Of course, now I am curious?
Could you define "old fart"? Is an "old fart" over the age of 65?
thanks!

In Human Resources terms it's > ( some number < 40 ) it seems, but in my case you would have to transpose your digits

Well Done Barry. Now you have to get a perfect score on your SCJD, or I won't let you live it down.

Congratulations on your great score Barry!
The great thing about passing the exam when you're old is that the expiration date might prove to be a non-issue!

Actually, with the hatchetmen running around like they are doing at my place, that could be too true!

Wow, I'm truly impressed!
Was it scary?
I'm considering taking the exam myself someday, but I'm scared to death at the prospect.

How does one qualify for the Old Fart category? Does over 40 count, or does one have to be over 60?
Congrats, Barry!
