of Neil Simon’s, “The Odd Couple” and I must admit that at times I feel there is a fair amount of Oscar Madison in me. The Odd Couple was made in 1968.

So what of it? 24 years ago I was a strapping lad of 39. The last thing on my mind was getting to an age when the wheels started to get a little wobbly on the trolley. Time passes and now I am starting to understand the Grumpy Old Man better.

This has not been helped by friends reminding me of my own mortality … like I needed to be reminded of that. So, I have decided that if I am going to be a Grumpy Old Fart, I will be the grumpiest old fart I can be!

You have been warned!

      We can sit and be grumpy together – although I don’t think either of us fits the Felix Ungar mould!
