There are many topics the Old Men of the Mountain have discussed via the now technology-loaded instruments developed by ole Alex G. Bell.

The phone calls today brought information that some of the Old Men of the Mountain are gathering in small groups of three to five people.

Boy! The news of the day politically might change some opinions both ways. A few of the Old Men of the Mountain I talked to commented that both sides of the fence are filling up.

It is tough to know where to begin. The few Old Men of the Mountain this scribe has spoken to are just like the scribe. None of them have really gone anywhere.

We all wish, hope, pray for this “pandemic” to be over. The disruption is getting to be a real pain. Pretty soon it will become commonplace; however, the OMOTM are still around and waiting.

Some of the Old Men of the Mountain are taking chances and are going out to a few restaurants; however, this scribe is not one of them nor are many others.

The OMOTM will continue with some of what the OGs did 30 or 40 years ago — maybe even longer.

The Old Men of the Mountain are going back in time with stories from their youth. Some will include one of the OMOTM’s founding members.

Sometimes the heading “The Old Men of the Mountain” is a misnomer because some of the OMOTM are not that old, by the group’s standards anyway.

The weeks seem to fly by; it is time for another column, and soon it will be time for another one, etc. etc.
