The one thing we are starting to see in the news more and more is the fact that the elderly folks have just about had enough!
Nearly every day there is a news story about some older folks standing up for themselves against greater odds! Maybe it's about time some of us start following the examples set forth by the "army of gray"!
It's a shame when the elderly have to show the rest of us how to grow some backbone!
Knife-wielding robber scared off by woman with hedge shearsBy ZEN T.C. ZHENG

A knife-wielding man who demanded car keys from two sisters working in their yard Wednesday morning ran off when one of them confronted him with a pair of hedge shears.
The incident took place around 9 a.m. in the 7900 block of Tomayo Drive in the Mission Bend subdivision.
The sisters, ages 63 and 65, told authorities they were trimming hedges when a man came up to them with a knife and demanded the key to their car parked in the driveway, Fort Bend County Sheriff's Chief Deputy Craig Brady said.
The older sister ran to a neighbor's home to call police while the other turned around to confront the man with the shears she was holding.
"He got scared and just ran off," Brady said.
The time has come when the younger folks, especially in the cities, are going to have to grow some spine and follow the lead set by the "old folks"! That is...if they can keep up with them!
Fresh coffee on the patio! Gotta love this Spring type weather!
