Don't mess with me, you young whippersnapper. I was a paratrooper in Europe!

An old and not unbowed warrior moves slowly down the street. Lost in his memories of a simpler time, he finds himself surrounded by a pack of much younger thugs.

"Hand over the green, pops! We don't want to hurt you."

"Speak up sonny", says the old warrior. There's a twinkle in his eye, obscured by the visual shield created by a fast-moving, expertly-wielded walking stick. *Crack!*

The old warrior continues on his journey, lost in memory lane. The youngsters lie in the street, having acquired some bruises with their lessons in life.
